The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) — also known as the HVAC Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Association —announced that its 34th Annual Meeting and Exposition will take place March 27-29 at the Hilton Riverside in New Orleans.

The annual event will bring together a diverse group of professionals involved in the inspection, cleaning, and restoration of HVAC systems. Attendees will gain insights into emerging technologies, the latest trends, proven ways to build and grow duct cleaning businesses, and best practices based on current literature and evidence-based standards.

“This year’s program continues our focus on training and education, with outstanding content for technicians and business owners,” said Jodi Araujo, NADCA's chief executive officer. “It’s important that HVAC professionals continue to learn and network with industry peers and learn best practices from industry experts. Attendees from both established air duct cleaning businesses and new companies entering the industry will have access to incredible educational sessions. No one offers better professional development and networking opportunities than NADCA.”

Technicians seeking the air systems cleaning specialist (ASCS) or certified ventilation inspector (CVI) certification will have the opportunity to participate in the pre-conference training courses on March 27, with exams for both certifications offered on March 28.

The conference will also feature educational sessions that provide attendees with the opportunity to gain continuing education credits (CECs) necessary for certification renewals.

In addition, the event will feature an exhibit hall providing attendees with an up-close-and-personal view of new and innovative technology, equipment, and services available for the HVAC cleaning industry.
