  • Understanding Leak Detection and Implementing Effective Programs (food retail track) — John Wallace, director of innovation for Emerson Climate Technologies Retail Solutions, will lead an informative session that will help retailers understand what leak detection is, how to best identify a program that supports their operational goals, and an in-depth overview of the 608 leak detection standard.
  • System Upgrades That Impact Sustainable Energy Efficiency and Cost Savings (food retail track) — Andre Patenaude, director of CO2 business development for Emerson Climate Technologies, and Renteknik Group President Darren Cooper will explore how you can improve efficiency and save money by enhancing your current refrigeration system.
