We have spent a lot of time reviewing and listening to the industry to the industry about the direction and style of the 2018 event.
Over 90% of companies told us we should expand our show title and develop a new logo that would keep the integrity of the ACR brand, while clearly defining our commitment to all of the industry sectors represented by incorporating the HV. The ACR Show has therefore become The HVAC & Refrigeration Show to widen its appeal to visitors and businesses alike
Over 60% of surveyed companies also said that most of their business is done in the south, while 60% of visitors to both the 2014 and 2016 event were from the same region.
In light of this, we have moved our show south to achieve our goals of increasing quality visitors and reaching a new audience. The industry can now look forward to the event taking place from 23-25 January 2018 at London’s ExCel Centre.
2018 will see the launch of a new sector – refrigerated and chilled food transportation.
The event will also include the series launch of the national SkillFRIDGE competition, together with working lunches for sponsors and invited guests; a three day series of live debates on key issues and a three day seminar programme with speakers invited from UK and European Associations. Institute of Refrigeration and WorldSkillsUK presentations, meanwhile will take centre stage.
The HVAC & Refrigeration Show, the UK’s only dedicated exhibition for the refrigeration, air conditioning, ventilation, heating and heat pump sectors – bringing brands to life.
