The AHR Expo (International Air-Conditioning, Heating, Refrigerating Exposition) today announced the winners of the 2024 AHR Expo Innovation Awards. Winners are chosen annually in ten industry categories, representing the most innovative products and technologies in the market.
“There’s no shortage of innovation in HVACR right now,” said Show Manager, Mark Stevens. “To be recognized as an award winner is a true honor and an indication that we as an industry are responding to real problems with creative solutions. The Innovation Awards aim to highlight this innovation trajectory and celebrate those that are pushing the bar.”
The Innovation Awards draw hundreds of manufacturers to enter breakthrough designs for new and never before seen solutions or improvements upon existing products and technologies. All entries are reviewed and selected by a panel of third-party judges made up of distinguished ASHRAE members. Evaluations are based on overall innovative design, creativity of the product or service offered, product or technology real-world application, as well as overall potential market impact.
“It’s encouraging to see so many entries and the growth the awards program brings year to year,” continued Stevens. “Manufacturers across the industry are responding with solutions for cost savings, energy savings, production efficiency and are filling performance gaps in product and technology. Congratulations to our 2024 winners, we look forward to supporting your journey of innovation in Chicago and beyond!”
In addition to celebrating innovation in HVACR, the Innovation Awards provide a means to strengthen the industry by allowing for the AHR Expo Workforce Development program, which aims to grow the industry through programming geared to inspire future members of the HVACR community. Funds collected from the entry fees are donated to programming at the student level, including show field trips, curated introductions to professionals and manufacturers, laboratory equipment and monetary donation to student programs in the hosting city.
