In 2019 the HARDI Annual Conference was held in New Orleans at the Hilton Riverside Hotel from Saturday, December 7th to Tuesday, December 10th and did not disappoint. The PULSE theme of the conference emphasized “Study the present, Influence the future.”

The PULSE theme of the convention was referring to the rich music culture of New Orleans as well as the rhythm of the HVACR industry. In the words of HARDI, “When creating a successful song, there are many pieces involved: a melody, a chorus, verses, and so on. And just like composing a musical masterpiece, wholesale distribution requires a lot of integrated entities that must work together to achieve harmony. That’s why this year the Pulse Conference was created to strengthen the rhythm of the HVACR wholesale industry as a unit. By examining all contributors involved in our industry, we were able to discover significant areas of opportunity to better unite all levels of the supply chain and in turn, ensure a newfound synchronicity.”

The 2020 HARDI annual conference will be held in Atlanta, Georgia at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis from December 5th thru December 8th.
