Why Exhibit at AHR
Besides being the largest HVACR expo, presenting boundless opportunities to showcase new products and technology among many other benefits, the AHR Expo is focused on the important aspects of the industry. The show is also co-sponsored by the ASHRAE and AHRI, which are well-respected industry organizations. Industry professionals have the ability to get hands-on experience with new technologies and products at the show. The ability to see new products in person and learn about their value from the professionals that made them presents a unique opportunity that brochures and catalogs just can’t provide. Ultimately, exhibiting at the AHR Expo could give your business the opportunity to procure new products, establish new customers, and increase sales.
It’s also important to note that AHR also keeps meticulous records of attendance demographics, so you can be sure when exhibiting that you will be reaching the appropriate prospect. For example, the 2019 show had nearly 5,000 international visitors, 10,548 members of senior management, and a significant number of distributors. The full demographic records break down the type of business, geographic breakdown, and job function.
The AHR Expo offers a multitude of marketing tools available to exhibitors, many of which are free, such as a custom promotional video.
