The platform is designed to offer access to an exclusive virtual forum featuring exhibitor product information, announcements and demos, conference session, product presentation etc.”

The World needs a reliable and effective Cold Chain now more than ever. The coronavirus pandemic has further fueled the demand for refrigerated trucks to transport perishable goods, and is likely to create an urgent future need to move vaccines around the world at controlled temperatures. Apart from keeping the supply of essential goods flowing, the sector is helping to improve food security and cut down waste, while also enabling medical supplies to reach their destination safely.

Both ISHRAE and NürnbergMesse India, welcome every stakeholder in the Cold Chain and Refrigeration industry to make use of this platform and keep the business going.
