CHICAGO - The International Exposition Co. (IEC) has announced that Dallas and New York have been selected as the host cities for AHR Expo 2007 and 2008, respectively. According to IEC, these venues were selected in collaboration with the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating & Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) and the Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration Institute (ARI) on the basis of their superior accessibility to exhibitors and attendees; size of the regional, industrial, residential, and commercial markets; and concentration of HVACR professionals and suppliers.

"As we considered prospective cities for the AHR Expo 2007 and 2008, it became very clear to us that New York and Dallas were excellent venues for our exhibitors and attendees," said Clay Stevens, president of IEC. "Both New York and Dallas have been hosts to very successful AHR Expos in the past, but it has been several years since we were in either city."

Show organizers have chosen the Dallas Convention Center as the site for AHR Expo 2007, to be held January 29-31. The last AHR Expo in Dallas was held in 2000 and attracted more than 45,000 HVACR professionals (including 25,000 plus attendees) and over 1,000 exhibiting companies. With its capital development plan slated for completion in 2005, DFW International Airport traffic capacity will double, making Dallas an even more accessible venue for Expo participants, say the organizers.

At the center of the largest market for HVACR products in North America, New York is expected to attract a large number of attendees and exhibitors to the Javits Convention Center, from January 22-24, 2008. This will mark the first time the AHR Expo has returned to New York since 1991. With its easy accessibility for domestic and international travelers and wide variety of unique entertainment and attractions, shows held in New York often set new attendance records, show organizers say.

"We expect outstanding attendance for AHR Expo 2008 in New York," said Stevens. "With more than 800,000 gross square feet of exhibit space available, the Javits Convention Center is an extremely attractive choice for AHR Expo in the Northeast, an area that the majority of previous exhibitors have identified as their strongest market."
