in Nashville Look Amazing

At 11 weeks out form the opening bell, here’s where the HPBExpo numbers stand in comparison to the 2017 Expo in Atlanta.

56% up in total registrants
79% up in attendee registrants
73% up in total companies
84% up in attendee companies
89% up in buying entities

It’s no secret that Nashville is a major destination for U.S. travelers. The weather is usually good, the food is always fine, and the music is always hot.

Add to that the chance to view hundreds and hundreds of new products from manufacturers in the hearth, patio and barbecue industries, and you have a recipe for four or so days of enjoyable work and a bit of play.

There’s also the Vesta Awards Ceremony on Friday, March 9, where you can sip a glass of wine while watching approximately 50 of the most innovative products at the Expo displayed on two 15-ft. screens. Plus it’s always fun to listen to the winners as they accept their awards. See you there!
