Come to Comfortech, Sept. 19 – 22, in Philadelphia, and be prepared for a whole lotta’ awesome. With a newly redesigned Comfortech “look,” the conference and trade show is launching into a new phase, to provide a bigger and better event.
This year’s show will have loads of information for professional HVACR and plumbing contractors who want to learn about what is disrupting their industry, and what will give them the advantage to stand out from their competition.
Contractors will learn new procedures related to technical installations, sales and marketing solutions and new business opportunities all while getting credits through NATE and RSES.
And for the first time, Comfortech will be offering full- and half-day workshops. These Pre-Conference Workshops will take a deeper dive into topics that contractors have identified as important. Here are some highlights:
• NATE Certification Review and Testing
• The Invincible Sales Professional
• Smart Technology Evolution: Opportunity that Lies in Connected Products
• OSHA Approved Confined Spaces Training
Contractors attending the workshops will have direct interaction with topic experts like Weldon Long and Brigham Dickinson. They will leave with actionable ideas and strategies to apply immediately when they get back to work. Workshops take place Monday, Sept. 19, and Tuesday, Sept. 20.
Comfortech has partnered with NATE and RSES to offer credits for technical sessions and workshops. Whether you need them to stay current with your state requirements or are just looking to differentiate yourself from other contractors, credits enhance your value and set you apart.
