ATLANTA - The 2004 Annual Radiant Panel Association (RPA) Conference, to be held Oct. 13-17, will take place in conjunction with ISH North America in Boston. ISH NA will take place Oct. 14-16 at the new Boston Convention and Exhibition Center.

The RPA will feature the Radiant House directly on the ISH NA show floor. "The Radiant House has been a popular feature at past REX shows," said Lawrence Drake, RPA's executive director. The simulated building structure, constructed on the show floor, has various radiant heating products installed during the event.

Attendees get a chance to experience the installation of staple-up tubing systems, prefabricated radiant floor panels, staple-down tubing and electric systems, gypsum floor pours, and other products. Throughout the day, various radiant companies will demonstrate installation techniques and provide contractors and others with hands-on opportunities. Their handiwork will be left in place throughout the show, according to the association.

Similarly, ISH NA will allow exhibitors to showcase their products in action at a product demonstration area directly on the exhibit hall floor. It will allow trade buyers and attendees to see the latest innovations and most popular products in detail. "It's one thing to see an item on display on the show floor - it's quite another to see that product

in action," stated Roland Bleinroth, president of show organizer and partner Messe Frankfurt Inc.
