We can all agree that the year 2020 was one of the most unpredictable years, not just in our personal lives but also within the HVAC&R industry.
During the hard lockdown within South Africa, we had very limited to almost no interaction with customers, suppliers, and colleagues, not to mention the FRIGAIR Exhibition and many other events that were postponed or entirely cancelled.
With the support of our trusted partners, the ‘On the Road’ 2021 Expo came to life as a means of reconnecting. This expo was not your usual exhibition as it has been travelling across South Africa from one Eurocool branch to another showcasing the latest energy-efficient products.
There were two parts of the exhibition, the daily show, and the evening show allowing guests to visit the show around their busy schedules.
Guests had the opportunity to meet our trusted partners, experience the products through live demonstrations, and gain knowledge about the technical aspects of the products. Some of these live demonstrations included:
- The Danfoss trailer with a fully functional Optyma Unit
- The Bitzer Ecostar + the IQ Module
- Ebm-Papst Fans
- The new Eurocool UltraPack condensing unit
- Gree Air-conditioning
- and many more.
Not only did guests have the opportunity to experience each unique product but they were also able to enter one of several lucky draws that were sponsored by Bitzer, Danfoss, Embraco, BNF, Kulthorn Kirby, Fuchs Lubricants, and Testo.
“The exhibition had its challenges in terms of lockdown levels that changed during the time from January, but it was a big success and the visitors enjoyed it,” says Dedré van Tonder.
All Covid-19 regulations were adhered to. Upon entry, guests were scanned, and hands were sanitised. Social distancing was kept, and sanitising bottles were stationed at each display. Guests also received their very own drinking mug for refreshments and a Bitzer buff for use as a face mask.
A special thank you to all our trusted partners who have participated and contributed to the first of many ‘On the Road’ exhibition.
