April 12, 2005: Network 05 To Unite Manufacturers, Wholesalers, Contractors

CHICAGO and FALLS CHURCH, Va. - The American Supply Association (ASA) and the Plumbing-Heating-Cooling Contractors-National Association (PHCC) have announced plans to co-produce Network 05, Sept. 7-10 in Orlando, Fla., at the Disney Swan and Dolphin Hotels. Network 05 will combine both associations' annual conventions into a single platform.

The program will begin on Wednesday, Sept. 7, with a single registration required for all events. On Thursday, Sept. 8, each association will hold concurrent membership meetings. A multi-track conference program runs Thursday through Saturday. Attendees will be allowed to select any seminars that appeal to them, whether sponsored by ASA or PHCC. On Friday afternoon, a tabletop expo called "Channel Marketplace" will be open to all attendees.

Among the event's highlights will be a keynote presentation by Captain Jim Lovell and Gene Krantz, key figures in NASA's Apollo 13 mission. Also, for the multi-disciplinary audience, a panel discussion examining supply chain value and mutual profitability will be featured.

According to ASA executive director Inge Calderon, the combined Network 05 conference is a result of both associations listening and responding to the industry's request for a simplified event in 2005. "Our members asked for a seamless event this year. I'm pleased to say we've delivered. Everything from registration to seminar attendance to the tabletop exhibits has been improved. This will be a low-investment, high-return event for everyone who participates."
