The last time the Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration (AHR) Expo took place here in 2008, it established a then all-time attendance record of more than 39,000 visitors with over 6,400 buyers coming from 138 countries. Show management is optimistic that the attendance record could be broken again this year.
