The draft agenda is under development and will be circulated in the coming weeks. The meeting will include presentations on a range of topics important to ENERGY STAR Residential New Construction partners, including the following:
- Panelized construction trends and technologies (guest speaker from IBACOS)
- Smart Home Energy Management Systems (SHEMS) – future vision and utility models
- HVAC sensors (guest speakers from Goodman and Emerson)
- Plus critical updates on major ENERGY STAR programmatic initiatives including RaterPRO, HVAC Grading Standard 310, the Multifamily New Construction program, Revision 10 & 11, sales training, and more.
Reserve your booth ASAP--a few spots are still available for the ENERGY STAR Expo!
EPA is offering ENERGY STAR retailer and manufacturing partners the opportunity to showcase their ENERGY STAR certified products at the meeting. If you are interested in exhibiting your ENERGY STAR certified appliances, electronics, electric vehicle chargers, HVAC, lighting, smart home energy management systems, smart thermostats, and water heaters during the 2019 ENERGY STAR Products Partner Meeting, please send an email to Kelly Schneider, ICF, at Kelly.Schneider@icf.com no later than July 12, 2019.
To accommodate as many requests as possible, exhibitors may initially only sign-up for one booth. If additional space is available after July 12, EPA will release the additional booths to those exhibitors that have requested multiple booths.
Please note that the ENERGY STAR Product Expo will be in the center section of the main ballroom, where all the meals and breaks will also take place. The booths will be placed around the perimeter of the room to allow for easy interaction with other stakeholders. The ENERGY STAR Products Partner Meeting and the ENERGY STAR Residential New Construction Partner Meeting will host their main sessions in the ballroom sections on either side of the ENERGY STAR Product Expo.
Exhibitors will be working with an exhibitor services company for all their exhibitor-specific needs. While there is no upfront cost to exhibit at the meeting, exhibitors’ costs for the booth package, set-up, labor, and materials associated with their booths will be handled directly with the expo services provider.
