With some 8 months still remaining before AHR Expo 2005 in Orlando, FL, U.S., to be held February 7-9, the show is already on pace to become one of the largest events in the 75-year history of the exposition.

According to show management, 1,400 companies have already reserved 321,000-sq-ft of exhibit space. The early numbers indicate it should become the fourth-largest event of all time and bigger than last year's record-breaking West Coast show in Anaheim, CA, U.S.

The 2004 Anaheim show finished with 324,590-sq-ft of exhibit space, but as of May 1, 2003, it had only 239,000 sq ft as compared to 321,000 sq ft for Orlando at the same time this year. The 2005 Orlando show currently has more than 80 percent of the available exhibit space reserved.

Clay Stevens, president of International Exposition Company, said if the current rate of booth sales continues, the 2005 event will easily surpass both Anaheim in 2004 and the 1995 Chicago show, which boasted 336,326 sq ft.

"We are very excited about this overwhelming response from the industry so far in advance of the event," Mr. Stevens said. "This is especially gratifying since this is the first time AHR Expo has been held in Florida."

Mr. Stevens said he believes there are several reasons for the enthusiastic early response to the 2005 show. "The improving economy is certainly a key factor. In addition, we believe that an increasing number of companies are confident that they will receive a good ROI participating in the world's leading HVAC/R event."

He also attributed the response to the fact that the Show will be in Orlando for the first time and will attract many new visitors from the Southeast, besides strong national and international attendance.
