My gratitude to all the officials of PHVACR Society and ASHRAE for their support
Mr. Zeeshan Ahmed Siddiqui Chairman Karachi Chapter!!!
Despite the prevailing economic challenges and bans on imports impacting many companies, the HVACR Expo 2023 opened its doors today in Karachi. The PHVACR Expo 2023 promises to provide a platform for local manufacturers, international brands, professionals and B2B opportunities for Industries. This is the ideal time to meet up and share the new ideas.
During a recent exclusive conversation with Engineering Post, Mr. Zeeshan Ahmed Siddiqui Chairman HVACR Society Karachi Chapter said that recognizing the difficulties faced by exhibitors; the Pakistan Society has taken proactive measures to assist them. Exhibitors have been offered a 15% discount, even under these economic conditions, “The decision to offer a discount to exhibitors was driven by our spirit of giving back to our esteemed exhibitors, remarked Mr. Zeeshan Siddiqui.
While the smaller number of international exhibitors is unfortunate, the organizers have implemented innovative ideas to enrich this year’s expo. One notable addition is the entrance special marquee, providing a spacious and engaging environment for participants. Additionally, the expo features the “Made in Pakistan” pavilion, showcasing the local industry.
“Our aim with the consultant lounge is to facilitate meaningful interactions and knowledge exchange between attendees and experienced consultants.” emphasized Mr. Siddiqui.
Another highlight of this event is that this year ASHRAE Pakistan and HVACR Society are jointly conducting the HVACR Expo and Conference. This collaboration is the result of remarkable efforts of Karachi Chapter who worked tirelessly to bring the two bodies together “I would like to say thanks to Mr, Farooq Mehboob President ASHRAE and Mr. Abbas Sajid, from ASHRAE who supported this step and made it a reality,” said Mr Zeeshan Siddiqui. By joining forces, ASHRAE and the Pakistan HVACR Society aim to create a platform for professionals, researchers, and industry experts to gather, exchange ideas, and showcase the latest advancements in the field.
Mr. Zeeshan Ahmed Siddiqui, Chairman Karachi Chapter of the Pakistan HVACR Society while talking to Engineering Post, expressed his appreciation for the tremendous support received from the organizing committee, media, and all stakeholders involved in making this expo possible. Their collective efforts and dedication have been vital in ensuring a successful event.
“I am immensely grateful for the unwavering support and commitment demonstrated by the President Ahmad Nawaz as well as the whole team. Teamwork and collaboration have made this expo possible” commented Mr. Zeeshan.
This year to maximize attendance, the Pakistan HVACR Society has collaborated with the Association of Builders and Developers (ABAD), reaching out to various industries and extending invitations to increase footfall for exhibitors. The Chamber of Commerce, with its extensive network of over 30,000 members, has also been mobilized to generate greater participation and industry engagement. “The collaboration with ABAD, Islamic Chamber of Commerce, Engineering Development Board and Karachi Chamber of Commerce will attract a diverse audience and provide a platform for fruitful business interactions,” highlighted Mr. Zeeshan Siddiqui.
In a significant move towards transparency, an independent auditor has been appointed to oversee the event, ensuring the highest standards of integrity and accountability. We emphasise the importance of transparency and accountability in organizing an event of this magnitude. The appointment of an independent auditor underscores our commitment to upholding the highest standards of professionalism and ethics.
I am looking forward to welcoming all,” concluded Mr. Zeeshan Siddiqui.
