AHR Expo 2012

Today is day one of the first trade show I’m attending as an employee of this company. The AHR Expo is an international trade show featuring HVAC/R (heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refridgeration) equipment and is sponsored by ASHRAE and AHRI, two industry organizations. The company I work for tries to attend every year and exhibits our equipment, commercial and industrial heating products. AHR Expo is in Chicago this year, but it changes annually; last year it was in Las Vegas, next year it is in Dallas. We also hold an event for our representatives while we’re here, usually on the first night of the show.

So, that’s where I’ll be for most of the day today, tomorrow, and part of Wednesday. I’ll be on Twitter from the business Twitter account with live show coverage. (No wonder I don’t like using social media at home anymore…) I’ve actually been here since Saturday and I got Steve to join me, so we spent some time walking around the city when we weren’t with my co-workers. He leaves tomorrow and I leave on Wednesday, weather pending, and I think I’m taking Thursday and Friday off so I have a nice vacation from work.

Anyway, I should probably start getting ready…
