TAMPA, Fla.  Since people have been at home, working remotely, they have taken the opportunity to upgrade their homes or work on home projects, which has led to a boom in business for residential home service contractors. HVAC, plumbing, electrical, and remodeling contractors have been busier than ever. In addition to this boom in business, there have been new challenges in the industry.

A few of the major obstacles facing home service contractors include:

  • Labor shortages in the trades;
  • Supply chain disruptions in labor, raw materials, computer chips, triggering inventory shortages, equipment pricing increases, and uncertainty in manufacturing outputs; and
  • New regulations in HVAC equipment efficiencies.

Contractors are looking for answers and guidance on how to navigate through these challenges. They are also looking for supply chain partners, business solutions, and strategies on recruiting, retaining, and developing top talent.

This October, the Service World Expo is being held to address some of these issues, while giving the necessary tools to contractors in HVAC, plumbing, electrical, and remodeling to overcome these new challenges. To help contractors continue to grow and become more profitable during this time, Service World Expo is bringing in 42 industry specific speakers, over 200 industry exhibitors, and three keynote speakers — including two-time national champion and first round NFL draft pick, Tim Tebow.

The Service World Expo is a conference, trade show, and networking event for residential contractors involved in plumbing, HVAC, electrical, or remodeling services. Being held on October 18-21, 2022, at the Tampa Convention Center in Tampa, Florida, the event will encompass compelling content, educational breakouts, a product showcase, and entertainment events.
