As of Aug. 27, the 2021 AHR Expo is scheduled to take place Jan. 25-27 at McCormick Place in Chicago. In an effort to explore all options, the expo recently conducted a survey among exhibitors, as well as its co-sponsoring groups, regarding the possibility of rescheduling the in-person event for March 15-17, 2021.
"We remain dedicated to the safety and welfare of all our guests and continue to examine current events and how they may impact the 2021 AHR Expo," representatives of the AHR Expo stated on www.ahrexpo.com. "Given the uncertainty of the pandemic in combination with changing restrictions by the State of Illinois and the City of Chicago, we feel that changing the dates to provide an additional seven weeks to plan and prepare may be a wise decision.
"HVAC&R continues to play a vital role in the management of COVID-19 and the effects of this global pandemic. We understand the importance of meeting together, in person, to learn and share ideas of how we can mitigate the current landscape and threats of the future. We are committed to supporting each member of our industry as we shift into a post-pandemic world."
