Chillventa 2014 sets new record


GERMANY: With the Chillventa 2014 exhibition due to close this afternoon, the organiser has announced a record attendance – topping 30,000 visitors for the first time.

The figure, if confirmed, represents a 7% increase on 2012 and far exceeds levels set by the exhibition’s predecessor IKK.

The large international involvement at Chillventa was again particularly impressive. 56% of the visitors and 67% of the exhibitors come from abroad. More than 30,000 visitors represent over 110 countries throughout the world.

“These figures show the great commitment and confidence of Chillventa’s visitors and exhibitors. It is the key gathering of the national and international market players in the refrigeration, air conditioning, ventilation and heat pump segments,” said Richard Krowoza, a member of the management board at organiser NürnbergMesse.

The records were also achieved despite a rail strike by German train drivers on the second day of the show.

The next Chillventa takes place in Nuremberg from 11–13 October 2016.
