The Whalen Co. hosted an event for its sales representatives, customers, and media Sunday evening at the Hard Rock Café Orlando at the Universal CityWalk in Orlando, Florida. More than 200 individuals registered for the event, which was held in the Roots of Rock room of the iconic restaurant and featured food, drinks, and (of course) rock and roll.
More than 300 people got a first-hand look at Modine Mfg. Co.’s new Innovation Tour truck during its AHR Expo cocktail reception at Icebar Orlando on Sunday. A few attendees even braved the balmy 18°F Icebar, donning thermal jackets and gloves, before heading inside a scene straight out of Disney’s, “Frozen.”
One way to find out what’s new in the HVACR industry is to visit the AHR Expo’s New Product and Technology Theater, which will feature dozens of exhibitors offering brief presentations about their new products. In addition, nearly 50 free seminars will be offered.
Winners will be recognized in a formal ceremony at the expo

Each year the AHR Expo gives back to the local community by donating the sum of Innovation Award entry fees to an organization in the region where the show is being held. This year, the Jacksonville Police Athletic League (PAL), was selected as the beneficiary.
The annual awards competition honors the most inventive and original products, systems, and technologies showcased at each year’s AHR Expo in 10 categories. The winning products are selected from numerous entries by a panel of judges consisting of ASHRAE members who evaluated the products based on innovation, application, value to the user, and market impact.
The AHR Expo, which began more than 85 years ago, is held annually in key markets and major cities across the U.S., hosting close to 2,000 exhibitors and crowds of more than 60,000 industry professionals. The event provides a unique forum for the HVACR community to come together and share new products, technologies, and ideas.
With eight tracks, 100 sessions, and more than 300 speakers, the technical program at ASHRAE’s 2016 Winter Conference is bound to impress attending engineers, contractors, manufacturers, and building professionals. The technical program will have a fresh feel with new tracks focused on design-build practices, cutting-edge technologies, and residential systems.
