Chillventa near sell-out

GERMANY: This year’s Chillventa exhibition in Nuremberg is “almost booked out” according to the organiser NürnbergMesse.

The company’s website lists 917 exhibitors, a reasonable increase on the 844 exhibitors at the last show in 2022. 

The event, which takes place between 8 and 10 October, promises a number of new features, particularly in hall 9 where Chillventa is placing a focus on international start-up companies. Right alongside is a Young Innovators pavilion where up-and-coming German companies will be presenting their innovative products. 

The show will again be featuring a programme of four trade forums covering themes such as refrigeration systems, air conditioning, ventilation and heat pumps; application, training and regulations, and also digitalisation.   

The three-day show will also include special presentations, guided tours and competitions, such as the German Championship for Refrigeration Technicians. The Chillventa Congress, which takes place one day before the exhibition, offers an additional platform for in-depth discussion with top-level speakers from the fields of R&D and industrial practice.
