The fifth edition of Chillventa, the professional trade show for experts in refrigeration, air conditioning, ventilation and heat pumps will take place this October 11-13 and is expected to be the largest edition yet.
The one-day Chillventa Congress will kick off the event on 10 October and invites interested trade visitors to find out about the latest trends and developments in the industry. For the first time ever, the trade show introduces the Chillventa Award, presented in the four categories: commercial refrigeration, industrial refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pumps.
“A good three months before the start of the fair the outlook for Chillventa 2016 was already very good. As things stand today, we will exceed the excellent results from 2014 for exhibitor numbers and exhibition space. We are expecting around 1,000 exhibitors and will again be welcoming more than 30,000 trade visitors from all over the world. The large international contingent among exhibitors (more than 65%) and trade visitors (more than 56%) impressively underscores the key significance of Chillventa as the leading fair for the international refrigeration, AC, ventilation and heat pump communities,” explains Richard Krowoza from the NürnbergMesse management team.
This year’s expansion will see Chillventa add new halls and rearrange the layout, to enable the refrigeration and AC sectors to be organized more thematically for the future. A brand new hall will be brought into operation for 2016 and the exhibitor’s expansion is such that a further hall has been commissioned for 2017. Moreover, the event will focus on issues such as current climate targets, eco-design, refrigerant choice, efficiency through controls, innovation in heat transfer, the limits of refrigeration technology and air conditioning of data centers. Lastly, Chillventa will also have several special presentation areas on topics such as heat pumps for industrial and commercial applications and energy audits for AC and ventilation systems.
Thematic Focus Areas and the Congress
With its extensive range of exhibits, Chillventa presents a cross-section of the industry with components, systems and applications for refrigeration, AC, ventilation and heat pumps. This year, the focus of both trade fair and congress will be on issues like current climate targets, eco-design, refrigerants, efficiency through controls, innovation in heat transfer, limits of refrigeration technology and air conditioning of data centers. As well as innovations at exhibitor stands, there will once again be the usual exciting range of special presentations on topics like energy-efficient computing centers, heat pumps for industrial and commercial applications and energy audits for AC and ventilation systems. Moreover, the event will play host to three forums, where renowned speakers will hold more than 120 talks on cutting-edge topics. The latest product developments and innovative solutions for energy efficiency and energy saving will be showcased in hall 9 (applications, training and codes of practice), hall 7A (refrigeration technology) and all 4A (AC, ventilation and heat pumps).
Network Expansion and International Presence
With each edition, Chillventa strives to increase the number of international participants and this year is no different. With the leading Chillventa trade fair and European Heat Pump Summit in Nuremberg, ACREX India and the European Pavilion powered by Chillventa at the China Refrigeration show, NürnbergMesse has established a worldwide refrigeration, AC, ventilation and heat pump network. And, according to the organizers, the portfolio continues to grow. “We are very pleased to have been commissioned by the Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) to organise the German Pavilion at the AHR Show in Las Vegas January 2017. In addition, refrigeration technology will also play an important role at the Beviale Moscow in February 2017. Experts worldwide can look forward to the international refrigeration, AC, ventilation and heat pump network that we are going to continue to expand successively wherever it makes sense to do so,” reveals Alexander Stein, executive director Chillventa, NürnbergMesse.
