COLUMBUS, Ohio — Heating, Air-conditioning & Refrigeration Distributors International (HARDI) has launched registration for the 2019 Annual Conference: Pulse, which will take place this December 7-10, in New Orleans. The conference will give members the chance to discuss significant areas of opportunity in the industry and how to better unite all levels of the supply chain.

HARDI’s Annual Conference has become a destination for HVACR industry leaders to connect and discuss ideas to better the industry. With this year’s location in New Orleans, HARDI mixed the rich jazz culture of the city with industry discussion to create the Pulse theme. Pulse is an ode to the musicality of New Orleans. That’s why this year the Pulse Conference was created to strengthen the rhythm of the HVACR wholesale industry as a unit.

“HARDI has worked hard this year to better understand the current state of wholesale distribution,” said Talbot Gee, CEO of HARDI.  “The Pulse Conference will be the perfect opportunity for us to share the findings of our research through our first annual State of the Industry report. Our strategic plan is predicated on a proactive and regular set of intel and data to guide how the association works, to ensure that wholesale distributors are the channel of choice for HVACR manufacturers and contractors.”

Outside of the conference, attendees will get the opportunity to experience the captivating city. The Hilton New Orleans Riverside places attendees at the center of it all, with restaurants and entertainment within walkable distance.

The full agenda for the event is expected to be released in early September.  2019 Annual Conference: Pulse details and registration can be found at
