AHR Expo Expands 2013 Dallas Show to Meet Demand for More Space
To meet the growing demand for more exhibit space from both new and current exhibitors, AHR Expo Show Management has reserved 40,000 additional sq. ft. on Level 1 of the Dallas Convention Center for the 2013 event, taking place January 28th – 30th.
The world’s largest HVACR Show already encompasses the entire 2nd level of the Dallas Convention Center with more than 350,000 square feet of exhibit space.
“We are thrilled by the response from so many companies so far in advance of the Show,” said Clay Stevens, President of International Exposition Company, which produces and manages the AHR Expo. “Many of our long-time exhibitors are expanding the size of their current booths and nearly three dozen new companies have already reserved several thousand sq. ft. of floor space.”
Stevens attributes this increased demand to several factors – an improving economy, the need for information about new energy-efficient products and technologies, a return to the Dallas area, the need for industry education, and the desire to participate in the HVACR industry’s leading event.
With several months remaining before the Show, more than 1,400 companies have already reserved space, putting it on track to surpass the last Dallas expo that set several Southwest records in 2007. ASHRAE s Winter Conference is held concurrently with the AHR Expo each year.
The 2013 AHR Expo is endorsed by 35 of the leading HVACR 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.
