The Inside Story

Jerry Lawson headshotThe annual AHR Expo is the single best opportunity we in the HVAC industry have to see, touch and experience the equipment and programs vital to our success in our business.

The Expo started as the ASHRAE show. It has grown and continues to grow. The products we sell and service are evolving and improving. We need this annual show to keep us current on what to expect.

I know that it is hard for contractors and dealers to attend events in far away cities. This is exactly why the AHR moves from Chicago to Orlando to Atlanta, Las Vegas and other major cities. It is usually held at the end of January.

Your HVAC Insider has been a part of this show since 1992. We have booth #C7815 where you can pick up current copies of our 15 newspapers and visit with reporters to tell your story. We will be taking your photos and publishing your images nationwide. You can prove to the world that you were there in Atlanta, Georgia for the year’s greatest HVAC show.

Don’t Blink

The years have flown by since I opened my first trade newspaper in Georgia back in 1969. Forty-nine years have flown by since I quit working for corporate America and struck out on my own. It has been an exciting ride. In 2019 we will celebrate 50 years of service to the durable goods inductry.

Thanks for your support and readership.
