Where In The World Is The 2021 AHR Expo?

From AHR Today, 2020

ORLANDO—The AHR Expo returns to Chicago next year. The last Show held in the Windy City was a record breaker.

Chicago last saw the world’s largest HVAC&R marketplace in 2018. That Show was the largest Show to date—in more than one way.

The 2018 Show at Chicago’s McCormick Place spanned 530,010 ft2 (49 240 m2), which was 29,851 ft2 (2773 m2) more than the previous record holder—the 2017 Show in Las Vegas.

The 2018 Show also holds the record for number of exhibiting companies. Coming in at 2,155 exhibitors in 2018, there were 37 more exhibitors at that Show compared to the previous record holder—the 2015 Show, also in Chicago.

The third broken record was for number of international exhibitors. About 30.6% of 2018’s exhibitors were international exhibitors. A total of 660 international exhibitors hailed from 34 countries that year.

The 2021 Show is scheduled from January 25–27.
