IKK 2008 is cancelled

THERE will be only one international trade fair for the air conditioning and refrigeration industry in Germany this year after all.
IKK 2008 is cancelled
After nearly 30 years existence and having grown to be the major European event in the acr calendar, the organisers of IKK have cancelled this year's event in Stuttgart.

A statement on the organisers website says simply 'IKK 2008 will not take place - detailed information will soon be available'

The show, which was due to take place from October 8-10, found itself up against strong competition from a rival show, Chillventa, which was established by an influential breakaway group of exhibitors pushing for a biennial event in Nuremberg.

IKK 2008 had attracted pledges from around 200 companies, mainly German and Chinese.

The rival Chillventa exhibition, by comparison, has attracted major support from most of the major intenational manufacturers and suppliers.

Chillventa currently boasts an exhibitors list of 524 companies.
