ASHRAE Announces Cancellation of 2021 AHR Expo

ASHRAE has announced the 2021 AHR Expo originally scheduled to be held Jan. 25-27, has been cancelled. Although ASHRAE worked alongside AHRI and show management to explore every possibility that could lead to hosting an in-person event, unfortunately, the pandemic continues to present challenges and unpredictable variables.

The 2021 ASHRAE Winter Virtual Conference, which will include a mixture of live, pre-recorded and on-demand sessions, will take place Feb. 9-11, 2021.

ASHRAE committee, council and board meetings will take place virtually in January. More information and details will be available in the coming weeks.

“Current health rules regarding social distancing and large gatherings makes it impossible for us to provide the experience that our attendees expect at the AHR Expo,” said ASHRAE Executive Vice President Jeff Littleton. “As leaders in the built environment, we have a responsibility to protect health and well-being of attendees, exhibitors and staff. While we could not find a path forward to host the expo in 2021, we anticipate an even greater show in 2022 in Las Vegas.”

Additional information about the 2021 ASHRAE Winter Virtual Conference and committee meetings, including registration details will be made available soon on the ASHRAE website. Continue to check ashrae.org/Chicago.
