The IIR worldwide

Focus on the latest events in Dubai, Paris, and Mumbay.

•    The IIR attended ACREX India 2019 at the Mumbay Exhibition Centre(India) from February 28 to March 2, 2019. Organised by the ISHRAE, this exhibition attracted 32,000 visitors around 347 exhibitors, which promoted their HVAC products and services. ACREX India 2019 was a great success!

•    Climate Control Middle East organised in Dubai its 3rd Edition of refrigerants review with representatives of governments, industries and associations of Gulf countries. The IIR Director General participated in a round table and presented the cold chain briefs (see IIR website) in a session dedicated to refrigeration for food.

•    On March 6, 2019, the French organisations CEMAFROID and CNAM signed a research partnership called Le Frigorifique. This collaboration should help promote French know-how in the fields of refrigeration and air conditioning. Focused on applied research, the two entities will work together on different types of projects, particularly in order to support professionals or develop test benches, for example for the needs of laboratories. They will also propose technical documentation in French to the sector’s industrialists (most documents are generally written in English). This partnership also aims to work with African countries in these sectors. The IIR was present at this event, attended by some 50 people.
