Since AHR Expo was last held in Dallas, Texas in 2000, the world’s largest HVAC/R event has grown significantly and added a major international presence. Featuring more than 1,600 exhibiting companies from 35 countries, including 320 international exhibitors and nine new International Pavilions, the 2007 AHR Expo will be the Southwest’s largest HVAC/R Exposition ever.
The 77th Annual event is expected to attract more than 45,000 HVAC/R professionals (including over 25,000 visitors) from over 100 countries who will be convening at the Dallas Convention Center on January 29th through 31st to see all the latest products and technologies from the world’s leading manufacturers and suppliers. Based on these preliminary numbers, the 2007 AHR Expo will have at least 300 more exhibiting companies representing a 25% increase over the 2000 Dallas Show.
Nine New International Pavilions
In addition to doubling the number of international exhibitors, the 2007 AHR Expo will host nine new International Pavilions including six from China and individual Pavilions from Brazil, Korea and Thailand. These new International Pavilions will feature many products and technologies for various segments of the HVAC/R marketplace that can’t be seen at any other North American event. Show management believes this dramatic increase in international participation is a reflection of the rapid globalization of the marketplace.
Visitors to 2007 AHR Expo will also experience several new Show features that have been added since the 2000 event including:
* New Product Technology Theater
* A Building Automation & Control Showcase
* An expanded Software Center
* Over 30 Educational Sessions and Workshops presented by AHR Expo and it’s Endorsing Associations
* Over 30 Technical Sessions and Short Courses presented by ASHRAE, many of the ASHRAE sessions include CEU’s
* NATE and CxA certification testing

“2007 AHR Expo attendees will see a significantly expanded and enhanced show compared to the last Dallas event,” said Clay Stevens, President of IEC, Show Producers and Managers. “They will see new companies, new products, new technologies and benefit from a variety of expanded educational offerings.”
