The topics that the survey respondents reported as most important to address at the 2007 show include the following in order of interest:
"Given the high cost of fuel and the ongoing desire for more healthy living environments, there is a critical need to learn more about the products, technologies, and trends that can help achieve greater energy efficiency," said Clay Stevens, president of International Exposition Co., producer and manager of the show. "These surveys help us plan ways to better meet our exhibitor and attendees' needs."
In response to industry feedback, AHR Expo has introduced several new show features and enhancements over the years ranging from specially-focused educational sessions to dedicated pavilions. Some special features planned for the 2007 event include:
According to the 2006 AHR Expo Visitor Survey, 99 percent of visitors attended the show because they felt finding new products was "important." Ninety-one percent of visitors reported they found products or information at the show that they could use to improve their business. More than 40 percent spent more than two days at the show to find out about new products and attend educational sessions.
"AHR Expo is the only event in the world where HVACR professionals can see such a wide selection of new products and technologies and choose from so many educational opportunities," Stevens said.
According to Stevens, more than 1,300 companies have already reserved over 300,000 net square feet of space for the 2007 event with six months still remaining until the show. The 2007 show will run January 29-31 at the Dallas Convention Center.
