Inaugural Climate Summit is a breath of fresh air

Leading experts in A/C technology gathered at the first Climate Summit on the peak of Zuspitze.

DENSO recently invited workshops and distributors to attend the first DENSO Climate Summit – an exclusive event for industry experts in vehicle air conditioning, which took place from February 26th-28th on the peak of Zuspitze, Germany’s highest mountain.

The summit followed on from DENSO’s “Coolest weeks of the year” promotion, which rewarded garages for choosing DENSO OE quality A/C Compressors and Condensors with Aral fuel vouchers worth €10 each. Three pairs of highly-sought tickets for the inaugural DENSO Climate Summit were raffled amongst the participants.
