COLUMBUS, Ohio, July 12, 2017 – Heating, Air-conditioning & Refrigeration Distributors International (HARDI) opened registration for its 2017 Annual Conference on Wednesday. Along with the announcement, HARDI unveiled the “NOVA” theme and conference website.

This year’s conference follows the acclaimed “Elevate” 2016 and “Forward” 2015 Annual Conferences.

“We are very excited to announce that HARDI’s 2017 Annual Conference theme is NOVA,” said HARDI CEO Talbot Gee. “NOVA is all about expanding and growing at your fullest potential, and our members are constantly exploring and pushing boundaries to find new ways to do just that. We are proud to represent the HVACR distribution industry and host this great event so jam-packed with value. Attendees always love the opportunity to build new relationships or build upon old ones in the industry, and this year we have a great lineup of speakers they won’t want to miss.”

As part of the NOVA reveal, HARDI announced its keynote speakers for the event, which are Whitespace owner and founder Juliet Funt as the opener, HARDI Chief Economist Alan Beaulieu and former Navy Blue Angels Solo Lead Pilot John Foley as the closing keynote.

“For this year’s NOVA theme, attendees will again have their choice between three different conference tracks: Deploy, Discover and Deliver,” Gee continued. “Each track has been specially tailored for each part of the distribution chain, with excellent takeaways that attendees will be able to implement immediately. I encourage registered attendees to watch the website for updates announcing specific sessions.”
