Here we are at the 2010 AHR Expo and The NEWS staff is combing the aisles to find new products and new ideas for the coming heating and cooling seasons. Beyond the buzz of 1,800 companies, it is estimated that over 35,000 HVACR professionals will attend this year’s show.

Green being a continuing trend, new and improved technologies stemming from the green movement are finding more room on the convention center floor, especially from the building automation and controls sector. Its latest products are featured in a new showcase located in the 1,000 through 1,300 aisles.

Covering this vast show and all it has to offer is more than snapping a few photos and writing a paragraph or two. The NEWS staff has mapped out a full information gathering assault to assemble comprehensive show information presented in cutting-edge publishing vehicles.

Watch our specially created microsite www.achrnews.com/AHR_Expo for daily updates, photos, and special content created live from the show floor during the convention.

Also keep an eye out for the upcoming post-show issue on Feb. 15. In it will be a wide-ranging new product roundup, and a special show edition of the Newsline and FYI sections.
