nuernbergmesseGERMANY: The continued success of Chillventa, the industry’s leading international show, has prompted the organiser to expand the event into hall 7A for the 2016 event.

The additional 8,850m² of hall 7A at the Nuernbergmesse is not the only change – halls 1 and 2 will no longer be used, the organiser opting instead to use the mirror image halls 8 and 9 instead.

Explaining the changes, Nuernbergmesse exhibition director Alexander Stein told the Cooling Post: “Chillventa 2014 was a very successful event and was fully booked. It demonstrated once again just how important Chillventa is for the international refrigeration, ac, ventilation and heat pump industry. As a result, we were unable to satisfactorily meet the large number of requests for more stand space from existing and potential new exhibitors in 2014.

Chillventa-halls“We have therefore decided to make a sensible, structural refinement to Chillventa and opted for a new hall configuration. It allows us to increase space in all parts of the exhibition. Halls 1 and 2 – along with their themes – have been mirrored in Halls 8 and 9. Plus Hall 7A has been added. We expect this change to bring about long-term, consistent growth in Chillventa for the industry,” he added.

The Chillventa exhibition has been a story of continuing success since taking over from the IKK show in 2008, turning it into a biennial event and giving it a permanent home in Nuremberg.

The next show takes place from 11 to 13 October 2016.
