Charities benefit from Chillventa visit


BELGIUM: Visitors to this week’s Chillventa exhibition could win a prize and, at the same time, raise money for charity while trudging the aisles.

The Hiking Challenge, organised by European association Eurovent, will enable visitors to collect stamps at the booths of participating Eurovent members. The more stamps collected, the higher the amount of money donated to charity. In addition, participants will have the chance to receive a limited edition Eurovent beer mug.


Participants can pick up their Hiking Passbook at the Eurovent stand (9-410) or the Eurovent Certita Certification stand (4A-413 and 6-115).

Participants are free to choose whether their prize money is donated to either the Italian Red Cross, supporting the casualties of the earthquake in Amatrice, or Liberale Flüchtlingshilfe, a Germany-based association providing life-saving drinking water to refugees.
