FOSTERING INNOVATION BY RECOGNIZING THE MOST ADVANCED HVACR TECHNOLOGY

The AHR Expo Innovation Awards is an annual competition that honors the most inventive and original products, systems and technologies showcased at each year’s AHR Expo. Products go head-to-head in the following categories: building automation; cooling; green building; heating; indoor air quality; plumbing; refrigeration; software; tools & instruments; and ventilation. Winners are selected by a panel of third-party ASHRAE member judges who evaluate all award entries based on innovative design, creativity, application, value and market impact.

THE AHR EXPO INNOVATION AWARDS CEREMONY

Every year, winning companies and their products are honored during an awards ceremony held at the AHR Expo.  Winning companies are presented with their awards and the Product of the Year is announced.

ENTRY FEES DONATED TO LOCAL CHARITY

Each year the AHR Expo and it’s exhibitors gives back to the community by donating the Innovation Awards entry fees to an organization in the region where the show is being held. A selection committee chooses a deserving organization that is in need of HVACR repairs, upgrades or installations. We are pleased to be able to donate this year’s entry fees – over $22,000 – to Opportunity Village, an organization dedicated to improving the lives of people in the Las Vegas area living with intellectual disabilities.

HOW TO ENTER

The Innovation Awards Competition is open to all companies exhibiting at the AHR Expo.  Mid-summer an announcement is sent to all eligible companies with a link to the online entry form.  Manufacturers are asked to provide a brief description of what their product is and what it does, and then explain how it excels in the areas of  Application, Innovation, Value, and Market Impact.
