Hanoi (VNA) – More than 200 brands and companies from 12 countries and territories are showcasing their products at the 12th International Exhibition on Heating, Ventilation, Air-Conditioning, Air Filtration & Purification and Refrigeration System (HVACR Vietnam 2018), which opened in Hanoi on April 18.

The exhibition, held by the Informa Exhibitions and VINEXAD, features an extensive variety of products and technologies from local and international exhibitors from mainland China, India, Malaysia, the Republic of Korea, Singapore, Taiwan (China), Thailand, Turkey and the US.

At the opening ceremony, Le Hoang Tai, Deputy Head of the Trade Promotion Agency under the Ministry of Industry and Trade, noted that freedom of trade and economic integration requires high-tech products and modern management and production processes.

Thus, the exhibition offers good opportunities for domestic and foreign producers and businesses to exchange experience and expand cooperation in applying technology in production to improve their competitiveness, contributing to developing the industry sector and accelerating Vietnam’s economic integration, he noted.

Meanwhile, General Manager of Informa Global Exhibitions Asia Jack Wei said the event is expected to bring stable business value to the supply chain while creating momentum to develop green building and enhance energy efficiency.

HVACR Vietnam is a trusted exhibition for heating, ventilation, air conditioning, air filtration and purification and refrigeration technology systems. To date, there have been 11 editions, all in HCM City.

This is the first time the exhibition has been held in Hanoi. To cater to the demand of the local market, the organisers have decided to rotate the exhibition between the two cities, with Hanoi hosting it on even-numbered years and HCM City on odd-numbered years.

The exhibition will run until April 20 at the National Exhibition Construction Centre, No.1 Do Duc Duc Street, Hanoi. -VNA
