HVAC&R Show adds building services

UK: The next HVAC & Refrigeration Show at ExCel in 2020 will run alongside a new building services show.

Building Services Live 2020 is a new event announced by HVAC&R Show organiser Datateam and supported by its BSEE trade magazine.

According to Datateam, the move “will bring together two highly complementary sectors to broaden opportunities for cross-industry networking and knowledge-sharing over the course of three days”.

Jacqui Henderson, event director of Building Services Live, said: “2020 will offer two dynamic shows under one roof – providing visitors and exhibitors with an event greater opportunity to showcase, see and discover the latest products, technology and forward thinking solutions.”

HVAC & Refrigeration Show event manager Karena Cooper says: “We are very excited about this co-location, which will enhance the visitor experience and make this a must-go-to event.”

The two events are scheduled to take place at ExCel from January 21-23, 2020.
