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 12 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 12 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 CRO 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.
The evolution of filtration
Mr Joost Verlaan, Vice President, AFPRO Filters
Where are we coming from? What are we doing today? What is needed tomorrow and in the future? 20 years ago, nobody would have been able to predict that filtration would move from protecting processes to protecting people. During his 12-minute keynote, AFPRO Vice-President Joost Verlaan is going to outline 'The past - the present – the future', explaining the connection between processes, people and our health.
Time for smart equipment
Mr Javier de Bordons, Director Product & Technology Knowledge, Johnson Controls
