The numbers: 8600 attendants, 9 primary conventions, 100 speakers, 30 hours of training sessions, 150 national and international exhibitors, over 250 attending brands.

«A balance that exceeds expectations, demonstrating not only companies’ general interest in the restart of the exhibition activity – irreplaceable time to do business, networking, to know the last market trends in preview and to test live the technological novelties proposed by companies – but also the importance and the outstanding topicality of the themes treated and of the competences shared in the ambit of the event», the event organizers state.

In the 3 days of conferences, workshops and educational meetings, it was highlighted how the efficient management of the thermal energy is a fundamental chapter of the future of the Country and, consequently, to what extent the refrigeration technician job is and will be increasingly central in the ecologic transition, as cold is an irremissible element of numerous chains.
