Air Conditioning show switches dates for second edition
posted on: 18/7/2012 09:31:05

The second Air Conditioning and Refrigeration (ACR) Show has revised its dates for its 2014 show to avoid clashing with a similar international event.
The biennial trade show launched at The NEC from 13 to 15 March and attracted 2,773 visitors and a total attendance of 3,492 (ABC audited), along with 100 exhibitors. The show was due to return in March 2014 but has now confirmed it will run from 11 to 13 February 2014 to avoid clashing with Italian exhibition, Mostra Convegno, which focuses on heating, cooling, water and energy sectors.
Organiser Faversham House Group also confirmed plans to expand the event with more networking opportunities and visitor attractions including business and technical presentations, training and features.
Several companies have already booked for 2014 including refrigeration manufacturers AHT and GRAM, and tools and equipment specialist Javac (UK). The ACR Show also has the backing of industry associations including the Institute of Refrigeration, British Refrigeration Association and the Federation of Environmental Trades Associations.
Event director Jan Thorpe said 30 per cent of its visitor pool this year was contractors and installers, followed by manufacturers (18 per cent). Nearly 70 per cent of all visitors had either direct responsibility for purchasing decisions or influenced them.
“It reflects the overwhelming feedback from exhibitors that the show attracted people with serious buying power,” Thorpe added.
