GERMANY: Last week’s Chillventa attracted 32,206 trade visitors, another record for the Nuremberg refrigeration and air conditioning exhibition.
The new record, a 5% increase on 2014, was announced by the organiser following the biennial three-day event which closed Thursday. International visitors made up 56% of the attendance, a similar figure to 2014.
Despite an additional 8,850m² of exhibition floor space, however, the 982 exhibitors was actually two less than in 2014. The organiser put this down to consolidation in the industry and a desire by some exhibitors for more space.
Chillventa 2018 will take place from Tuesday, October 16 to Thursday, October 18, again in Nuremberg.
