The merging of the ACCA Indoor Air Expo and the IAQA Expo turned out to be a pretty good idea. There were two different types of name tags weaving through the show floor, people got a chance to exchange business cards with some new faces, and I heard that HVAC contractors and mold remediation specialists agreed that the Texas Shiner Bock was worth the trip to Fort Worth.
The show opened up on Tuesday with a junk yard band called Vocal Trash, the guys at the CEO Forum did a little trash talking of their own on Wednesday afternoon with a few good-natured jabs, and two guys with chain saws were cutting up with the audience at the closing event on Thursday.
All in all, another good trip to the South for The NEWS, which happened to be a platinum sponsor of this year’s ACCA convention.
Next stop - Scottsdale, Ariz., for the Mechanical Contractors Association of America Annual convention, where I’m looking for more short-sleeve shirt weather.
