The Heating, Air-conditioning and Refrigeration Distributors International has opened registration for its 2017 annual conference, which takes place Dec. 2-5 at the Aria Resort & Casino in Las Vegas.

“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.”

HARDI also announced its keynote speakers for the event, which include Whitespace owner and founder Juliet Funt, HARDI Chief Economist Alan Beaulieu, and former Navy Blue Angels solo lead pilot John Foley as the closing keynote presentation.

“For this year’s Nova theme, attendees will again have their choice between three different conference tracks: deploy, discover and deliver,” Gee said. “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.”
