AHR Expo adds IAQA as endorsing association
Reflecting its ongoing commitment to improving indoor air quality, the Indoor Air Quality Association has announced its endorsement of the AHR Expo. IAQA is the 26th organization to endorse the HVAC/R industry-leading event.
"By endorsing the AHR Expo, IAQA hopes to attract more of its members to the [show], where they can learn about the latest in IAQ product development, attend educational sessions and network," said Glenn Fellman, executive director, IAQA.
According to Fellman, a number of new products have been developed with a greater emphasis on air cleaning and filtration markets. Other advances that have led to the IAQ boom include increased efficiency HVAC filters, UV lights, anti-microbial products and technology to determine sources of indoor air pollution.
"Our attendees have always had an interest in learning more about improving Indoor Air Quality," said Clay Stevens, president of International Exposition Company, show producers and managers. "Our new relationship with the IAQA will help us educate the industry on residential and commercial IAQ."
