What's New at the AHR Expo

From the transition to low-global warming potential (GWP) refrigerants, to connectivity and automation, to skilled workers in the trades, exhibitors are preparing to showcase how their solutions can help.

The 2020 AHR Expo is expected to carry on the tradition of bigger and better. Scheduled for Feb. 3–5, the world’s largest HVAC&R marketplace is heading to Orlando, Fla. The upcoming Show is expected to sprawl about 500,000 ft2 (46 452 m2) at the Orange County Convention Center.

Throughout the exhibit hall, demonstrations show what products can do for the HVAC&R industry.

From boilers to ventilation systems to air-conditioning systems to building materials, new products are expected to fill the nooks and crannies of the Show floor. About 1,900 exhibitors are expected to showcase their latest innovations and products, so the Show floor’s walkways could rival the traffic patterns of the host city’s theme parks. Read more
