WESTPORT, Conn. - Ac-cording to an online survey recently conducted by the Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigerating Exposition (AHR Expo), HVACR professionals are most interested in learning more about improving energy efficiency, building automation, green building technology, IAQ, and alternative energy sources. More than 800 responses from around the world were received and analyzed from the 2006 show's attendees to help gauge the pulse of the industry.

"Given the high cost of fuel and the ongoing desire for more healthy living environments, there is a critical need to learn more about the products, technologies, and trends that can help achieve greater energy efficiency," said Clay Stevens, president of International Exposition Co., show producers, and managers.

In response to industry feedback, the AHR Expo has several special features planned for the 2007 event. A variety of association-sponsored educational sessions focusing on energy efficiency and building automation will be offered in addition to the ASHRAE conference program and short courses. AHR will also focus on green buildings featuring "green" exhibitors and new conference sessions by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC).

An expanded Building Automation & Control Showcase area will feature all of the latest building automation products and technologies. According to Stevens, more than 1,300 companies have already reserved over 300,000 net square feet of space for the 2007 event. The show will run Jan. 29-31 at the Dallas Convention Center.
