The International Air-Conditioning, Heating and Refrigerating Exposition took place from the 26th till the 28th of January

The world’s largest exhibition in this field won’t break any records this year, even though the organizers announced over 1,850 exhibitors and more than 50,000 expected visitors.
The worldwide crisis had some effects on the EXPO as well, not all the exhibition space was sold out and as you could tell from some free spaces between booths, some exhibitors cancelled their booth at the last minute.

Among the exhibitors were also two Austrian companies, both not first-time AHR EXPO attendees. E+E Elektronik is specialized in humidity / temperature transmitters, E+E pays special attention to the training of their employees. So not only the development of new technologies is assured, but also the best maintenance of their products once in use by the consumers.

LOYTEC produces equipment and software for the surveillance of houses. Because of the internet connection it is possible to control your home worldwide via cameras and other gadgets. But increasing the safety level is not enough; using LOYTEC products also helps the consumer to start saving energy and decrease costs.
Environmental issues and sustainability were the all-dominant themes of the AHR EXPO 2009, of course starting with “greener”, ecologically sensitive products, but also handouts and give-aways were no longer packed in plastic bags, but in paper or cloth bags.

To boost the consumer interest in certain products, many of the manufacturers focused the design and handling on their entertainment electronics products. So you can now find thermostats with a touch screen and an internet connection, direct weather forecasts on the display, branded alerts and the possibility of having worldwide access to the temperature regulation of your home. So you now have many tools you are used to from your iPhone and Blackberry also available on your technical supply at home.

The next AHR EXPO will take place in Orlando, Florida, January 25 th to 27 th, 2010.
