Wire & Gas 2018 is Asia-Pacific’s premier event for those working in automotive thermal management and electrical who want to future-proof their knowledge and skills in ways that can be immediately and profitably applied.

The convention returns to VASA’s birthplace, the Marriott Surfers Paradise Resort & Spa in Queensland on the weekend of August 3-5 2018.

Wire & Gas delegates will be inspired by keynote speaker Anthony Kittel, the owner and managing director of multi-award-winning Australian manufacturing success story Redarc Electronics.

The microphone will then be handed to Australasia’s leading automotive repair business mentor Rachael Sheldrick AKA Workshop Whisperer, who will help turn inspiration into actionable steps for delegates to turbo-charge their business or career.

The training and educational content of Wire & Gas will be spread across classroom seminars held at the Marriott and hands-on practical sessions at the expanded SuperCool facility in Ormeau, covering topics including:

  • Safely and profitably working on hybrid and electric vehicles
  • Upping your diagnostics game for modern AC systems with variable compressors, critical charge weights and R1234yf
  • Successfully modifying the popular Ford Ranger and other vehicles that use PCM without causing electrical dramas and fault codes
  • Diagnosing diesel particulate filter and exhaust gas recirculation problems
  • Making the switch to lucrative work on heavy commercial equipment powered by Cummins diesel engines
  • Optimising your use of online customer reviews, business listings and third-party booking sites
  • The cold chain’s major role in solving the global food waste crisis
  • Safe storage, transport and working practices when using flammable refrigerants

Formal networking opportunities, for which Wire & Gas is famed, will take place at the Marriott and kick off on the evening of Friday August 3 with Happy Hour in the trade show area.

A relaxed start to the Saturday will follow, with the trade show area open from breakfast until morning tea before the presentations and training begin. The day will conclude with the 25th Anniversary gala dinner with awards ceremony and live entertainment.

Sunday morning will start with transfers to SuperCool for practical training sessions and the event will finish up mid-afternoon to ease homeward travel connections for delegates.

It really will be this year’s must-see event.
