Record Turnout for the 2020 F.W. Webb HVAC Refrigeration & Controls Dealer Meeting
On Thursday, February 27th, F.W. Webb Company held its 7th annual HVAC Dealer Meeting at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, CT. The weather cooperated this year and the attendance numbers reflected that. In total, over 750 people were in attendance between customers, vendors and F.W. Webb employees.
F.W. Webb’s annual HVAC Dealer Meeting is an opportunity for HVAC customers to learn about the latest trends and products from the industry’s top manufacturers while mingling with their peers from across the Northeast.
The day opened with an informative and timely keynote presentation from Brian Beaulieu, CEO and Chief Economist of ITR Economics. Beaulieu’s presentation was titled “Economic Opportunities and Challenges: 2020 – 2023.” The purpose of the presentation was to inform and prepare the attendees for the inevitable changes that are ahead in order to drive practical and profitable business decisions and increase personal wealth. He focused on the economic trends and outlook for specifically HVAC and Refrigeration contractors in the FW Webb 9-state area.
From there, representatives from York, Daikin, Honeywell, Johnson Controls, Sporlan, US Motors and Bosch hosted a variety of break-out seminars. They provided insight on their products as well as where they see things going in 2020 and beyond.
The rest of the evening was filled with a jam-packed vendor cocktail reception with over 80 exhibitors followed by a lively buffet dinner complete with a DJ.
The day was deemed a success by customers and vendors alike. This was the largest turnout in the seven years of doing the event and everyone left energized and full of new ideas to improve their business.
