Chillventa is 95% booked

GERMANY: Chillventa, the biennial international refrigeration, air conditioning, ventilation and heat pump exhibition, is already 95% booked, more than nine months before the show opens.

The exhibition’s website lists 704 exhibitors booked so far across halls 4, 4A, 5, 6, 7, 7A, 8 and 9. It takes place from 8 to 10 October 2024 in Nuremberg.

“Exhibitors from all around the world are looking forward to the standout event in autumn next year. We are almost fully booked, with 95% of stand spots already taken. This fantastic commitment is overwhelming, and we are already looking forward to three exciting trade fair days,” said NürnbergMesse’s Chillventa director Daniela Heinkel.

The show will once again feature a wide-ranging supporting programme of talks and conferences in four specialist forums. In three of the forums, exhibitors will present their latest products and solutions, covering topics like applications, training and codes of practice, climate, ventilation and heat pumps, and refrigeration technology. 

The forum A Practical Guide to Digitisation will also be back with advice for skilled trade businesses in 2024. The supporting programme also includes numerous special presentations, guided tours and competitions like the German Championship for Refrigeration Technicians, 

High-calibre speakers will also share their expertise from research, development and industrial practice at the Chillventa Congress, which is held as always on the day before the exhibition.
