Daniela Heinkel, Chillventa Exhibition Director at NürnbergMesse, talks about how the exhibition has evolved and what innovations experts can look forward to seeing.
What can experts look forward to at Chillventa 2018? How has the exhibition evolved?
Daniela Heinkel: “In terms of display area, Chillventa has grown yet again. The new hall configuration that we were able to use for the first time in 2016 has proven successful. The feedback from visitors shows us how important it is to have a clear structure to the exhibits. This makes it easier for people to navigate the event and prepare for their trade fair visit. In addition, we are very pleased that many exhibitors have booked larger stands this year. This is also a sign of their enormous confidence in the event. Experts from all over the world come together at Chillventa to obtain information, share their views, and present and initiate new projects. We are expecting to once again welcome around 32,000 trade visitors and achieve a total of 1,000 exhibiting companies from all over the world for the first time. The Chillventa CONGRESS and the exhibitor forums in the halls are the know-how highlights of the event. Exhibitors and associations from all around the world, as well as trade visitors and journalists, use the event as their industry platform. Here is where you meet people, cultivate and expand networks and conduct business. The average proportion of international exhibitors is higher than 68%, which is very high. Once again, we expect 57% of visitors to come from other countries. Clearly, Chillventa is an internationally oriented event by experts for experts: “Chillventa Connecting Experts.”
How has Chillventa's international refrigeration, air-conditioning, ventilation and heat pump network been further developed?
Daniela Heinkel: “As I mentioned before, Chillventa in Nuremberg is a highly international event. And we want to live up to this claim on a worldwide basis. The international refrigeration, air conditioning, ventilation and heat pumps portfolio is unrivalled and has exhibited a very positive development over the years. NürnbergMesse has built up an impressive worldwide network in recent years comprising the leading exhibition Chillventa and the European Heat Pump Summit in Nuremberg, ACREX India, REFCOLD India and the European Pavilion powered by Chillventa at China Refrigeration. Experts from around the world can look forward to the international refrigeration, air conditioning, ventilation and heat pumps network that we will continue to expand, wherever it makes sense to do so. After all, our motto “Chillventa Connecting Experts” applies here as well.
What are the main thematic focus areas at Chillventa 2018?
Daniela Heinkel: “With its extensive range of exhibits, Chillventa presents a cross-section of the industry with components, systems and applications for refrigeration, AC, ventilation and heat pumps. This year, the trade fair and CONGRESS will focus on topics like the Internet of Things (IoT), the IT security of refrigeration systems, implementation of the Regulation on Evaporative Cooling, Cooling Towers and Wet Separators (42nd BlmSchV), current climate targets, eco-design, reclamation and treatment of refrigerants, efficiency through controls, innovation in heat transfer, air conditioning of data centres, heat recovery and system solutions for hot water.
Chillventa features an extensive supporting programme. Where and how can trade visitors catch up with the latest developments?
