WESTPORT, Conn. — Submissions are open for the 2014 AHR Expo Innovation Awards competition. The Innovation Awards were created to recognize, encourage, and promote new product development in 10 HVACR categories. Product submissions from exhibitors are reviewed by a panel of judges selected by ASHRAE who evaluate the entries based on their innovative design, application, market impact, and value to the industry.

The award categories are: building automation, cooling, green building, heating, indoor air quality, refrigeration, software, tools and instruments, ventilation, and plumbing.

Winners of the Innovation Awards will be honored at a special ceremony during the 2014 AHR Expo, which will be held Jan. 21-23 in New York City. The winning exhibitors will receive special placards to place in their booths at the show, as well as an award to display at company headquarters. From the 10 winning entries, one entry will be selected as the 2014 AHR Expo Product of the Year.

Exhibitors entering the awards competition may submit one product per category by the Sept. 9, 2013 deadline. For a copy of the entry form, which includes entry criteria and submission information, go to AHR Expo Innovation Awards entry form.
