Heat Pump Summit gets go-ahead

GERMANY: The organiser of the European Heat Pump Summit is confident of going ahead with the event in October following a further easing of Covid-19 restrictions in Germany.

Provided there is a sustained decline in infection rates, the Bavarian state government has said it will be possible for trade fair operations to resume by 1 September 2021 at the latest.

The decision is seen as a boost for the European Heat Pump Summit, which will take place in Nuremberg on 26 and 27 October 2021 in line with its usual schedule biennial schedule between the Chillventa exhibition.

“As a result of this decision by the Bavarian government, making business contacts face-to-face, watching interesting presentations live without a screen and viewing products and innovations at first hand will all be possible again in time for the European Heat Pump Summit 2021,” the organise says in a statement. 

The four main thematic streams at the European Heat Pump Summit 2021 are market trends, R&D, development of components, and heat pump applications. The call for presentations is online here.

Interested visitors unable to travel to the venue will still have the option of following the presentations as a live stream.
