Industry show promises fresh initiatives

UK: The organiser of the HVAC & Refrigeration Show is looking to attract more larger stands to the event when it moves to London in 2018.

Formerly known as ACR Show, the event changed its name after the last event at the NEC in 2016 and announced a move to ExCel to take advantage of the perceived commercial opportunities in the South of England, London and the Home Counties.

The organiser promises an number of new initiatives in addition to large stands options from £199+VAT per m².

“We understand the considerable costs involved with securing enough stand space to create the right impact for your products and company,” the organiser says. “Our approach is to encourage larger stands back to the show, so we have restructured our prices to support this aim.”

In addition to its usual seminar format, a series of three working lunches and special Business Hub debates are planned. The business lunches, one on each day of the show, will allow sponsors and invited guests to mingle and network.

The Business Hub idea will see a panel of guest speakers from manufacturing, industry figures and retail sectors invited to present on the key issues surrounding smart cities, supermarkets and hotels.

The HVAC & Refrigeration Show will take place from 23-25 January 2018. For further details:
