After a successful inaugural event in November in Columbus, OH, Emerson Climate Technologies, Inc. says it will host the second quarterly forum in support of its E360™ platform. The event will take place Feb. 18, at the Embassy Suites Anaheim in Garden Grove, CA.

According to Emerson officials, the E360 platform aims to create a meaningful refrigeration industry dialogue and help customers address the many challenges facing them today. With the North American Association of Food Equipment Manufacturers show beginning the following day in Anaheim, the forum figures to be a timely lead-in for those interested in discussing the future of the refrigeration industry.

The forum will feature keynote speakers Doug Fryett, president of Fryett Consulting Group; and Dr. Rajan Rajendran, vice president of system innovation center and sustainability at Emerson Climate Technologies. Fryett’s presentation will touch on global trends affecting foodservice today. Rajendran will speak on the changing landscape of refrigerants.

The E360 platform provides a number of resources designed to offer interested parties a 360-degree view of commercial refrigeration issues and advancements by addressing energy efficiency, equipment reliability and safety, environmental protection, and economic considerations.
