The diversification Panasonic has shown throughout the years demonstrates that they are not afraid to take steps into new territories.”
During the event, attendees were given a tour of the accommodation in which they were staying, Hotel OD Port Portals. The hotel is installed with Panasonic ECOi two way and GHP ECO G plus DHW solutions, which have helped to reduce energy usage by 73 percent and contributed to significant cost savings in comparison to if solar panels had been installed.
Several upcoming products were also showcased at the event. Guests were given an exclusive preview of new HVAC innovations, including CO2 condenser units for the retail market; the datanavi app, which provides instant product information and service history details directly to a mobile device; and a new floor console, which features Panasonic’s air purifying technology, nanoe X.

Panasonic Europe’s chief executive Laurent Abadie also shared insights into what the future holds for the company and its continuing commitment to a better world.
Mr Abadie concluded: “In the next 10 years we will see more innovation in mobility then we have seen over the last 100 years. Electrification, connectivity and automisation will be at the heart of this major revolution. By embracing change, we will maintain our unwavering dedication to leading-edge craftsmanship, performance, and style, and our ultimate commitment to creating A Better Life, A Better World.”
