Located at the very heart of the UK, at the premier National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham, The ACR Show is the ONLY national exhibition for the refrigeration, air conditioning, ventilation, heating and heat pump sectors.

The ACR Show has won the backing of all the major trade associations, including the Institute of Refrigeration (IOR), the Building & Engineering Services Association (B&ES), the Federation of Environmental Trade Associations (FETA) and REFCOM.

The British Frozen Food Federation (BFFF) has announced its support for the 2016 event, which will see a number of new end users from the food sector attending, many for the first time. The Association of European Refrigeration Component Manufacturers (ASERCOM) and the European Heat Pump Association (EHPA) are also supporting the show for the first, reflecting its growing importance in Europe.

In others news, Strut Direct and Airflow Developments are to join Fujitsu and Scandia Refrigeration as ‘brand partners’ for the 2016 event. Strut Direct is a leading manufacturer and distributor of cable management systems, mechanical fixings and pipe supports for the water, oil, gas and rail industries. Airflow Developments designs and manufactures residential, commercial and industrial ventilation products.

“We are delighted to bring the Airflow Duplexvent Commercial range to the ACR show.” said John Kelly, Marketing Manager at Airflow. “The ACR show has traditionally been targeted at the ACR sector but with the increase in multi skilling of installers to provide a broader range of services, Datateam’s re-branding of the show to a Heating and Ventilation visitor profile provides us with an opportunity to reach a wider audience of specifiers and contractors who are looking for solutions to address wider indoor air environment issues”.

Malcolm Jones from Strut Direct said: “We are supporting the ACR show to maintain our presence in the UK market. Further to that we see it as an opportunity to launch our new STRUTFOOT ACCESS and STRUTFOOT QUAD products”.

Adding value to the visitor experience

The ACR Show will host informative and topical seminar programmes in three main seminar theatres – the Air Conditioning & Heat Pump Theatre, sponsored by Klima-Therm; the Refrigeration & Cooling Theatre; and the Training & Careers Theatre, sponsored by Toshiba Carrier.

Show organiser Datateam Business Media is a member of the CPD accreditation service and as such will produce fully accredited programmes in each theatre.

Tim Mitchell, sales director at Klima Therm said: “We’re very pleased to be exhibiting at the UK’s only national ACR show and to be able to promote learning through our sponsorship of the Air Conditioning and Heat Pump Theatre.”
