AHR Orlando matches previous best shows

AHR-Orlando-2016USA: Bad weather on the eastern seaboard had little effect on attendance at this year’s AHR Expo, which matched previous shows in Chicago and New York.

Preliminary attendance figures released by the organiser record 42,672 visitors over the three-day event held last month at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. Add on over 18,000 exhibitor personnel and the total was 60,926 registered attendees.

This was achieved despite the havoc caused by winter storm Jonas, which led to flight cancellations across the country and travel bans in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions. The 2016 AHR Expo was successful in welcoming tens of thousands of contractors and engineers, OEMs, distributors and plant managers from all facets of the global heating, ventilating, air conditioning and refrigeration industry.

In total, 469,540ft² of exhibit space was occupied by 2,063 exhibitors, 334 of them being first-time exhibitors. A notable 561 were international exhibitors and there were 9,410 international visitors.

Next year’s AHR Expo, co-sponsored by ASHRAE and AHRI, will be held in Las Vegas from January 30 to February 1, 2017.  For additional information, visit
