WESTPORT, Conn. - Show management for the International Air-Conditioning, Heating Refrigerating Exposition (AHR Expo) announced that it has now reserved the entire Dallas Convention Center for the 2007 AHR Expo, putting it on track to become the biggest show held in the Southwest for the HVACR industry.

According to Clay Stevens, president of International Exposition Company (IEC), show producers and managers, more than 1,200 companies have already reserved the space allocated for the 2007 event with almost a year still remaining until the show. Consequently, IEC has now expanded the space to 350,000 square feet to accommodate the additional exhibitor demand.

The 2007 show, to be held January 29 through January 31, has already exceeded the amount of exhibit space occupied at the last Dallas show held in 2000. The 2000 show, also held at the Dallas Convention Center, had a net square footage of 315,021, attracted more than 45,000 HVACR professionals (including over 25,000 attendees), and more than 1,000 exhibiting companies.
