Just over a month before the event, we talked to Elke Harreiß, Head of Department Chillventa at NürnbergMesse, about what Chillventa has to offer this year.
Mrs. Harreiß, what can the trade visitors of Chillventa look forward to this year?
Elke Harreiß: The first on-site chillventa since 2018 – of course, they are particularly excited about the reactions of the industry and the development. When the preparations started, it was clearly noticeable for us: Our customers have a great desire to meet, exchange and network in person again. Our spring events at Messeplatz Nuremberg provided additional confirmation: These have all taken place successfully. We received very positive feedback from all sides about how nice and important it is to finally put projects on the track with each other personally again. Trade fairs are the ideal platforms for this.
The Chillventa is also developing accordingly well. We currently expect around 800 exhibiting companies on site, which will come to Nuremberg’s Messeplatz from over 40 countries in October. The industry is finally meeting again in Nuremberg – in person and on site.
What’s new at Chillventa?
Elke Harreiß: There is a lot to discover at Chillventa in October. We are sure of that. Both the product presentations of the exhibitors and the supporting program will also convince the experts in 2022. The exhibiting companies present new products and solutions as well as the current trends in the industry to the refrigeration, air conditioning, ventilation and heat pump specialists. If you want to get a first overview in advance, you can now do so in the new exhibitor and product area on the website and thus put together your personal agenda for visiting the fair: www.chillventa.de/aussteller-produkte
In the exhibition halls, the focus will again be on direct exchange with a large number of experts and qualified suppliers from all over the world. Particularly exciting for craftsmen in the supporting program: the forum “Shaping digitization practically in crafts” in Hall 8, which will take place for the first time this year. Craft businesses will find practical tips for the digitization of their operations and work processes here. But there are also many useful tips and exciting lectures for refrigeration and air conditioning specialist companies in the three exhibitor forums. These are just two examples that the Chillventa community can look forward to.
What are the main topics of Chillventa 2022?
Elke Harreiß: Chillventa is known as a trend barometer and therefore reflects the central and cutting-edge topics in the fields of refrigeration, air conditioning, ventilation and heat pump technology in 2022 like no other trade fair worldwide.
Both in the supporting program and at many exhibitor stands, the focus is on sustainability. Other key topics are: Energy performance of refrigeration systems, circular economy, indoor air quality, indirect cooling, digitization and IT security.
What highlights does the supporting program offer for the professional world?
Elke Harreiß: As already mentioned, the new forum “Designing digitization practically in crafts” is certainly a program item that craftsmen in particular should write down in the calendar. In addition, there will be three other thematically structured exhibitor specialist forums: In Hall 4A, everything revolves around “Climate & Ventilation & Heat Pump”, in Hall 7A the focus is on refrigeration technology and in Hall 9 everyone interested in “Applications & Training & Regulations” will find their place. Around 90 exhibiting companies impart compact and practical knowledge on the forums in over 160 expert lectures.
Special presentations and guided tours about the fair round off the accompanying program: Find out more about “Handling flammable refrigerants (R290) – An insight” and in Hall 4A on the topic of “heat pump” or let yourself be guided specifically through the trade fair about innovations in the field of refrigeration technology / air conditioning and ventilation technology. By the way, the guided tours are also offered especially for trainees.
We are particularly looking forward to a highlight: As part of the WorldSkills Competition 2022 Special Edition, which will be carried out decentrally this year, the professional world championship in the discipline of refrigeration and air conditioning will take place once at Chillventa. All visitors are cordially invited to cheer on the participating specialists in Hall 3, and of course also stop by the federal performance competition in Hall 9!
Last but not least: Already on the day before Chillventa, the Chillventa CONGRESS starts, where top-class speakers from research, development and practice share their knowledge.
So there is definitely the right highlight for all stakeholders! We look forward to welcoming you to Chillventa 2022 true to the motto Chillventa Connecting Experts.
