WESTPORT, Connecticut…November 22, 2010 — A robust interactive program designed to help attendees to the world’s largest HVACR expo and conference maximize their time on and off the show floor is now available on the AHR Expo website at www.ahrexpo.com.

Exhibitors can also use ‘Virtual Show’ to request meetings with attendees, plan their schedules, and search other exhibitors they wish to visit.
“With nearly 1,900 exhibitors, more than 100 educational sessions, and a variety of special events taking place at the Show, we believe ‘Virtual Show‘ will be very valuable in helping both attendees and exhibitors plan their time more efficiently,” said Clay Stevens, President of International Exposition Company, which produces and manages the AHR EXPO.
