POWER TALK: INDOOR AIR QUALITY & WELLNESS – THE NEW NORMAL
In a post-Covid19 world, designers and operators of buildings are facing new challenges – with the whole concept of standards of building hygiene and occupant wellness subject to new scrutiny. This will naturally put the ventilation and AC sector squarely in the spotlight as indoor air quality becomes a vital consideration both now and in the longer term. The day kicks off with an expert in the industry discussing what effect the global pandemic has had on the buildings sector, the new guidance provided to reduce health risks, and what part HVAC can play in improving building safety.

PANEL DISCUSSION: HOW DOES THE INDUSTRY NEED TO CHANGE?
The impacts of airborne pollutants seem certain to result in stricter targets on Indoor Air Quality standards. A new Environment Bill proposed by the government could be used to introduce strong, legally binding targets for improving IAQ. But how can these be implemented, and what measures does the industry need to take to improve? Hear from industry leaders about the latest in best practice, and how to adhere to new standards; from air quality tests within the planning process for a building to safe ventilation rates and new thresholds for indoor air pollutants.

IN FOCUS: IAQ INNOVATION 
With technologies evolving faster than ever, it is important for all areas of the industry to keep up to date with the latest research and innovations, as advancements in renewable ventilation and investments in those technologies continue to become available. A panel of experts explores the new cutting-edge innovations, and what lies ahead for the future of the industry.

IN FOCUS: A MORE HOLISTIC APPROACH TO VENTILATION 
Designers and manufacturers have to consider ventilation in the round taking into account not only air quality, but other elements of occupant comfort; the building’s energy and increasingly its sustainability too. So how do we square the circle of eliminating the risks from viruses and other pollutants with meeting the UK’s legal target to be net-zero on emissions from 2050?
