If you haven’t made plans to be at the Comfortech Show (September 9-11) at the Nashville Convention Center, it’s not too late to get your butt down to Nashville. Yes, Nashville! Great restaurants, dining, and BBQ, Nashville was recently rated as the most “American U.S. city”—based on its demographics that closely mirror the U.S. average as a whole—according to the personal finance website, WalletHub.
Networking, visiting with industry friends a keeping abreast on the latest product, tool, technology and breakout seminars still rules the day at this show. This show is perfect for contractors interested in the latest and greatest in HVAC, radiant heating and cooling, better business practices, etc.
According to an independent survey of attendees at Comfortech 2013:
• 98% found new products as a result of visiting the show
• 86% found new suppliers and will purchase new products as a result
• 80% plan to make a new purchase based on what they saw at the show
Cowboy boots optional, the Comfortech Extravaganza will be held September 10 from 8 pm to 11:00 pm at Honkey Tonk Central. These blowout bashes are loads of fun and a perfect way to unwind after a great day of seminars and trade show.
