AHR Expo to be rescheduled from 31st January – 2nd February’2022 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The expo has been postponed once again due to the ongoing pandemic, the current state and local restrictions that prohibit mass gatherings over 50 people.
Mark Stevens, Show Manager, said: “We’ve examined every scenario and questioned every roadblock to see how we might hold an in-person event in 2021. Unfortunately, the pandemic continues to present unpredictable challenges and other variables that are beyond our control. The safety of all our participants — attendees, exhibitors, speakers, employees, venue staff and everyone involved at every level — continues to be our top priority. With these barriers, along with state and local restrictions due to COVID-19, we have unfortunately exhausted all efforts to bring the Show to Chicago in 2021.”
Show Management worked alongside show co-sponsors AHRI and ASHRAE, as well as an advisory council inclusive of Choose Chicago, representatives from McCormick Place and many vendor partners, to explore every possibility that could lead to hosting an in-person event that maintained the expectation for AHR Expo.
Stevens added: “We were hopeful that March would be a feasible solution, but there are too many obstacles that are beyond our control. We know how disappointing this news is for the HVACR industry and, we are disappointed too.”
