Welcome to the European Heat Pump Summit 2021: Register now!

On 26 and 27 October 2021, in the year between the biennial Chillventa trade shows, the international heat pump community will gather as usual in Nuremberg for the European Heat Pump Summit. At the event, experts will share their high-calibre professional insights into market developments, technology and application trends relating to all aspects of heat pumps. At the accompanying foyer expo, the participating companies can also present their latest products and innovations. This year the presentations will also be broadcast online for the first time as a live stream.

“In these unusual times we are particularly pleased to once again be the platform for high-calibre knowledge transfer and interesting workshops and discussions covering the various aspects of heat pump technology. The need for dialogue in the sector is greater than ever. We are responding proactively to the current situation by also offering all presentations online as a live stream. As a result, we are giving those participants who may still be affected by travel restrictions in October the opportunity to nevertheless take part in the event. The full experience with face-to-face exchanges is of course only possible on site,” says Daniela Heinkel, Director of the European Heat Pump Summit at NürnbergMesse.
