86 New Product Technology Presentations To Be Featured In Three Theaters At The 2012 AHR Expo
Visitors to the 2012 AHR Expo in Chicago January 23-25 can get a sneak preview of the latest new products and technologies that will be impacting the HVACR industry by attending some of the 86 presentations taking place in three New Product Technology Theaters.
Ranging from the latest in micro thermo technologies to the future of air purification, manufacturers from around the world will be showcasing their newest products and solutions during 15-minute presentations all three days of the Show. The presentations are complimentary to all attendees and seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
“Based on demand from exhibitors, we had to add more presentation times and a third theater,” said Clay Stevens, President of the International Exposition Company that produces and manages the AHR Expo. “The presentation schedules for all three Theaters are currently filled.”
According to Stevens, it is a very positive sign that despite the uncertain economy the HVACR industry seems to be moving confidently ahead. He cites a recent exhibitors’ survey where nearly three-fourths of the respondents said they expect a better year in 2012. The same survey found that 82 percent expect sales to increase in 2012, with 29 percent expecting increases of more than 10 percent. Another strong indication of a positive economic outlook is that exhibitors have reserved over 415,000 square feet of space, making 2012 the largest AHR Expo in its 82-year history.
The 2012 AHR Expo will feature more than 1,900 exhibitors from around the world showcasing hundreds and hundreds of innovative new products to over 50,000 attendees and exhibitor personnel. The 2012 AHR Expo is endorsed by 35 leading HVAC/R industry associations and is co-sponsored by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) and the Air-Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI). The Heating, Refrigeration and Air-Conditioning Institute of Canada (HRAI) is an honorary sponsor. ASHRAE s Winter Conference is held concurrently with the AHR Expo each year.
