Outlook for the HVAC industry remains very strong heading into 2020 as the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects 13% growth right through the year 2028. If you’re looking to establish yourself in this space (or even just increase your existing presence), here are a few prominent HVAC trade shows in 2020 to look forward to.

6 Must-Attend HVAC Conferences in 2020

#1. AHR Expo

The AHR Expo is a massive event that attracts industry leaders from around the world. Everyone from designers to engineers, installers, and clients attends the AHR Expo. The conference, which takes place in Orlando in 2020 from February 3-5, is perfect for learning more about the technology driving this industry as well as trends to keep in mind for 2020 and beyond.

Location: Orange County Convention Center, West Building, Orlando, Florida

Dates: February 3-5, 2020

#2. GLOBALCON 2020

GLOBALCON is another one of the biggest HVAC conventions in 2020. Run by the Association of Energy Engineers, GLOBALCON 2020 is perfect for those looking to learn more about the technology driving improved energy efficiency in the HVAC industry and how it will become more affordable for the average consumer.

It’s not just an HVAC exhibition for 2020, though. Presenters will discuss energy efficiency in all areas.

Location: Hynes Convention Center in Boston, Massachusetts

Dates: March 21-22, 2020

#3. ACCA Conference & Expo

The Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA) will be hosting this event in St. Louis, Missouri. If you’re a contractor looking to further your career in the HVAC industry, this is the event for you. 2019’s conference in San Antonio covered just about everything relevant to the industry -- including cannabis legalization and how that affects contractor safety.

Their coverage of this and other staffing concerns makes the ACCA Conference great for owners of HVAC companies like American Home Water and Air to attend, too.

Location: St. Louis Union Station Hotel, Curio Collection by Hilton, St. Louis, Missouri

Dates: March 16-18, 2020

#4. ASHRAE Annual Conference

Austin, Texas tends to be excruciatingly hot around the time this conference is happening. But don’t worry -- there will be plenty of HVAC experts on hand to keep the place cool. As far as 2020 HVAC conferences go, it’s one of the longer ones, meaning you have more time to network and learn at your own pace.

The ASHRAE Annual Conference is truly geared towards learning. Attendees are invited to choose from the following curriculums:

  • Fundamentals and Applications
  • HVAC&R Systems and Equipment
  • Professional Development
  • Research Summit
  • Grid-Interactive Efficient Built Environment
  • Multifamily and Residential Buildings
  • Resilient Buildings and Communities
  • Zero Energy Buildings and Communities: Opportunities and Challenges
  • Building Myths

Location: JW Marriott and Austin Convention Center, Austin, Texas

Dates: June 27-July 1, 2020

#5. Campus Energy 2020

Campus Energy is another great HVAC show in 2020 to mark on your calendar. As its name suggests, the Campus Energy conference aims to facilitate thought-provoking technical discussions and peer-to-peer critiques akin to an institution of higher education.

There will be more than 200 presenters and over 100 sessions to enjoy during Campus Energy 2020.

Location: Sheraton, Downtown Denver, Colorado

Dates: February 10-14, 2020

#6. CTI Annual Conference

Last but certainly not least, we have the Cooling Technology Institute (CTI) HVAC expo in 2020. It’s quite a bit smaller than many other exhibitions (the AHR Expo, for comparison sake, hosts 70,000+ attendees), which is a major advantage if you happen to dislike large crowds.

Location: The Westin Galleria, Houston, Texas

Dates: February 9-13, 2020

Why Attend HVAC Trade Shows in 2020?

Even if you’ve been in the business (as many professionals have) for decades, you’re never too big or too informed to network and engage in discussions surrounding the industry’s future. There are many major changes happening in 2020, including the enforcement of new rules surrounding HCFC refrigerants and the ever-present shift towards greener technology. 

The best HVAC conferences in 2020 focus on thought-provoking discussions surrounding these developments that will help your company maintain relevance with an increasingly demanding customer base.

Whether you specialize in commercial HVAC, residential HVAC, or both, don’t miss these epic HVAC conventions in 2020!
