Last month’s blog highlighted the importance of ongoing education and the wealth of resources available at the AHR Expo from industry associations, trade publications and exhibiting manufacturers. In this month’s blog, I thought it would be helpful to highlight a few of the various educational opportunities that may be of special interest to contractors attending AHR Expo, both in the classroom and on the Show floor.
Many of these sessions are free-of-charge to all visitors.

These are just a few of the many educational sessions available to contractors at AHR Expo.
However, the biggest learning opportunity is right on the Exhibit Floor. With more than 1,900 exhibitors, you can get hands-on with the latest equipment and systems, talk to product experts about your most demanding challenges, see product demonstrations of tools, instruments and other labor-saving devices, and test-drive the latest contractor software.
Want to learn more about all these opportunities? Check out the Visitors section of the AHR EXPO website.
We look forward to seeing you in New York this January.
