International events: NvVK

The Dutch Association of Refrigeration (NvVK) was founded in 1908, like the IIR with which it has been strongly linked over the years. It celebrated its 100th Anniversary in Arnhem (The Netherlands) on September 23, 2008 (in the zoo!), after having organized other events earlier in the year. The conference on September 23 summarized these events and presented the IIR's history and challenges. NvVK obtained official recognition: it became a Royal Dutch Society.
