Seminar discusses trends to 2030

BELGIUM: Leading sector representatives from across Europe will meet in Europe next month to discuss developments in industrial and commercial refrigeration, process cooling and the cold chain.

The Eurovent Association and French HVACR association Uniclima are behind Refrigeration2030, which is going to take place on Wednesday, 17 May 2017 in Paris.

Refrigeration2030 is described as a hands-on, forward-looking seminar programme that brings additional value to manufacturers, building consultants, contractors, designers, planners, energy managers, public policy makers, supermarket retailers, associations and everyone else interested in the latest and upcoming developments concerning industrial and commercial refrigeration, process cooling, food cold chain technologies. It incorporates the European Union 2030 targets and elaborates how technologies and legislation could adapt and evolve until then.

“Our aim is to educate participants on where our industry, products, and legislation are heading towards the year 2030,” explained Uniclima secretary general Jean-Paul Ouin.

Felix Van Eyken, secretary general of the Eurovent Association, added: “The mission of the Eurovent Association has always been to confront our members and sector with upcoming realities and potential developments, allowing them to adapt in advance for a changing European and global environment. With Refrigeration2030, we aim to project our vision in a more direct manner together with key experts of our sector.”
