Organisers declare the event a success

With exhibitor record of 915 international companies, about 29,000 trade visitors, a high degree of internationality and a new Chairman named for the Exhibition Committee, Chillventa, the annual international refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pump trade show was a success, claimed the organisers. The event was held this year from October 9 to 11 at the Nürnberg exhibition centre.

According to the post-event news release, a new Chairman of the Chillventa Exhibition Committee was elected as scheduled – Hans-Joachim Socher, General Manager at Walter Meier, replaced Heinrich Reuß. Socher, in an initial brief statement, said: “I am looking forward to my new tasks as Chairman of the Exhibition Committee. It is the industry’s most important international platform. I and my colleagues on the committee will be available to help and advise the organisers.”

Richard Krowoza, Member of the Management Board of NürnbergMesse, said that he believed Chillventa and Chillventa Congressing ended successfully, with more than 200 congress participants and the international share of visitors as high as 55%. He stressed that the mood in the refrigeration, air conditioning, ventilation and heat pump sectors appeared to be good once again, which was confirmed by both exhibitors and visitors.

Thomas E Watson, President of ASHRAE, endorsed this view when he said that the positive energy was not only evident in the exhibition halls and stands but was also noticeable in the key figures of the exhibition.

The next Chillventa will take place in the Exhibition Centre Nuremberg from 14 to 16 October 2014, the organisers revealed.
