DALLAS — Over 1,800 companies have reserved more than 375,000 square feet of exhibit space at the Dallas Convention Center for the 2013 Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration (AHR) Expo on Jan. 28-30, making it the largest ever held in the Southwest. Leading manufacturers and suppliers from around the world will converge to showcase hundreds of innovative new products to nearly 45,000 industry professionals.
Those manufacturers will be in a festive mood, according to a recent AHR Expo survey, which showed that 70 percent of respondents expect the economy to be better in 2013 than in 2012. In fact, 15 percent of these manufacturers expect a “much better year,” while 28 percent of respondents expect the economy to remain the same. Just 3 percent expect it to be worse than 2012.
