The 2014 AHR Expo in New York City on January 21-23, is shaping up to be the largest HVAC/R exposition ever held in the northeast. More than 1800 exhibiting companies have reserved 387 000 square feet of booth space, exceeding the record-breaking exhibit space reserved for the 2008 AHR Expo in New York City by nearly six per cent. According to Clay Stevens, president of International Exposition Company, which produces and manages the AHR Expo, 2014 attendee pre-registration numbers and hotel room reservations are both running significantly ahead of the 2008 AHR Expo at the same point in time before the show. The 2008 AHR Expo attracted nearly 58 000 total visitors, including a record-breaking 39 000 attendees from over 138 countries. The 2014 AHR Expo is co-sponsored by ASHRAE and AHRI. The Heating, Refrigeration and Air-Conditioning Institute of Canada (HRAI) is an honorary sponsor.
