She says, “Exhibitors are booking early to secure the right location, to get a good price and to make full use of the exhibitor marketing packages are effective immediately.” The HVAC & Refrigeration Show is in a very unique position, she says: “Let’s not forget that it’s the only commercial HVACR event in the UK and we’ve totally refreshed it to meet the needs of the modern market.”
Karena continues: “We are committed to producing an outstanding, market-driven industry event that promotes innovation and supports industry growth across multiple sectors.”

The HVAC & Refrigeration show’s main strategic platforms for industry engagement are;
· Dominating Brand strategy – through marketing campaigns
• Product insight strategy – from exhibitors
· Wide communication strategy – through the show’s PR communications teams and networking events

For the first time ever and in a very unique move, the show is also giving contractors and consultant the opportunity to exhibit through new trade partnerships with construction companies, architectural firms and end users endorsements.
While the show will be continue to be promoted to the core markets, further investment will see it extends its reach to connect with end users in each of the vertical markets. Karena explains: “Core markets are just that, they are the foundation on which this industry relies on and we remain committed to growing those relationships. However, we will also be working hard to engage end users our vertical markets as they also play an important role in driving the industry forward.”
Working links and communications with industry partners, organisations and associations continue to be very important adds Karena: “There are many associations, and they endorse industry standards report on latest legislation and provide members with accreditation, we rely on their support to add value to the visitor experience.”
