Celebrating 75 years, the International Air-Conditioning Heating Refrigeration Exposition, fondly called the AHR Expo, will make its debut in a new venue when the show takes up residence in the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla., for the first time from Feb. 5-9.
Billed as the world’s largest HVAC&R marketplace, the AHR Expo, which had its debut in 1930, is the primary showcase where leading manufacturers as well as new entrepreneurial companies display the latest HVAC&R systems, equipment, components, related products and services.
More new products are launched, new technologies introduced and new corporate initiatives announced at the AHR Expo than at any other industry event. And the AHR Expo is where more HVAC&R professionals from throughout the world come to buy and sell, network and learn.
The AHR Expo provides an educational experience vital to company growth and continued professional development with the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers holding its annual Winter Meeting in conjunction with the show, while short courses, seminars and programs are presented by other major industry associations for the benefit of the attendees.
