2013 AHR Expo in Dallas

The 2013 AHR Expo will be returning to the Dallas Convention Center for the first time since 2007.

AHR Expo 2013Coming off the largest show in its 83-year history, AHR Expo will return to the site of its largest Southwest event on January 28-30, 2013, at the Dallas Convention Center.

The 2007 AHR Expo in Dallas occupied the entire convention center and attracted more than 47,000 total attendees, including over 28,000 visitors, from around the world to see the latest products and innovations on display from nearly 1,800 exhibitors. However, based on an improving economy and new HVACR innovations and technologies, the 2013 event could surpass the 2007 Show.

“The last three Shows have all established new records for their regions of the country,” said Clay Stevens, President of International Exposition Company, which produces and manages the AHR Expo. Stevens pointed out that the 2011 Las Vegas AHR Expo and 2010 Orlando event both set new records for number of registered visitors for Western and Southeastern Shows, respectively. The 2012 Chicago Show set all-time records for visitor registration and square footage.

“We believe the 2013 Dallas event will also benefit from an improving economy and HVACR industry advancements,” Stevens predicted. Other indications that the 2013 AHR Expo Dallas Show will be a strong event are:

  • There are thousands of HVACR engineers and contractors within a 300 mile radius 
  • The Dallas ASHRAE chapter is one of the largest in the country
  • Dallas/Ft. Worth is home to two-dozen Fortune 500 companies
  • According to the Dallas Morning News, Dallas leaders are bullish on the local economy
  • Dallas’ projected economic growth rate will continue to outpace the U.S. rate.

The 2013 AHR Expo is endorsed by the leading HVACR industry associations and is co-sponsored by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) and the Air-Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI). The Heating, Refrigeration and Air-Conditioning Institute of Canada (HRAI) is an honorary sponsor. ASHRAE's Winter Conference is held concurrently with the AHR Expo each year.
