RPA to hold annual meeting alongside 2015 AHR Expo

The Radiant Professionals Alliance (RPA) will hold its annual meeting and conference in conjunction with the 2015 AHR Expo, Jan 26-28, in Chicago.

In addition to relocating its meeting and conference to AHR Expo, RPA will develop a training and education program and host a booth on the show floor. Hundreds of radiant professionals are expected to attend RPA’s annual meeting and conference, which will be held Jan. 27 at McCormick Place. RPA will also hold its board meeting in Chicago on Sunday, Jan 25, the day before the opening of the AHR Expo.

“The Radiant Professionals Alliance has been an exhibitor at AHR Expo for many years and it has been very beneficial. Now we are thrilled to be working with AHR Expo to enhance education and training for the radiant-hydronic industry,” said Mark Eatherton, RPA executive director.

Eatherton said the RPA has already assembled an education committee of experts who are developing a complete radiant and hydronic training and education program that will be available to all AHR Expo attendees. In addition, some of the topics that will be addressed at the RPA annual meeting include updates on the RPA Certification program for contractors and installers; a preview of the new Uniform Solar Energy and Hydronics Code for the United States; a review of the RPA education committee’s priority list of programs and projects for the industry; a presentation of legislative activity involving the radiant-hydronics industry by the public policy committee; and market expansion programs for the commercial radiant-hydronics segment.

“We are delighted RPA is relocating its annual meeting and conference to AHR Expo,” said Clay Stevens, president of International Exposition Company, which produces and manages the AHR Expo. “AHR Expo attendees who are interested in radiant heating and cooling will be able to stay at the cutting-edge of the technology, while RPA members will be able to discover new products and solutions from nearly 2,000 exhibitors and choose from more than 100 AHR Expo and ASHRAE educational sessions.”

Stevens said radiant heating and cooling has been a steadily growing segment at the AHR Expo for several years and features many exhibiting companies showcasing radiant products and solutions.              

“AHR Expo represents all segments of the HVACR industry so we are glad any time we can strengthen and grow a key sector of the show,” he said.
