With over 250 exhibitors - including international exhibitors coming from 17 countries - the exhibition 'duo' of Infacoma and Aqua-Therm will be open from Thursday, 11 February, until Sunday, 14 February. The two exhibitions, where the sector of construction and the heating, ventilation and air conditioning industry will be presented, cover 11,000 m2 and are deployed in Pavilions 13 and 15. Infacoma and Aqua-Therm will feature, among others, hosted buyers (foreign trade visitors) from Cyprus, Russia, Turkey, Romania and FYROM, who have been invited by TIF-Helexpo to attend meetings with Greek exhibitors.
The internationally renowned Aqua-Therm exhibition is being held for the first time in Greece and is the result of cooperation between TIF-Helexpo and Reed Messe Wien, the Austrian subsidiary of Reed Exhibitions, the largest exhibition group in the world. It is one of the most specialised exhibitions concerning the sectors of residential and industrial heating, air conditioning and ventilation, water supply, sewerage and water management. Its exhibitors will include major enterprises of the domestic plastics industry and will be hosted at Pavilion 15.
Infacoma, celebrating 33 years of history in 2015, is the only exhibition in the field of building and construction and has proved exceptionally resilient, despite the difficulties facing the sector. The participation of Greek enterprises in the two exhibitions is particularly encouraging, despite the fact that the construction sector is facing problems. Nevertheless, Infacoma and Aqua-Therm will reflect the positive messages received by the construction sector, particularly on the tourism front, and its investment mobility. At the same time, the exhibitions will showcase all modern technologies and energy forms that have adapted to the sustainable growth requirements of the modern age.
In the framework of the parallel events of the exhibition 'duo', a 'green' project organised by TIF-Helexpo and Interiors from Greece will be set up under the name DPOINT Green Village, which will focus on sustainability, energy saving and utilisation of new resources. The event will include a virtual tour of 0+ HOUSE, a house that is harmonised with 'green' practices and is 100% viable (sustainability and low CO2 emissions). The event will take place in a specially modified area within Pavilion 13. Other events include the DPOINT GREEN CONFERENCE, which host professionals and academics involved in 'green' building and alternative energy sources.
On the occasion of the exhibitions, the Deputy Minister of Industry at the Ministry of Economy, Development and Tourism, Ms Theodora Tzakri, will visit Pavilion 13 (DPOINT Green Village events site) on Friday, 12 February, at 19.00, where she will speak about the funding tools of the new NSRF as a driving force for industry.
The two exhibitions will be open on Thursday, Friday and Sunday from 11.00 to 20.00 and on Saturday from 11.00 to 21.00.
