Day 1 of 2018 AHR Expo: Setting Records

The 2018 AHR Expo breaks attendance records as Contracting Business visits many leading manufacturers.

Well, they did it again. The planning team for the annual Air Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration Exposition has organized a show for 2018 that will break some meaningful attendance records.

According to the Show Daily, the official publication of the AHR Expo, the Show is expected to see a six percent increase in attendance over last year's record-breaking event held in Las Vegas.

Exhibitors have again shown an increase, with more than 2,150 vendors providing industry professionals a look at their newest and best HVAC and refrigeration products. Total exhibit space will be more than 530,000 square feet. Clay Stevens, president, International Exposition Company, said this year's event might very well beat the 2017 attendance number of about 70,000. That number has not been fully tabulated.

Contracting Business was there, to see many of the newest product innovations from the leading HVACR product manufacturers serving North America.
