SMACNA was an active participant at the 2023 AHR Expo, held at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, GA. Traditionally, AHR has been the premier event in the HVAC industry, serving as a showcase for some of the latest product offerings by some of the largest service and product providers. While some of the previous shows dealt with some challenges resulting from COVID-19, the 2023 edition of the AHR Expo saw a return to pre-pandemic attendance numbers.
SMACNA was present in several capacities during the event. Representatives from SMACNA’s Technical Services Department led a presentation on How to use SMACNA’s Guyed Steel Stacks Construction Guide and another panel on SMACNA's HVAC Ductwork Live Load & Tie-Rod Applications. Representatives from Communications and Member & Corporate Relations were present to provide information and answer questions about SMACNA’s efforts within the industry.
In addition to visiting exhibitors on the show floor, a group from SMACNA Brasil had the opportunity to visit SMACNA members based in the metropolitan Atlanta area.
A pair of SMACNA’s Premier Partners, Mestek and Johns Manville, showed off some of the latest product offerings that are either now available or soon to hit the market.
