On 22 and 23 October 2019, heat pump experts from around the world will gather for the sixth European Heat Pump Summit – powered by Chillventa at Exhibition Centre Nuremberg. The event facilitates professional dialogue on market developments, technology and application trends relating to all aspects of heat pumps. The accompanying Foyer Expo is a welcome enhancement to the European Heat Pump Summit that provides a platform for participating companies to showcase their latest products and innovations.

“Alternating with the biennial Chillventa trade fair, the European Heat Pump Summit in Nuremberg once again pools the expertise of the heat pump community in its high-calibre presentations and workshops. It provides international experts with the opportunity for intensive knowledge transfer on topics like industrial and commercial applications for heat pumps, residential construction, hybrid systems or components," says Daniela Heinkel, Senior Manager European Heat Pump Summit, NürnbergMesse.

The internationally renowned speakers come from R&D establishments, universities, test centres and laboratories, energy utilities and associations, and in particular from component manufacturers.

They will address an international audience of industry professionals including technicians, designers, product developers, component manufacturers and suppliers, decision-makers and consulting engineers for product development, architects and planners working in all areas of heat pump production and applications in industrial and commercial environments.

Foyer Expo combines product information and professional dialogue

At the Foyer Expo, the focus will be on the latest products and innovations from the exhibiting companies. “Already, six months before the start of the European Heat Pump Summit, we are delighted to have received confirmations from numerous exhibitors and sponsors. We are very happy about this positive response,” explains Daniela Heinkel.

The European Heat Pump Summit is directed at researchers, manufacturers, designers, energy consultants and operators of municipal, commercial and industrial properties. The combination of high-calibre conference programme and Foyer Expo, and the biennial Chillventa trade fair which also provides comprehensive coverage of the topic of heat pumps, are what have made Nuremberg into the “Heat Pump City”.
