CHICAGO — The NFL held the Super Bowl in Minneapolis recently, and 67,612 people were in attendance. Of course, that came in second to the HVACR Super Bowl, otherwise known as the AHR Expo, which saw a total attendance of more than 72,000.

“The excitement generated by this year’s record crowds of attendees and exhibitors was palpable from the show floor to the training sessions,” said Clay Stevens, manager of the AHR Expo. “Whether you are designing a building’s HVACR system from the ground up or want to make your existing spaces warmer, cooler, quieter, smarter, safer, or more comfortable and efficient, the AHR Expo is the only place where you can see and experience it all, learn from the industry’s top experts, and stay at the forefront of innovation.”

Total attendance was just one of many records broken by the AHR Expo this year. It also set the highs in number of exhibitors, square feet of exhibit space, registered visitors, total visitor attendance, and countries represented.

“AHR has been pivotal for our company,” said Tony Petrosian, marketing director for Rossi Hardware. “It’s where we began when we launched, and we continue to exhibit here every year.”

Exhibit space for next year’s show in Atlanta is already sold out.
