The international exhibition will feature collaborations with industry experts, as well as a series of complimentary professional seminars on green HVACR technologies and systems.
HVACR Vietnam, the most established international industrial exhibition in the country, will host its latest edition in Hanoi from April 18-20, after 11 earlier editions in Ho Chi Minh City.
The trusted exhibition for Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning, Air Filtration and Purification and Refrigeration(HVACR) technology and systems, organised by Informa Exhibitions and VINEXAD, is the ideal platform for international manufacturers and suppliers to launch new products, reach out to buyers, appoint agents and distributors, build brand awareness and establish business networks in Viet Nam’s booming economy.
Strong support from local and international exhibitors
This year, apart from local exhibitors, the event will also welcome international exhibitors from mainland China, India, Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey and the United States.
The Korea Building Energy Management System Association and the Taiwan Metal Industry Association are two international groups that will be present.
The China Pavilion will feature more than 40 companies presenting a wide range of HVACR products, with most of them participating in HVACR Vietnam for the first time.
Demand to soar in near future
Exceptional global interest in the annual exhibition has mirrored rocketing local and international demand.
Global revenue for energy-efficient commercial HVAC systems is expected to increase from $22.8 billion in 2015 to $47.5 billion in 2024, according to Navigant Research.
Viet Nam’s urbanisation rate is expected to increase to 45 per cent by 2020.With it, the cold-chain industry as well as the demand for air conditioning are set to expand considerably in the next few years, reported Vietnam Investment Review in 2017.
Gearing up to go green
There is also a paradigm shift towards energy efficiency and sustainable products and measures. Viet Nam’s Ministry of Construction has developed a plan to reduce energy consumption per square metre of development by 10- 15 percent compared to 2010 figures. It has also targeted 30 per cent of public buildings and 20 per cent of private buildings to achieve a green status, according to the Vietnam Green Building Council (VGBC).
In May 2017,the Viet Nam Real Estate Association signed a memorandum of understanding with property developers to build green buildings until 2022.
Experts say that the cost of a green building is only two to five per cent higher than that of a normal building, but the many benefits include lower energy expenditure, improved indoor air quality, enhanced home and office comfort, reduced air and moisture infiltration and increased durability of the property as a long-term investment.
As such, HVACR Vietnam will introduce a strong green theme in this year’s exhibition, featuring collaborations with industry experts, as well as a series of complimentary professional seminars on green HVACR technologies and systems.
Complimentary power-packed professional seminars
Throughout the three-day exhibition, a series of complimentary HVACR and Green Building seminars and technical talks will be held,hosted by HVACR Vietnam as well as its partners - VGBC and Vietnam Energy Efficiency Network (EEN-Vietnam).
EEN-Vietnam is a platform for partnership development and practical knowledge exchange between universities, engineers, energy users, energy consultancies as well as energy efficiency suppliers for the Vietnamese market, to deal with challenges on sustainable energy and adapt energy efficiency use objectives.
VGBC, an international non-profit organisation, was established in 2007 to raise awareness and lead the way for the development of green buildings in the country.
The HVACR seminars as well as the Green Building seminars will cover a multitude of topics:
Topics for HVACR seminars:
1. Assessments of alternative cooling technologies by Steven Brown, International Institute of Refrigeration.
2. Energy-efficient solution to buildings with all-year round cooling demand by Li Xianting, International Institute of Refrigeration.
3. How intelligent control valve (energy valve) can help in saving energy by Alvin Chan, BELIMO Automation AG, Switzerland.
Topics for Green Building seminars:
1. Dedicated outdoor air systems for green buildings by Umang Sharma, Director & CEO of Bry-Air Malaysia.
2. Designing a building façade with parametric dynamic simulations by Pedro Marques, Manager, R&D Consulting of Boydens Engineering.
3. Technology challenges and opportunities in energy efficiency for buildings and communities by IES VE (Singapore).
All participants who pre-register for the seminars will receive a certificate of attendance; interested parties can register on the official website of HVACR.
New B2B online meeting system
As an added value to exhibitors and buyers, the organizers of HVACR Vietnam 2018 will launch a B2B online meeting system, where both parties will be able to make appointments online before the show and later conduct one-to-one business meetings at the exhibitor’s stand during the three-day show at the agreed date and time.
This will give an opportunity to the exhibitors and buyers to find potential clients, locate investment opportunities, forge lucrative partnerships, broaden their business network, as well as share and exchange knowledge.
This complimentary service is available to buyers from Hanoi and other Vietnamese cities. Interested buyers can register for this service at https://www.hvacrseries.com/vietnam/, where they will receive a curated list of participants based on their interests. A human concierge will be available to help maximise the attendance value.
HVACR Vietnam 2018 will be held from April 18-20 at the National Exhibition Construction Center in Hanoi.
