HARDI’s 2017 Annual Conference will again be divided into three distinct tracks. These tracks help attendees tailor their conference experience to individual needs and to explore areas of opportunity with different organizations. This year’s tracks are Discover, Deploy and Deliver.

Discover

This path highlights the relationship between suppliers and distributors, as they work closely to partner for maximum mutual benefit. Whether it’s advances in product technology or the development of a digital sales strategy, this track is full of possibilities.

Deploy

This path highlights your internal strategies, as you seek to align and lead your internal operations towards advancement. Whether it’s best practices in human resources, leadership or inventory management, this track focuses inward, offering practical and precise advice.

Deliver

This path focuses on the HVACR customer, helping you to identify and meet their exacting needs, and solidifying your position as an essential partner. Find out how you can better support your customer, including marketing strategies, sales tactics, customer service enhancements and more.
