A much-anticipated in-person return as the show heads to Vegas after a forced cancellation in 2021, the AHR Expo is back in action January 31 – February 2, 2022, poised to host the industry’s major gathering following Covid-19 shutdowns.
Registration is free and attendees are encouraged to register early. Show management is elated to sound the horn, “We’re back!” “We are honoured to welcome the HVACR community back for the first large-scale, in-person industry event co-sponsored by ASHRAE,” said Mark Stevens, manager of AHR Expo. “It’s been a long road and we are ready to reignite the momentum that comes from collaborating at a live event. We understand the disappointment in last year’s forced cancellation, and we are thrilled to once again host the Show that our industry partners value so much. This year AHR Expo will welcome both new and long-time attendees to a show the industry has anticipated for nearly two years. We’re encouraged by the growing energy we are seeing in our metrics. Show hotels in particular are exciting to watch as rooms fill up for Vegas faster than usual by this time of year,” continued Stevens.
The Orlando show delivered so much energy for the future of HVACR and just a few weeks following we watched as the world paused. HVACR became a hot topic overnight given the correlation between indoor environments and health. “For the industry, this is something we have been more deeply discussing in recent years, but when the pandemic fully emerged and mitigation strategy discussions began it was all eyes on HVAC,” Stevens adds.
All eyes have been on HVACR since the onset of the pandemic. HVACR professionals have remained on the front lines as a critical factor in the fight to contain Covid-19. In recent years the show has featured manufacturers and educators who speak on the importance of well-managed indoor environments as a key component in community health. “The pandemic in some ways has pushed us ahead in terms of global acceptance of just how vital this industry is to the world,” said Stevens. “Every country, industry, and news outlet is talking about HVACR. AHR Expo has served as a meeting place to dig down deep and share new ideas and innovation for nearly a century, but perhaps now more than ever this kind of face-to-face connection and business collaboration is critical.”
Prior to Covid-19, HVAC was already experiencing a boom driven by increasing customer demand to interact with the built environment, as well as a push for energy efficiency, sustainability, IoT and other technology innovations. As discussions such as job force recruitment efforts and new and sustainable ways to bring comfort heating and cooling across the globe continue, professionals are now also faced with new considerations for HVACR’s potential to support mitigation.
AHR Expo is working in conjunction with the Las Vegas Convention Centre (LVCC) to maintain safety as the highest priority for attendees. This year’s Show will follow many large-scale events from other industries that have successfully welcomed guests back to Vegas.
The AHR Expo is considered the world’s premier HVACR event, attracting the most comprehensive gathering of industry professionals from around the globe each year. The show provides a unique forum where manufacturers of all sizes and specialties, whether a major industry brand or innovative start-up, can come together to share ideas and showcase the future of HVACR technology under one roof. Since 1930, the AHR Expo has remained the industry’s best place for OEMs, engineers, contractors, facility operators, architects, educators, and other industry professionals to explore the latest trends and applications and to cultivate mutually beneficial business relationships.
