Organizers of the International Air-Conditioning, Heating, Refrigerating Exposition (AHR Expo) are accepting entries for the 2018 AHR Expo Innovation Awards competition.
Recognizing products, systems, and technologies that have elevated standards for the responsible and effective use of resources, Innovation Awards are given in 10 categories:
- Building Automation.
- Green Building.
- Indoor Air Quality.
- Tools and Instruments.
Award recipients will receive special recognition prior to the 2018 AHR Expo, which will be held Jan. 22-24 at McCormick Place in Chicago. Awards will be presented and a Product of the Year will be announced during a ceremony on Jan. 23.
All 2018 AHR Expo exhibitors are eligible for the competition. Exhibitors may submit one product in each category, as long as the product has not previously won an award. To be considered, products must be exhibited at the show and be available for sale by the end of January 2018. Completed entry forms and a $100 entry fee must be submitted online at https://ahrexpo.com/awards-enter/ by Aug. 16, 2017.
Judging is based on the following criteria: innovative design, creativity, application, value, and market impact. All submissions will be evaluated by a panel of third-party ASHRAE members working in all facets of the industry.
All entry fees will be donated to a charitable organization serving the Chicago area.
