NUREMBURG, Germany — This year’s Chillventa was the largest ever. With 2 percent increases in exhibition space and 4 percent increases in exhibitor numbers, it provides the industry an even better forum to put on the best possible show. Held Oct. 16-18 in Nuremburg, Germany, discussion between global experts began on the day before the actual exhibition, at the Chillventa Congress. The compact one-day congress program gave experts from around the world the chance to learn about the latest trends and developments in depth.

“Chillventa has grown impressively and fast,” said Daniela Heinkel, exhibition director Chillventa, NürnbergMesse. “With six events in ten years, it has achieved a milestone this year, and has broken the 1,000-exhibitor barrier for the first time in its history. For the first time, 1,019 exhibiting companies from 45 countries are represented at the Nuremberg exhibition venue, covering all aspects of refrigeration, AC, ventilation, and heat pump technology. This is a pleasing development, since it once again clearly shows the value of Chillventa for the international community. There has also been a two-percent increase in exhibition space. That’s a very good result, building on an already strong starting position. And a clear sign that Chillventa has established itself as the international focal point for the refrigeration industry.”

“The international origin of the exhibitors and visitors at Chillventa reflects its global reach,” added Richard Krowoza, member of the management board, NürnbergMesse. “About two-thirds of the exhibitors and 60 percent of the expected 32,000 trade visitors have come from outside Germany. This emphasises just how important Chillventa is for the industry in the German-speaking world and beyond.”

The international role of Chillventa was also reflected in the international pavilions, which are hosting presentations from a total of six countries. In addition to South Korea, Thailand, the Czech Republic, Turkey, and the USA, China is represented at as many as three of the pavilions.

With its extensive range of products and services, Chillventa once again provided an overview of the industry, with components, systems, and applications for refrigeration, air conditioning, ventilation, and heat pumps. The exhibition and congress this year focus on subjects such as the IoT, IT security for refrigeration plants, implementing the 42nd Ordinance under the Federal Immission Protection Law (BImSchV), current climate goals, eco design, recovery and reclamation of refrigerants, the F-Gas Regulation, efficiency through controls, innovation in heat transfer, air conditioning of data centers, heat recovery, and system solutions for cold water.
