If you’ve never been able to attend HARDI’s annual conference, the association is offering a way to help one member go to Las Vegas this December.

The Annual Conference Contest winner will receive free registration (worth $1,000) for one executive-level attendee for the Dec. 2-5 event at the Aria hotel-casino in Las Vegas.

“We understand that there are a good number of HARDI member executive staff and employees that have never been to one of our Annual Conferences, and would like to if not for various reasons,” said Chris DeBoer, marketing manager with the Heating, Air-conditioning and Refrigeration Distributors International. “We wanted to open this door to give those individuals an opportunity to attend this valuable and exciting event, as well as gather data that will allow us to organize this event in a way that will bypass some of those obstacles, allowing more people to attend.”

To enter the contest, go to this website and follow the instructions. The winner will be announced Oct. 17.

“We encourage potential first-time attendees to enter, as well as for those who have been to an annual conference to pass this information along to coworkers or employees who could gain from the experience,” DeBoer added.
