Registration is now open for the Air Conditioning Contractors of America’s 43rd Annual Conference and Indoor Air Expo Feb. 15-17 in San Antonio. Those who purchase a full, “first employee” registration before Dec. 1 will receive the full Learning Labs DVD set for free after the conference. The DVD is a recording of all the presentations at the event.

“We’re always looking for ways to provide our contractor members and conference participants with terrific value, so this is a way we can help them get the most out of the largest educational event for contractors,” says Paul Stalknecht, president and CEO. “We will mail out the DVDs as soon as production is complete, to all attendees who either registered early to earn it for free or purchased a copy on-site. This will allow them to refresh their learning experiences, and share valuable learning with the top leaders in their companies that may not have been able to attend.”

The 2011 event will include more than 35 focused learning labs, taught by leading contractors and experts, in a variety of topic tracks, including residential contracting, commercial contracting, business fundamentals and technical excellence. A few of the topics available for contractors to explore during the conference are “Social Media in the Real World: A Contractor Case Study,”  “Getting Maximum Replacements from Your Customer Base,” “Solar Power and the HVACR Contractor,” “BIM in Action: Building Information Modeling and Commercial HVACR” and more.

Full conference registration includes all of the learning labs, sessions, and forums, as well as passes to the Indoor Air Expo and the evening chairman’s banquet.
