ATLANTA — The AHR Expo returned to Atlanta for the first time since 2001 for its 2019 show at the Georgia World Congress Center. HVACR accounts for billions of dollars in revenue and is a key economic driver for the state of Georgia, with U.S. Department of Labor projections indicating it will see nearly 20 percent growth in the coming years. With this booming HVACR market, the region is a top location to host the AHR Expo.
“We are thrilled to be back in Atlanta for the first time in  years,” said Clay Stevens, show manager of AHR Expo. “Atlanta, particularly the Georgia World Congress Center, is a hub for some of the country’s largest trade shows — a list that, for 2019, includes AHR. We are excited to be back in this region and to invite professionals from all over the world to experience its energy and pace.”
The AHR Expo brings more than 60,000 attendees an exclusive opportunity to be at the forefront of experiencing and adopting the latest industry applications and products, as well as the chance to learn about emerging technologies before they are mainstream. Over 2,100 companies exhibit from 35 represented countries, making the three-day show an opportunity to network with enough potential business partners to build out an entire year’s business prospects.
“We receive consistent feedback at each show that AHR is the place for best-in-class education of industry trends and practices, as well as a source for professionals to network with other people in the business of all titles and trades,” Stevens said. “Every year we see returning exhibitors and attendees who have been with us for years, as well as companies launching into business. It’s an exciting place to convene with the best in practice, and it really gives an accurate snapshot of what’s going on in the industry.”
