HPBExpo is your best chance all year to connect with manufacturers face-to-face and build relationships that could be critical for growing your business. Real, actionable solutions are here, including how to revamp your sales tactics, create a better showroom experience, and leverage cutting-edge marketing strategies.
HPBExpo 2020 and New Orleans are Calling.
New Orleans is a city that embodies the very lifestyle that our industry creates: full-sensory experiences and new discoveries. So, there’s no better place to celebrate indoor-outdoor living than the Crescent City. And that’s why, next March, thousands of passionate professionals from around the world will come together to meet old friends and new; make connections that can change the trajectory of their businesses; share what they’ve learned over the last year and exactly what they’re doing to win; see new products and what trends are shaping up; take part in an Education Program that will help grow their businesses; see what their competition is up to; and, let’s face it, have a lot of fun!
Education that moves the needle.
The Hearth, Patio & Barbecue Education Foundation has carefully curated an education program that will help you improve sales, get up to speed on the latest technical specs and regulations, and learn how to run your business more profitably. The very best in our industry will be with us in New Orleans, armed with value-packed education programming that will provide actionable, tangible sales-boosting strategies and tactics. From manufacturer-specific training and 40+ classroom sessions to the NFI certification program and Thursday’s Keynote Address, you can get critical information and insights that could build – and maybe even save – your business in the long term.
