Chillventa 2020 goes online

GERMANY: Following the cancellation of this year’s Chillventa exhibition due to Covid-19, the organisers of Europe’s largest air conditioning and refrigeration show is to organise a virtual event instead.

According to the organiser, NürnbergMesse, the Chillventa eSpecial will offer three days of industry knowledge, dialogue and innovation from 13-15 October. 

NürnbergMesse maintains that the spirit and drive of the Chillventa exhibition will be reflected in the online event, with participants being able to establish contacts, cultivate networks, share knowledge, and discuss new products, projects and developments in the sector. 

“In recent weeks, our customers’ wish for an industry platform offering intensive knowledge sharing has taken shape, at least in digital form in the absence of a live event at the Nuremberg exhibition venue,” said Chillventa director Daniela Heinkel. “The Chillventa eSpecial is our response to the level of interest from our Community, and will reflect a large part of the world’s leading exhibition for refrigeration technology in virtual form.”

The Chillventa Congress will be held on Tuesday 13 October, the first day of the Chillventa eSpecial. On Days 2 and 3, the digital event will focus on lectures by the participating companies.

During the event, a range of communication options will enable the participating companies and individuals to contact each other quickly. For example, a matchmaking system will give all event participants suggestions regarding contacts that most closely meet their requirements. Other services will include chatrooms and many other options to meet business friends, and directly discuss and learn about new and innovative products and news from the sector.

“With the Chillventa eSpecial, we place particular value on direct and personal interaction for the entire duration of the digital event,” said Heinkel. “Just as our customers are used to at the on-site event, we must remember that Chillventa is the international business platform for the refrigeration, air conditioning, ventilation and heat pump sector. And if we can’t see each other in person at the exhibition venue in Nuremberg this year, we can enjoy meeting up with our customers via the web at the Chillventa eSpecial.”
