Chillventa 2008: A Flying Start To The New Year

Chillventa 2008 gets off to a flying start in the new year: 424 companies and organizations have registered for a net display space of 24,683 m2 as at 23 January 2008. The companies listed in the exhibitors directory also include country pavilions from Great Britain, the USA, Spain, Turkey and China. Some 80 more individual companies have been announced for these pavilions, but they are not yet included in the list of exhibitors, so the present total number of exhibitors is around 500. "We are very satisfied with the development of Chillventa, " says Gabriele Hannwacker, Exhibition Director of Chillventa Nürnberg 2008. "The number and names of the companies registered speak for themselves."

Besides the positive development in the number of exhibitors and the space booked, the supporting programme is increasingly taking shape. Chillventa's many honorary sponsoring organizations are involved with attractive and top-quality forums and symposia, such as the noted ASERCOM Symposium the day before the exhibition and the International Heat Pump Symposium organized by DKV. Other highlights include events on "Commercial Refrigeration" and "Refrigeration in the Food Trade".

ASHRAE, the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers, is also taking part in the supporting programme at Chillventa and will offer short courses from the ASHRAE Learning Institute. "According to the society, Chillventa provides an excellent venue for ASHRAE to reach its members in Europe and the Middle East.

The ASHRAE Learning Institute intends to provide real-world solutions to HVAC&R design and application problems. The speakers are recognized industry experts and course materials and the planned subjects are reviewed by technical experts, " explains Steve Comstock, Director of Publications & Education at ASHRAE.

The main purpose of the foundation is to promote education and science in refrigeration and air conditioning technology, for example, through the presentation of prizes, the award of scholarships and grants to official and non-profit institutions and general promotion of refrigeration and air conditioning research and development.
