Courtesy: CFE MediaThe management of the 2015 AHR Expo has announced that three new all-time records have been established for the world's largest HVACR event. This year, more than 2,100 exhibiting companies occupied over 480,000 net sq ft of exhibit space, both new records for the 67th iconic event. The 2015 AHR Expo was at least 10% larger than the previous largest show and featured 8% more exhibitors than last year's event in New York City. Included in this record number of companies were 380 that had never exhibited at the show before.

Another new all-time record was the number of international exhibitors. This year, 592 international companies from over 30 countries exhibited in Chicago, representing a 16% increase over the previous record.

"Chicago is always where our largest shows take place," said Clay Stevens, president of International Exposition Co., which produces and manages the AHR Expo. "But we are thrilled at just how much bigger the 2015 show is." These record-breaking numbers also bode well for strong visitor attendance. Stevens said preregistration is running ahead of the last Chicago show in 2012, which was the attendance record at that time.
