08 / 10 / 2020

PRESS RELEASE

Brussels, Thursday, 08 October 2020

Chillventa is always a highlight on the HVAC&R calendar. ASERCOM, the Association of European Refrigeration Component Manufacturers, and EPEE, the European Partnership for Energy and the Environment, are delighted to join forces again this year – especially in these difficult times, when unfortunately, participants cannot meet in person. The two associations will co-organise, as they have done for the past ten years, a virtual symposium.

This year’s ASERCOM + EPEE eSymposium (Tuesday 13 October, 13.00-16.30 CET) will provide an ideal opportunity to learn about the European Green Deal, the upcoming review of the EU F-Gas Regulation, and exchange views on how EU legislation and policies impact the HVAC&R Industry.

The eSymposium will also be the opportunity to explore in interactive campfire sessions how COVID-19 impacted the HVAC&R industry in the previous months, what the EU Recovery Plan will bring, and to hear from our friends across the globe what opportunities and challenges they have been facing this year.

The ASERCOM + EPEE eSymposium will offer participants the opportunity to engage with speakers in every session, shed light on energy and climate issues from a national, European and global perspective and discuss how these levels are increasingly interlinked.
