This biennial event will see 100+ companies exhibiting top brand products, offering live demonstrations and giving advice on affordable and efficient solutions.

Leading experts will also share their knowledge and advice in each of the three main seminar theatres: the Air Conditioning & Heat Pump Theatre sponsored by GREE; the Refrigeration & Cooling Theatre, sponsored by Opteon Refrigerants from Chemours and the Training & Careers Theatre, sponsored by Toshiba Carrier.

The decision to include H&V companies has won the backing of all the leading trade associations, including the Institute of Refrigeration (IOR), Federation of Environmental Trade Associations (FETA), Refcom, the Building and Engineering Services Association (BESA), British Frozen Food Federation (BFFF), Association of European Component Manufacturers (ASERCOM) and the European Heat Pump Association (EHPA).

The wider industry has pledged its support for the event too, with 60% of exhibitors coming to The ACR Show for the very first time.

Expanding into these sectors has provided a bigger platform for companies to engage with the show and for us to deliver a show that industry has been asking for.

<strong><em>ACR Show exhibitors back national competition</em></strong>

Assessment advisor for WorldSkills International and WorldSkills Europe will also speak at The ACR News Awards on second night of show

The ACR Show, the UK’s only exhibition for the refrigeration, air conditioning, ventilation, heating and heat pump sectors is set to host the national SkillFRIDGE competition next week (16-18 February).

The competition provides a launch pad for apprentices in the sector to compete internationally at vocational skills competition, WorldSkills. In August 2015 Team UK had great success with Chris Baillie (BA Refrigeration Ltd, and South East Regional College, Belfast) gaining silver medal and runner up at the WorldSkills competition in Sao Paulo Brazil. Chris will be at The ACR Show to support the competitors and is and available for interviews.

Six apprentices from across UK colleges and training providers will be given a project to install and assemble on the Tuesday and Wednesday of the show, with the winner being announced on the Thursday afternoon.

The ACR Show has invited Jenny Shackleton, assessment advisor for WorldSkills International and WorldSkills Europe to attend the ACR News Awards on the second night of the show. Jenny will take to the stage to explain what WorldSkills represents, before being joined by silver medallist Chris, who will talk about how this event has benefitted him. The six SkillFRIDGE competitors and the colleges they represent will also be introduced.

Coriolis International director Mark Forsyth is the national SkillFRIDGE competition manager and lead assessor. Mark was responsible for creating the skill test and marking scheme according to WorldSkills international assessment standards. He said: “By participating in skill competitions, the UK is able to share best practice on vocational teaching, and raise standards and expertise in further education, skills and apprenticeships on a national scale.”

ACR Show exhibitors JAVAC, Lawton Tubes, AGas, FSW, HSS, Star Refrigeration; AC Accessories, Bruntwood and Advanced Engineering have each pledged their support for the event, donating tools and prizes.
