Like Jose Mourinho London HEVAR has left Chelsea and for the better many say as September 26 saw the exhibition fling open its doors to visitors at a brand new venue -the Royal Horticultural Halls. As befits the occasion, feedback so far has been just as grand as the halls
Wednesday marked the start of the two-day exhibition for HVAC professionals with London HEVAR featuring more than 100 stands showcasing industry exhibitors' latest products and a host of seminars.
At stand 69, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries' Kevin Simpson, sales manager said 'I think we've had good interest.
'It's usually difficult to tell, but in my view for a first day in a new venue, this has been very good indeed.
'I've been impressed with the location, the set up and there is much more room than there was in Chelsea.
'The distance between the stands is also much improved'
The free hot meal offered to visitors at London HEVAR each day also seemed to go down well, if the comments in the catering area are anything to go by.
The exhibition's first day of seminars proved popular with visitors as key players such as HVCA's Jack McDavid chaired Wednesday's M&E sustainability session. This session highlighted why sustainability is so important to businesses. Visitors got to hear about company quick wins in the form of five uncomplicated changes they can make to a building to see an immediate impact on energy performance.
Daikin and Trox are just two of the big names from the industry at the show. Staff from Trox, the leading HVAC solutions manufacturer, kicked off its Trox academy for the first time on Wednesday.
Kevin Sweeney from Herz Valves at Stand 83 and 84 said: 'The quality of the people here at London HEVAR is always very good'.
'I think its worth coming down to exhibit because of this'.
