For those of you who've attended Comfortech before, you know that it is the gathering place for the HVACR and plumbing industries. Contractors, distributors, manufacturers, consultants, students, and technicians come together to see the latest products and learn from the industry's best trainers how to be more successful despite what is or isn't happening in the economy.

In the August issue of Contracting magazine, my FIRST WORD editorial page illuminates a little history o the greater Nashville area and the history of Comfortech in Nashville -- 2014 will be our 6th time making that great city our host and home.

If you're interested in reading a little history, please check out my August editor's page. If you haven't done so already, you should register now for the event and get the early-bird discount (offer ends on 8/14). Also, book your hotel room. Rooms are going fast, so if you want to stay in the main hotel, get online and book today.

If you want to learn more about the sessions and ancillary meetings, go to the Comfortech website and check it out, or stand by: we'll be posting much of that information here in the next few days.

Whether you've attended Comfortech before or not, consider Nashville this year — we have a lot of new things going on, lots of networking opportunities, and music, sweet sweet music.

So come and join us.

We look forward to seeing you all there.
