26 September 2018, 19:30-22:30h
Make sure not to miss the key event of the 2018 EUROVENTSUMMIT: the Eurovent Innovation/HUB powered by ebm-papst.
William Pagani's 'Future of commercial refrigeration'
In the inspiring environment of Pabellón de la Navegación, a naval museum about the history of Spain's shipping industry, you will be taken back to the middle ages before looking into the future.
After the talks, the event will transform into an after-show party, during which you can enjoy a cocktail dinner at the museum's terrace with riverside view, as well as a special ebm-papst welcome drink designed for the event.
Leading personalities from in and outside the industry will give visionary, non-commercial keynote presentations in a TED-style manner. No PowerPoint, minimal text, more animations, precisely 10 minutes (promise).
Keynote talks by leading personalities from in and outside the industry
Connectivity as a key to smart solutions
Mr Karsten Fuchs, Director Market Segment VAC, ebm-papst
Gear yourself up for a state-of-the-art opening keynote speech, in which Karsten Fuchs claims that “Digitisation will change the HVACR industry! What can be digitalised will be digitalised!” To him and his company ebm-papst, digital interconnection is bringing radical changes to the industry. Does it offer an added value to consumers? Will they pay for it? Is digitisation a threat or opportunity? Does it lead to new business models? Answers to these and more questions will be provided live on stage in Seville – in precisely 10 minutes, of course.
Cybersecurity for connected HVACR equipment
Mr Christian Ellwein, CEO, KRIWAN Industrie-Elektronik
In his speech, the globally renowned security expert Christian Ellwein interactively assesses the risks of connected controllers, inverters and the like. The CEO of KRIWAN will let you know whether HVACR technologies can be hacked while providing ideas for a better security. If any, which controller is he going to hack? Will he be able to manipulate the AC system of Pabellón de la Navegación on stage? Turn on your firewall and get ready for Christian.
Time for smart equipment
Mr Javier de Bordons, Director Product & Technology Knowledge, Johnson Controls
The HVACR industry is consuming a large portion of buildings' energy. Our industry is in the spotlight! Are we doing all we can? Is our industry's technology evolving fast enough? What about other technologies? JCI's Javier de Bordons is going to shed light on these and more questions in a state-of-the-art manner.
Cybersecurity is the new Safety for the 21st Century
Mr Ken Modeste, Director of Connected Technologies, UL
We saved the best for the last: UL’s Ken Modeste, a globally known expert on cybersecurity, interoperability and protocol compliance – flying in from across the Atlantic.
With the advent of IoT in the HVACR domain, and understanding that we have a myriad of opportunities, risks and regional and governmental potential regulations, what should industry do? How do you begin to demonstrate assurance that your products and systems are safe and secure? As an end-user, how do you focus on the trustworthiness of systems that you are deploying in your environment? With all these factors being considered, how do you focus and filter out the noise?
Ken says: "Primarily, by doing one thing." Join him in Seville to learn more.
