Chicago rolls out green carpet for AHR EXPO

Green is the theme for the 2009 AHR EXPO, held in Chicago Jan. 26-28, 2009.

09/15/2008


The latest in green products, technologies, trends and solutions will take center stage at the 2009 AHR EXPO , Jan. 26-28, 2009, at Chicago’s McCormick Place.

Building on the green focus of last year’s show in New York, the 2009 AHR EXPO will place a special emphasis on environmentally friendly and energy-efficient products and technologies. Green building, sustainable design, and renewable energy will be just a few of the topical subjects that will be covered at the 61st edition of the world’s largest HVAC/R exposition.

In addition to the hundreds of environmentally conscious products and technologies on display, several green seminars and sessions will also be offered to attendees, including:

informative classroom. The training trailer demonstrates new and innovative technologies being used to enhance a building’s energy efficiency while maintaining occupant health, safety, and comfort.



To recognize industry suppliers who offer products for a cleaner indoor environment, the AHR EXPO will once again present the IAQ designation. Companies that showcase products for indoor air quality improvement receive a special IAQ sign to display in their booths during the Show. Also, the most innovative green HVAC/R product will be selected from among exhibitor submissions as the winner of the prestigious 2009 AHR EXPO Innovation Award in the Green Building category.

Keeping with the green theme, the AHR EXPO will produce much of its promotional materials in digital format and make them available online, thus eliminating thousands of sheets of paper. Hosting the 2009 AHR EXPO at Chicago’s McCormick Place also reflects the Show’s green commitment. McCormick Place uses many recycled and environmentally friendly products. These include 100% recycled paper products in restroom facilities, cold beverage cups made of PLA (Poly Lactic Acid-resin derived from natural corn starches that are 100% annually renewable and fully compostable), flatware in dining areas made of compostable potato starch, and all packaged food boxes are 100% compostable, including the lunch box, napkins, cookie bag, flatware, sandwich, and salad containers.
