We asked founder Steve Gill for his personal recollections of the first World Refrigeration Day.
So, World Refrigeration Day actually happened. How did you feel immediately afterwards?
Immediately afterwards I felt exhausted! The Coolest Day of the Year was also the longest day of the year for me. There had been a lot going on in the run-up to June 26 but everything really took off on June 25 when I woke early (around 5am) to find over 700 new emails. The emails kept arriving at the rate of around 100 per hour; as soon as I had answered one, three or four more had arrived.
