Registration open for online trade show

BELGIUM: Registration has opened for the 2021 edition of Shecco’s online trade show for natural refrigerants and sustainable cooling technologies.

Taking place over a 24-hour period at the end of March, the Virtual Trade Show for Natural Refrigerant Technologies is expected to attract more than 100 exhibitors and over 5,000 attendees.

The event, designed for the global refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pump industry, will take place from 10.00 CET on March 30 to 10.00 CET on March 31. The organiser says the show is designed to fill the physical trade show void as the world continues to grapple with the Covid-19 pandemic. 

The first such event last year attracted 77 natural refrigerant companies as exhibitors and more than 4,200 attendees from 1,500+ organisations around the world.

“ATMO VTS 2021 will give that “real” trade show feeling, which is much needed these days,” said Marc Chasserot, CEO of Shecco. “The platform allows us to explore different halls, listen to live presentations, and make valuable connections with customers and suppliers from all over the world.”

Amongst some interesting new addition and improvements to last year’s event is the launch of new product innovation awards. The 24 hours of live webinars will include presentations on Shecco’s first annual report on the natural refrigerants industry, global training, the new EU F-gas regulation update, as well as food retail experiences from around the world.

Further information and registration details on this free-to-attend event can be found here.
