ICE 2018

International Exhibition and Conference on Cold-chain & Refrigeration Industry

ICE is excited to bring back its 10th edition to Hyderabad, Telangana, on 16th – 17th November 2018.

We have spent the last few years researching with industry leaders to gain a better understanding of cold chain challenges impacting the daily operations and processes. This year’s program has been carefully designed to address these pressures while providing practical ways to balance compliance, risks and costs. As the industry faces increased regulatory pressures and requirements, the related costs are guaranteed to grow, forcing the industry to constantly re-evaluate their best practices and key cold chain partnerships. Internal pressures are forcing cold chain leaders to look for more efficient strategies and proven ROI solutions to help mitigate these increasing costs.

ICE has been actively working towards growth of Cold-chain industry with an objective to bring forward the best technology solutions and increase the overall growth of this sector. It has been effectively acting as a medium to dissipate latest technologies, best practices and governing policies in the cold chain sector and has productively brought together the buyers, suppliers and all stakeholders.  After successful editions of ICE since 2009 in cities like Delhi, Mumbai, Agra, Ahmadabad, Chandigarh, Indore and Chennai, the 10th edition is being organized in Hyderabad, Telangana.  

Over the course of two days, ICE Exhibition, Conference and Workshops combine to deliver the most valuable and comprehensive business-to-business networking event serving the perishables industry.
