SMACNA was on full display for three days at the AHR Expo 2019 in Atlanta, Georgia, from January 14 to 16.
The expo marked the arrival of the brand new SMACNA display booth and was accompanied by a high-profile video that showcased the benefits that association members bring to the industry. This is the industry’s biggest expo on heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration, and brings tens of thousands of attendees and exhibitors together from destinations across the globe.
The SMACNA booth was directly at the entrance to the main expo hall, and it attracted a steady flow of visitors throughout the show. SMACNA staff members interacted with attendees who came from across the globe including Japan, China, Korea, Australia, Ireland, Germany, Poland, Italy, Spain, Argentina, Brazil, and the United Kingdom. These engineers, architects, contractors, and SMACNA members were able to directly experience the powerful search engine of the SMACNA eLibrary, ask questions about current and future technical manuals, and learn about all SMACNA membership options.
SMACNA’s newest Premier Partner, Johns Manville, demonstrated its robust relationship with the association by posting a large sign announcing, “SMACNA, We Have Your Back!” in the center of their booth. The Johns Manville staff shared their excitement with their visitors of how proud they were to be part of the SMACNA Premier Partner lineup.
Additionally, SMACNA’s technical staff, Mark Terzigni, Pat Brooks, and Shawn O’Hara led two technical educational sessions for the AHR attendees. These sessions were highly attended by both domestic and international attendees and covered HVAC Duct Construction-Duct Design and Design for High Performance Air Distribution Systems.
