Events aimed at providing industry insights and new concepts

LOUIS, MO (June 28, 2024) – Marcone, North America’s largest distributor of appliance, HVAC, commercial kitchen, plumbing and pool/spa equipment, repair parts and solutions, recently hosted industry professionals in three locations across the country for periods of education and networking.

Marcone business units in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Massachusetts and Kansas brought together hundreds of HVAC professionals for a series of educational sessions aimed at giving business owners the resources to continue successfully growing their company moving forward.

Munch’s Supply welcomed American Standard and Trane dealers to annual meetings in both Chicago and Detroit under the theme, “Stand out.” There, dealers learned about AI, financing, new products and best practices as a way of helping them separate their business from the competition.

 API of NH/Delta T hosted Rheem dealers in Boston in a nod to their successful partnership and look toward the future. Dealers learned about industry trends, products and solutions to make 2024 their best year yet. They also found new ways for API to support their business and returned home with strategies for ongoing success.

O’Connor Company welcomed more than 220 dealers to the Overland Park Convention Center in Kansas. The meeting focused on navigating toward success, with sessions about overcoming adversity, maximizing profit and embracing change.

“Marcone wants to be more than just a distributor to our customers,” said Randall Hudspeth, President of Marcone HVAC. “We see ourselves as a partner, someone who is invested in our customers’ success. That’s why we focus on all aspects of their business and offer industry-best practices for everything from marketing and financing to new product development and technical support. These annual dealer meetings are one of the most hands-on avenues we have to do that.”
