Actually -- there is a lot of partying at Comfortech. Obviously the sessions and trade show are during the day, but we throw a blow-out party on Thursday Night and usually have a another one on Friday night. Wednesday evening is an opening reception that is really fun too.
This year in Baltimore, we had a number of HVAC-Talk members attend and I had the pleasure of meeting them and getting to know them. Some included Robo, Lusker, HeyBob, ARPA, and JR Benny. There were others too.
If you want to plan a special visit to Nordyne while you're in St. Louis, we can help arrange it. Nordyne may be planning to do something like that anyway. Too early to know.
You shouldn't feel like an outsider to Comfortech. You're a contractor right? The show is for you!!! It is designed for the residential/light commercial HVAC contractor and has been serving that community for 10 years.
By the way -- we are so proud of HVAC-Talk that we added an HVAC-talk booth on the show floor. We'll do that again in St. Louis. Htalk members are encouraged to drop by and help sign up new memebers. This year we gave away HVAC-Talk T-shirts and will probably do that again in St. Louis.
If you're interested in getting a group together for social purposes at Comfortech, feel free to use the Comfortech forum here to do that. And I will help in any way I can.
