BURLINGTON, Washington – June 4, 2007 – Professionals dedicated to learning and growing in the field of restorative drying will gather at this year’s Dri-Eaz Symposium September 11-12 in Las Vegas, just prior to the Connections Convention and Trade Show.

This year’s program covers current critical issues for the restoration industry – everything from marketing for business success and legal risk management strategies, to technical topics like understanding psychrometrics and emerging sensing technology for job monitoring.

Keynote speaker Terry Bowden, college football analyst and coach of year, will share his strategies for winning with better teamwork. Bowden believes that it doesn't cost one dime to motivate people within your organization to be their best together and he'll tell you how to do it. Other internationally known Symposium speakers include Donald Gatley, who literally wrote the book on psychrometry, “Understanding Psychrometrics;” Bob Pritchard, international marketer of the year and author of “Kick Ass Marketing;” and a panel of experts on the industry’s next big turning point in job monitoring, remote sensing.

Several breakout sessions will provide fresh technical insights and increase businesses’ competitive advantage. Topics include: Effective Ways to Immediately Improve Your Bottom Line, Advances in Desiccant Dehumidification Technology, The Nuts and Bolts of Drafting a Good Contract, and Psychrometrics: Linking RH, Grains, Dew Point and EMC.
