Nationwide Boiler Travels: WRBA Conference and IDEA Annual Campus Energy


Nationwide Boiler and Pacific Combustion Engineering have representatives at two tradeshows this week on opposite sides of the country. 

We have Nationwide Boiler's Tim McBride and Pacific Combustion Engineering's Mike Dorthalina in Renton, WA joining boiler owners and vendors at the Western Regional Boiler Association (WRBA) Conference. This conference invites power boiler owners and operators from the West Coast and Canada to gather in one location and network with others in the industry, attend education presentations discussing a wide range of topics, and learn about the newest products to market.

In Baltimore, MD, we have Jim Barbeau and Jaime Cubillos representing Nationwide Boiler at the IDEA Annual Campus Energy Show. This event includes 72 presentations, 100 exhibitors, and 800+ attendees that come together to discuss the latest trends in the district heating realm. Their motto and goal this year is "Sharing Solutions, Sustaining Our Future". 

These are two exciting and valuable events that we have come to know very well, and we exhibit at these shows every year. Be sure to visit the Nationwide Boiler table if you will be in attendance at either show; #44 at WRBA and #19 at IDEA. We hope to see you there!

Nationwide Boiler Attending AHR Expo 2018 This Week


The AHR Expo was founded 88 years ago with the goal to bring HVACR professionals together to share ideas, products, and technical support. Today, it remains the single largest all-inclusive HVACR (Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning, and Refrigerating) event in the world with over 65,000 attendees from 165 countries around the globe. Designers, engineers, manufacturers, and end-users have a unique opportunity to learn about and showcase the latest equipment and technologies available in the market from over 2,000 exhibitors, including some familiar names such as Cleaver-Brooks, ECO Products, Emerson, Marlo Incorporated, and McDonnell & Miller.

The show will include live demonstrations, seminar programs, product presentations, and an Innovation Awards ceremony in honor of the most inventive and original products, systems and technologies showcased at the expo this year. The Innovation Awards competition is exceptional in its recognition of inventive and original products, systems and technologies. The AHR Expo gives back to the community by donating the entry fees to a local charity every year. This year, the Chicago Lighthouse received $20,700 to continue their efforts in serving the blind, visually impaired, disabled and Veteran communities. As a fervent advocate for our troops, with many of our employees having served in the military, Nationwide Boiler appreciates the organization’s efforts in providing support to our veterans.

As industry professionals, we recommend taking advantage of some of the superb programs available at the show. The American Boiler Manufacturers Association (ABMA) will be offering a free two-hour industry session on “Maximizing Hydronic Boiler System Designs—The Fundamentals” starting at 2:30pm in S102D.

Representatives from Nationwide Boiler, Jim Lieskovan and Bill Testa, will be attending the AHR Expo at McCormick Place in Chicago, IL today through Wednesday. Our motto, “Integrity, Dependability, and Real Customer Service”, demonstrates our commitment to providing customers with reliable and energy efficient equipment. To schedule a meeting with Jim or Bill, please call us toll free at (800) 227-1966.
