2013 AHR Expo Set New Records
 


There was an air of optimism on the exhibit floor in Dallas.
Based on the preliminary report from our registration company, we are pleased to confirm that the 2013 AHR Expo set 2 new attendance records for Shows held in the Southwest:
 

Total Visitors – 33,891 (not including Exhibitor personnel)
 
Total Attendance – 51,337 (including exhibitor personnel)
The 2013 Exposition has also set 2 new Southwestern Records for size: 
Exhibiting Companies – 1,953
 
Total square feet of exhibits – 396,564

 

The AHR EXPO was a success for Women in HVACR, our booth drew interest from both new members and sponsors alike. Our organization made new industry contacts with partner organizations that will allow us to continue to bring our members more value and ways to network with other members through the year, outside of our annual meeting.

The Tuesday morning educational session “Making you Company Whole with Home Performance”- was well received. I had several people come find me during the show to tell me what a great presentation we had. They were impressed with our guest speaker Blaine Fox from Warm Thoughts Communication and got a lot out of the presentation.

Blaine did an outstanding job sharing ways to enhance your business bottom line by incorporating home performance as part of your business strategy.  Our guests learned how to

  1. Improve their retail sales and marketing strategy to generate more leads, close more upgrade and retrofit sales, and achieve the lowest Cost per Customer Acquisition (CCA) possible.
  2. Understand and apply the core principles of labor management to ensure profitability on each job.
  3. Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and what the progressive home performance contractor manages and measures in a profitable business.
 

Below is an email from one of the attendees.

Blaine,

I attended your HPC presentation at the AHR show. You did an excellent job! I was educated, inspired and re-energized. Best free session I have ever attended and better than many that I have paid for.

For me your presentation was really more like “100 great tips and reminders for HVAC contractors”, with bonus info about how to market Home Performance.

I just wanted to let you know that I was impressed and really appreciate the boost. Also I personally just really enjoy watching anyone do a really good job at anything, such as:  sports; music; a trade; or in this case public speaking and educating. My wife happens to make a living doing equestrian workshops, clinics, and presentations, so I have a particular interest in public speakers.

In case you care, here are some specific things I was impressed by:

Your presentation skills and ability to connect with the audience.

Your no nonsense, no gimmick, no BS information. Everything you presented rang true with my experience or my common sense.

Your confidence without excess ego. You came across as competent and sincere.

I operate a tiny, 3 man, company.  I choose to serve a tiny rural geographic area and most of my business is by referral. I doubt I will ever be in the situation where I would be able to use your company’s services, but I will use any ideas I can, from what you showed us.

Thank you!
