Chillventa opens to packed halls
Over 30,000 visitors are expected in Nuremberg this week to visit Chillventa, Europe’s leading refrigeration and air conditioning show.
The show, which opens today, promises to be the largest event in the history of Chillventa and its predecessor, IKK. The display area is already 13% larger than 2014, with just under 1,000 exhibitors. Early indications suggest that the show may exceed previous attendance records.
Anticipating a number of key announcements this week, the Cooling Post will keep you up-to-date with all the latest news, announcements and events during the show.
