This week’s Chillventa exhibition in Nuremberg, Germany has been hailed as a success, with over 29,000 visitors and a record 915 companies attending the event.
Richard Krowoza of NürnbergMesse, which hosted the event, said: “Chillventa and Chillventa Congressing end successfully in 2012 with 915 companies from all over the world, some 29,000 trade visitors again this year and more than 200 congress participants.”
“The international share of visitors is very high at 55 per cent. The mood in the refrigeration, air conditioning, ventilation and heat pump sectors is sound to good again. This is confirmed by both exhibitors and visitors. The new opening days of Tuesday to Thursday were well accepted.”
Thomas E. Watson, President of the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), also summed up aptly: “You feel the positive energy in the exhibition halls.” This was not only reflected in the halls and on the stands, but was also noticeable in the key figures for the exhibition.
A new Chairman of the Chillventa Exhibition Committee was elected as scheduled. Hans-Joachim Socher, General Manager at Walter Meier, replaces Heinrich Reuß. He said: “I am looking forward to my new tasks as Chairman of the Exhibition Committee. Chillventa 2012 was a real success.”
“It is the industry’s most important international platform. I and my colleagues on the committee will be available to help and advise the organizers.”
The next Chillventa takes place in the Exhibition Centre Nuremberg from 14–16 October 2014.
