Trends Report: Looking Ahead to 2024

WESTPORT, Conn.—The 2024 AHR Expo will be held at the Marriot Marquis in Chicago, January 22–24.

HVACR remains one of the most unique industries as it is comprised of professionals from many different sectors and career disciplines. Collectively we all address the goals, however, day-to-day work practices often look very different. It is with this in mind that we created the Industry Trend Report – to provide a thoughtful connection point for our audiences with the goal of identifying the state of the industry ahead of the show. Our endorsing associations contribute a thorough representation of the varying roles that make up the full industry. This allows us to formulate discussion points that can be shared with peers when we gather face to face. We are appreciative of those who have taken time to participate in this report as we believe it lends tremendous value in understanding the challenges and opportunities within the industry from every point of view. As we’ve come to realize, our goals, even when executed differently, must be in sync to further the growth and success of this industry, a message that resonates wider with each passing year.
