2018 AHR Expo Blows Into Chicago this Month

AHR Expo 2018 in Chicago, Illinois

Throngs of contractors, engineers, manufacturers, OEMs, distributors, and students will descend upon McCormick Place in Chicago from January 22 to 24 to attend the world’s largest HVAC Industry event. This is the only event where the entire industry meets, networks, and sees — first hand — the latest innovation in products and equipment. NCI/NBC will be there as well. Will you?

The AHR Expo is one of the HVAC Industry’s oldest and largest events. This year the show will be held in Chicago, at McCormick Place from January 22-24th.

Since 1930, the Show has provided a forum for the entire HVACR industry, including original equipment manufacturers; engineers; contractors; distributors; commercial, industrial and institutional facility operators; and educators to come together to discover the latest products, learn about new technologies, and develop mutually beneficial business relationships.

Co-sponsored by ASHRAE and AHRI, this event draws nearly 65,000 attendees and 2,000 exhibitors. With more than 22% of those attendees being contractors, chances are if you haven’t attended, you probably know someone who has.

Because there are so many exhibitors, there will be a tremendous number of products on display, making this event one of the best places to discover the latest equipment, systems, and technologies across every facet of the industry.

So, you will have the opportunity to see live demos and experience products hands-on to understand and compare the different solutions available. Moreover, contractors who attend often will get special pricing opportunities only available at the Show.

Furthermore, for the Performance-Based Contracting™ part of the HVAC Industry, National Comfort Institute, Inc. (NCI) and it’s subsidiary, National Balancing Council (NBC) will be once again exhibiting. The organization is once again an AHR Expo endorsing sponsor. Visit them in Booth 7478.
