Visitors and exhibitors can now visit the site ( to see the latest news and developments on the event, the only national exhibition dedicated to the air conditioning and refrigeration industry, which will take place at the NEC, Birmingham from 11-13 February 2014.

People can register via the website to receive regular updates on the show, including the latest exhibitors confirming stands, planned technology launches, visitor attractions and the hugely popular technical and business seminar programme.

Building on the success of this year's launch event, the show has the backing of major industry organisations, including the Institute of Refrigeration (IOR), the British Refrigeration Association (BRA), the Federation of Environmental Trades Associations (FETA) and the Building and Engineering Services Association (B&ES).

Many well-known companies which have committed to the 2014 show include: AFR Refrigeration, AHT Cooling Systems, Business Edge, Blygold, Broughton Electro Air Products, Comptec, CPS Products, Gram, Javac, Jumo, Lordan, Mastercool, Maxkold, Overton Recycling, Oxford Hardware, Primalec, Refco, Teknic Refrigeration, TNC Clips, and TQ Environmental.

Other leading air conditioning and refrigeration companies have reserved stands and are in the process of completing bookings.

The total attendance at the launch event earlier this year was 3,492, including visitors and exhibitor attendees. Jan Thorpe, event director, said: 'We are delighted with the excellent support for the show, both by the industry and the trade's professional organisations.'

She added: 'The 2014 event will be even bigger and better, providing unrivalled networking opportunities and enabling visitors to get up to speed with the latest developments across the refrigeration and air conditioning scene.'

Exhibitors at the launch event praised the quality and buying-power of visitors. Research showed that nearly 70% of people attending had either direct responsibility for purchasing decisions or influenced them.

Many visitors have already made significant equipment purchases as a result of attending the show. 'It reflects the overwhelming feedback from exhibitors that the show attracted people with serious buying power,' said Jan Thorpe.

The ACR Show 2014 will be staged in Hall 9, conveniently located for visitors travelling by both car and train.
