Last week, we shared the release containing all the awesome details for the upcoming – 2018 AHR Expo. If that wasn’t enough to get you pumped for the show… how about the “Three Reasons You Can’t Miss the 2018 AHR Expo”.
The 2018 AHR Expo will be held Jan. 22-24, 2018 at McCormick Place in Chicago
As a contractor in the HVACR industry, there’s no doubt you’ve heard of the AHR Expo, the world’s largest industry event that draws in upwards of 65,000 attendees and 2,000 exhibitors. With over 22% of the attendees being contractors, chances are if you haven’t attended, you probably know someone who has. But why is the Show so big? Put simply, it’s the only event of its kind.
There are plenty of reasons why you should attend the Show in January, but we’ve narrowed it down to the three biggest. And don’t just take our word for it – we asked hundreds of contractors why they’ve attended the AHR Expo. Here’s why you can’t miss the 2018 AHR Expo:
Be the First to See New Technology and Products – and Get Exclusive Buying Opportunities
With thousands of products on display, the AHR Expo is the best place to discover the latest equipment, systems and technologies across every facet of the industry, from complete systems engineered for large commercial and industrial buildings to labor-saving tools and profit-generating services for residential contractors. You will have the opportunity to see live demos and experience products hands-on to understand and compare the different solutions available and help inform major purchasing decisions. And, attending can help with those investments: contractors that attend often will get special pricing opportunities only available at the Show.
“I attend the AHR Expo because of all of the new products, tools, and labor-saving devices and techniques on display. Not to mention the live demos. There’s nothing better than actually touching and getting a feel for tools and products before we spend tens of thousands or more,” said Will Schott, service manager for FAST of Florida.
The Show also provides a unique opportunity for attendees to meet with the product experts who designed and/or manufactured much of the equipment on display, and to ask questions and find ways to customize products to meet their needs and solve their particular challenges. This provides a one-on-one experience that simply cannot be replicated on the internet or over the phone.
Andy Mickelson, president of Mickelson Plumbing, said the Show allows him to “see the latest and greatest products available, in addition to being able to talk directly to manufacturer engineers and reps about products on the Show floor.”
Education, Certifications Help You Stay Ahead of the Competition
The AHR Expo’s free seminar program puts the product experts front and center with more than 60 sessions during the Show, offering practical solutions to real challenges that contractors face every day.
