When international refrigeration, AC, ventilation and heat pump experts flock to Exhibition Centre Nuremberg from 11 to 13 October 2022, it will be the first reunion of this kind since 2018. Chillventa, the world’s leading trade fair for refrigeration technology, brings together the specialists and leading lights of the sector from all around the globe. In the eight exhibition halls, Chillventa CONGRESS on 10 October, and numerous events from the supporting programme, you will finally get the chance to make business contacts face-to-face again, discover trends and interesting solutions, and refresh your knowledge. The number of registrations received so far is excellent. The professional community can look forward to an exciting event with a first-class supporting and congress programme.
The world’s leading fair for refrigeration technology is renowned for its coverage of the entire spectrum of products and solutions for AC, ventilation, heat pump, refrigeration, insulation and C&I technology, as well as its high-calibre discussions about current developments and interesting presentations by experts from the R&D environment and industrial practice. “Over the last four years, the Chillventa community has sorely missed the personal interaction and opportunities to gain new professional knowledge and fresh inspiration. The prospects for the autumn are looking extremely good. With an international exhibitor contingent of 69%, we have already matched the high level of previous events. This is evidence of a fantastic commitment by the community, especially in times like these. Likewise, 90% of the total display area from 2018 has already been booked. You can tell that the sector is genuinely keen to meet up and get talking again. All registered exhibitors can already be found online in our exhibitor database. Visitors can look forward to plenty of input on our key topics of energy efficiency, reduced greenhouse gas emissions, sustainability, waste heat utilisation, circular economy, indoor air quality, indirect cooling and digitalisation. They will find all this and more at the exhibition stands and in the supporting programme, which offers some interesting new features alongside established and popular highlights. Chillventa 2022 has a lot to offer industry stakeholders,” says Elke Harreiß, Director Chillventa at NürnbergMesse.
New addition to exhibitor forums
In the three established exhibitor forums featuring more than 160 presentations by experts, the around 90 exhibiting companies, organisations and associations provide visitors with compact, practice-driven insights from various thematic areas. The title of the forum in Hall 4A is “AC, ventilation & heat pumps”, Hall 7A focuses on “Refrigeration technology” and Hall 9 will attract all those interested in “Applications, training & codes of practice”.
A new addition this year is the forum in Hall 8, which takes a special look at a trending issue: “A practical guide to digitisation for craftspeople”. Trades-based businesses can head here to get practical tips on digitalising their business operations and workflows. Another new feature is the Expert Talks forum with specialists from the sector in Hall 7A.
Special presentations, guided tours and walkabouts for trainees
As well as the extensive programme offered by the specialist forums, Chillventa has other highlights in store for various stakeholder groups: Hall 4 is the venue for a special presentation on the topic “Insights into the handling of flammable refrigerants (R290)”, organised by the German Federal College of Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Technology. Hall 4A also has a special display area dedicated to the “Heat pump” and organised by AIT, the Austrian Institute of Technology. Anybody wanting to focus specifically on innovations in refrigeration technology/AC and ventilation technology should join the guided tours organised by publishing house Gentner Verlag, which also offers a special tour for trainees. The German Federal College of Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Technology is also conducting trainee tours of the exhibition.
Chillventa CONGRESS: The future of the industry under the spotlight
At the Chillventa CONGRESS on 10 October, the day before the exhibition, high-calibre speakers will share their knowledge from the R&D, industrial and political arenas. It’s where you will learn at first hand how the future of the industry is evolving and have the opportunity for in-depth professional discussions. The main themes of the congress will be explored in four different streams: heat pump technologies (English), Innovation Day Refrigeration Technology (German), Data Centres (German) and the ASERCOM-EPEE Symposium (English) on the topic “Multiple Transition Challenges in Heating, Cooling and Refrigeration”. The keynote address will be given by a speaker from the European Parliament or European Commission. The symposium provides information about current policy frameworks and regulations in Europe and worldwide.
The Chillventa CONGRESS will also focus on issues like sustainability, energy efficiency, circular economy, indoor air quality, low GWP refrigerants for heat pumps, updated F-gas regulation, REACH and PFAS. “From the very start, the Chillventa CONGRESS has been the No. 1 think tank for international Chillventa experts. On the day before the Chillventa exhibition, it explores current developments and presents the latest scientific findings to the professional community. “What sets the event apart is the networking and knowledge-sharing and the chance to discuss all these issues with one another,” says Dr Rainer M. Jakobs, technical coordinator of the Chillventa CONGRESS.
