WESTPORT, Conn. — Show management has announced that the 2014 International Air-Conditioning, Heating, Refrigerating Exposition (AHR Expo) in New York City, scheduled for Jan. 21-23, will be the largest HVACR exposition ever held in the Northeast.

More than 1,800 exhibiting companies have reserved 387,000 square feet of booth space, exceeding the record-breaking exhibit space reserved for the 2008 AHR Expo in New York City by nearly 6 percent. According to Clay Stevens, president of International Exposition Co., which produces and manages the AHR Expo, these early statistics bode well for another successful event.

“The 2008 Show in New York set several Northeast records and an all-time AHR Expo attendance record, which was subsequently narrowly surpassed by the 2012 Show in Chicago,” Stevens said. “Based on the record amount of exhibit space already reserved, the attendee pre-registration numbers, and the total hotel rooms booked, we could be on track for another record-breaking event.”

Stevens said 2014 attendee pre-registration numbers and hotel room reservations are both running significantly ahead of the 2008 AHR Expo at the same point in time before the show. The 2008 AHR Expo attracted nearly 58,000 total visitors, including a record-breaking 39,000 attendees from over 138 countries.
