The management teams of AHR, ASHRAE and AHRI have issued the following letter and downloadable tip sheet.
Dear HVACR Community,
Just like all of you, we are watching, listening, and waiting to figure out how to navigate the COVID-19 crisis happening across the globe right now. First and foremost, we want to take pause and recognize the important role HVAC plays in all of this -- including the systems that support healthy indoor environments, the engineers and designers who challenge current methods, the supply chain partners who keep the workflow intact, and the technicians who continue to show up for customers needing support even during unsettling times. Thank you for your contributions to our society.
The AHR Expo has always been a gathering place for HVACR professionals to understand the latest developments in the industry, and we work hard each year to put together an experience that benefits your personal career and business relationships. As such, we would like to extend these efforts to support those in our community who remain out in the field while we navigate a rapidly changing situation.
Technicians, distributors, owners, contractors, and anyone else continuing to show up for service calls, deliveries, and etc., we’ve put together a list of tips surveyed from our industry colleagues directing employees for safety protocol. You can download this tip sheet here. Please, hang this in your offices, your service vehicles or anywhere else where a detailed checklist may help you or your employees keep these important safety practices top of mind in the coming weeks.
After much thought and consideration, we have decided to keep sharing positive stories from the recent 2020 AHR Expo in Orlando, as well as new information as it develops regarding the 2021 AHR Expo in Chicago. It’s our hope that maintaining a balance of positive information, and the notion of moving forward and looking ahead to the 2021 event might serve as a reminder that these difficult times won’t last forever.
With that in mind, we have perhaps never before looked more forward to having you join us on the Show floor than we do today. Here’s to AHR Expo 2021 in Chicago - and putting these difficult days behind us! Stay safe and smart and let’s celebrate this industry together soon.We’re with you,
The AHR Expo Management Team
