INDIANAPOLIS - The Duct Cleaners Network (DCN) hosted its fifth annual conference Aug. 1-3, 2008, at the Holiday Inn at the Pyramids in Indianapolis. With a focus on business networking between high quality service and equipment providers coupled with peer-to-peer hands-on training, the programs and events were well received.

Over 45 business owners attended the full conference and all conference sessions had a 100 percent participation level. These sessions included topics such as turning your business into a machine, confined space entry, creating employee manuals, and successful marketing in a down economy.

Day two of the conference was held onsite at Mite-E-Ducts/Control Tech of Zionsville. At their campus, Alan and Clay Winters facilitated several hand-on demonstrations including UV lights installation and service, zoning techniques, and encapsulation. The attendees were treated to a lively and interactive keynote presentation by Toni Cooper.
