Chillventa eSpecial goes virtual from 13 to 15 October 2020!

The refrigeration, AC, ventilation and heat pump community can look forward to three days packed with professional expertise, dialogue and innovations when the Chillventa eSpecial is launched as a virtual event from 13 to 15 October. Participants will have the opportunity to make contacts, cultivate their networks, share knowledge and discuss new products, projects and developments in the sector. Prospective exhibitors can register for the event now.

“Due to the cancellation of numerous on-site events, certain restrictions on travel for salespeople and fewer meetings with customers, there is a clear need for interaction and new business relationships in many quarters. To meet this need in our community, we have developed the Chillventa eSpecial, which will present a large part of the world’s leading exhibition for refrigeration technology in virtual form. We are looking forward to a successful event in October,” says Daniela Heinkel, Director Chillventa at NürnbergMesse.

What’s in store at the Chillventa eSpecial?

On all three days of the event, the profiles of participating exhibitors from all around the world will be available to visitors on a digital platform. These profiles can contain comprehensive information on the company, its products and innovations. All exhibitor packages also contain free access to the event for an unlimited number of personnel, so sales teams can be dispatched to chase up new contacts and interesting projects. There will be a clear emphasis on direct personal discussions. During the event, exhibitor personnel will have a range of communication channels at their disposal to allow them to quickly contact relevant participants. In this context they are assisted by a sophisticated matchmaking system that suggests best matches for their requirements from among all participants in the event. Exhibitors can choose between three different packages (bronze, silver or gold) offering various benefits.

The Chillventa eSpecial will be accompanied by the Chillventa CONGRESS on the first day and by a high-calibre programme of presentations on the second and third days.

Chillventa CONGRESS: Tuesday 13 October

The virtual version of the Chillventa CONGRESS will provide experts with comprehensive insights into topical industry issues. Internationally renowned speakers will share their knowledge from research, development and practice and provide information on current policy frameworks in Europe and worldwide.

These topics will be covered in two lecture series:

  • Heat Pumping Technologies for Commercial and Industrial Applications
  • ASERCOM + EPEE Symposium
  • 6th Innovation Day Refrigeration Technology
  • Energy-efficient air conditioning of data centres

Hub for the refrigeration, AC, ventilation and heat pump community (Wednesday and Thursday)

With its extensive range of product range, the Chillventa eSpecial provides an overview of the industry with components, systems and applications for refrigeration, AC, ventilation and heat pumps. At the virtual event, these products will be presented in three parallel streams on the second and third days.

There will be presentations on the latest product developments and innovative solutions for overall energy performance and energy saving. A large part of the event will also be devoted to the many different aspects of refrigerants such as non-flammable low GWP refrigerants for refrigeration and heat pump applications, sensors for leak detection, recycling and the circular economy, and the eco-efficiency model. Other topics include the reduction of refrigerant charge, semi-hermetic compressors for R717, the selection of new refrigerant oils, compressor efficiency measurements, and certification programmes.

Eurammon will present a session on the use of R717 and R744, EVIA will cover the topic of fans, the VDMA will focus on filters and BFS will explore flammable refrigerants. The topic of heat pumps will also be covered in depth through presentations by AIT (Austrian Institute of Technology) and Germany’s Fraunhofer Institute.

The VDKF will look at data security specifically for businesses in the industry and explore the conscious decision to utilise virtual tools.

A session on refrigeration and AC systems in the context of the coronavirus pandemic will explore this current challenge from various perspectives and present the latest insights.

At the end of the three days, visitors to the virtual event will continue to have access to the presentations online.
