The AHR Expo (International Air-Conditioning, Heating, Refrigerating Exposition) has announced the full schedule for the 2023 AHR Expo Education Program. This year’s program will feature more than 200 free seminars, including a robust panel series, new product and technology presentations, professional certifications, and continuing education courses. Additionally, in response to the industry’s call for more training via shared knowledge and opportunities for open discussion, the program has been extended to include Wednesday sessions.
“The Education Program has grown tremendously in recent years,” said Show Manager Mark Stevens. “The HVACR industry is changing and growing quickly and in ways that are new to us all. We’re talking about training a new workforce to replenish a wave of retirement while simultaneously taking on initiatives relating to environmental efficiency, indoor air quality, automation, cybersecurity, supply chain disruptions, new business practices, etc.—there is no shortage of necessary discussions.”
The AHR Expo aims to complement the attendee experience on the show floor with application knowledge and technology found in manufacturers’ booths. Education sessions provide an understanding of real-world application and practice in areas of niche discipline, as well as broader discussion topics relating to trends happening currently and on the horizon within the industry.
“Our manufacturers pack the hall with everything new,” continued Stevens. “All the latest products and technologies—many that are being introduced to the public for the first time—can be seen in the exhibits on the show floor. Experts from every industry sector build on this experience in the Education Program through their shared knowledge aimed at supporting professional career development, training, and updated industry information.”
In 2022, AHR Expo debuted a panel series to tackle some of the industry’s larger discussions with the goal of providing open conversation among professionals across multiple job roles. This year, the panel series will return with an even more robust line-up of topics aimed to open the communication pipeline to many of HVAC’s current pain points and opportunities, as well as forecast what is coming down the line. Attendees can expect a variety of topics in sessions and are encouraged to explore the full program on the website.
