It has been an endeavour of ISHRAE to bring HVAC&R Industry into the forefront and make ACREX INDIA the most coveted event for the built environment. Therefore ISHRAE has formulated a Build Fair Alliance (BFA) this year, with five independent shows catering to the various segments of the Building Construction industry. BFA will bring different players of the Construction Industry under this umbrella and thus offer all stakeholders of the industry an opportunity to acquaint themselves with the latest technology in the field.The Alliance comprises following events and will be conducted at the same venue as ACREX INDIA:

“With every edition, ACREX INDIA is becoming grander than before – offering more opportunities for stakeholders across the industry. Build Fair Alliance is an initiative to bring five strengths of the Built Industry under one roof. All individual experts under the Alliance will present the best ever platform with respect to participation and networking opportunities for the construction industry. We look forward to welcoming you there!” says, Ms. Sonia Prashar, Managing Director, NuernbergMesse India ACREX 2017 is expected to attract 500 exhibitors, 30 percent of them from outside India and more than 50,000 Decision-Makers, Architects, Developers, End Consumers, Advisers and Project Managers.  

The venue, India Exposition Mart (IEML), Greater Noida, Delhi-NCR, will be hosting the event for the first time. This location provides a larger exhibition area, which meets the call from ACREX exhibitors for more space. Even the area for which firm bookings have been received so far is up 15 percent on 2016.

India is the fastest growing economy in the world today – an impressive position it has held since the year 2015. Our theme for this year at ACREX India 2017, Rising India: Enterprising and Cool, is directly linked to the growing economy of India, laying emphasis on how welcoming a country can be.

“India is currently one of the favourites of the major international players. The world views our country as an engine for growth for their business,” said Mr. Ashish Rakheja, Chairman, ACREX India 2017. He added, “There is a greater focus on energy efficiency and end consumers, skilled workers and installers all consider there will be more and more need for energy-saving technologies. There is growth in all areas – Hospitals, Retail, Industry, Infrastructure and Commercial development zones – which offer incentives for central industrial plant businesses. The Refrigeration industry is also enjoying continued growth. All of this offers the ideal conditions to make ACREX India 2017 a success”.

ACREX India 2017 will have country pavilions hosted by Turkey, Germany and China. Besides these, there is individual participation by 25 countries including USA, UK, UAE, Taiwan, Italy, France, Hong Kong, Russia, Mexico, Sweden, Korea, South Korea, Thailand, Czech Republic, Switzerland, Malaysia, Vietnam and many more.

Besides participation of International Global Players the show will also see International support from organizations like ASHRAE, REHVA, ISKID, CAR, ANPRAC, Eurammon, KNVIK, ISIB, CIBSE, etc.

Focus on MSMEs

The intention is also to give small and medium-sized enterprises better opportunities to participate in the trade show. Special packages have been developed for them, including an exhibition area of 6-9 m² with a Hostess provided, along with Airport transfers, Hotel accommodation and tickets for important industry events as part of the trade show. Next year there will also be a focus on increased participation by companies in the automation industry. From the perspective of manufacturers and skilled workers, this sector offers strong parallels with the Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration technology industries.


The Indian Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers (ISHRAE), was founded in 1981 at New Delhi by a group of eminent HVAC&R professionals. ISHRAE today has more than 12,000 HVAC&R professionals as members and additionally there are 7,500 Student-members. ISHRAE operates from 41 Chapters and sub Chapters spread all over India, with HQ in Delhi.
