Contractors Gather for Trainings, Networking at Service World Expo

Oct. 10, 2023
The Expo ran October 3-6, 2023, at the Phoenix Convention Center, and attracted more than 1,200 attendees from around the nation.

PHOENIX, AZ — Service World Expo, a networking and training conference dedicated to HVAC, plumbing, electrical, remodeling, and residential home services professionals, convened over 1,200 contractors and staff from across the United States this week to rebound from a surprising summer slump and prepare for upcoming business opportunities with the Inflation Reduction Act, AI, and more. 

The robust lineup of keynote speakers, breakout sessions, and business training sessions across four available tracks provided contractors incisive tools and takeaways to bounce back their bottom lines and focus on the upcoming heating season.

Sessions of note included how to benefit from the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 as states such as Arizona begin to activate around the incentives available to consumers and contractors who serve them nationwide. Also, contractors learned how fellow industry peer companies are applying AI in their customer service and other operations to streamline costs and improve business overall.

Keynote speakers provided inspiring anecdotes and poignant insights, including renowned actor and author Richard Karn, former Philadelphia Eagle and magician Jon Dorenbos, and entrepreneur and podcast host Tommy Mello. Meanwhile, dozens of exhibitors were present from leading industry brands such as Amana, Daikin, Ferguson, Goodman, Lennox, Rheem among others to showcase their latest innovations and services to help add value to contractor businesses.

“Service Expo 2023 was another hit. Our goal is to create an environment where home services contractors of all shapes and sizes can network with fellow contractors, learn about new products and services, receive massive education, and of course, have fun,” said Tom Peregrino, President of Service Nation. “We’ve already received overwhelming, positive feedback and are looking forward to Service World Expo 2024 in Orlando.”
