According to AHR show management, the 2004 AHR Expo, Jan. 26 to 28, in Anaheim, CA, U.S., is already larger than any previous West Coast AHR Expo, with 310,000 net sq ft sold and more than 1,400 exhibiting companies signed up. The amount of exhibit space reserved to date in Anaheim exceeds the 301,000 net sq ft of exhibits at the last West Coast AHR Expo (1998, in San Francisco, CA, U.S.).
The 2004 event is continuing the recent trend toward globalization. During the past several years, the number of exhibitors headquartered outside of the U.S. has been on the increase. Presently, some 216 international exhibiting companies from 33 countries have signed up to display hundreds of new products. Solid representation of companies from around the globe includes more than 40 companies from Europe and three dozen from Pacific Rim countries, with the majority of international support coming from more than 105 Canadian companies.
Highlights of the AHR Expo include two special show floor pavilions (Building, Automation, and Control and a Software Center) that will encourage attendees to participate in hands-on demonstrations and view, test, and compare new technologies. In addition to the pavilions, many of the AHR Expo's Endorsing Associations will conduct free educational sessions. These associations will present information ranging from principles of business management to a variety of current technical developments. Complimentary building automation sessions will also explore four areas: marketing convergence, online capabilities, an XML update, and wireless controls.
The Expo is co-sponsored by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) and the Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration Institute (ARI). ASHRAE's Winter meeting will be held concurrently with the Expo.
