2011 AHR Expo to Break Records

WESTPORT, Conn. - With the economy showing signs of improvement, the 2011 International Air-Conditioning, Heating, Refrigerating Exposition (AHR Expo) is on track to be the largest Western states event in the show’s 80-year history.

The 2011 show is scheduled for Jan. 31–Feb. 2, 2011, at the Las Vegas Convention Center. According to Clay Stevens, president of International Exposition Company, which manages and produces the AHR Expo, more than 1,360 companies have already reserved over 300,000 square feet of exhibit space for the 2011 event. This is on par with some of the other record-setting AHR Expos nine months before the event.

“The recession has created pent-up demand for new equipment and energy-savings solutions, and as the world’s largest HVACR event, we are expecting close to 50,000 HVACR professionals from over 120 countries to seek these solutions at the 2011 AHR Expo.”

Show management reported that more than three-quarters of the 1,825 companies from the 2010 show in Orlando have already reserved their space for 2011. Based on these preliminary figures, Stevens said they are on track to surpass the last AHR Expo held in the West. The 2011 AHR Expo is endorsed by 31 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.
