2021 WHVACR President Lauren Roberts- “The 18th annual Women in HVACR conference was a huge success and provided a unique opportunity to have amazing networking and education opportunities in a casual setting directly on the beach at St. Pete Beach, FL. We had a record attendance of 250 people including many first time attendees, which we were excited about.
We were fortunate to have truly amazing speakers to help our attendees be well-prepared for 2022 and beyond and to overcome the waves of change that we are all experiencing as a result of the global pandemic and other upcoming changes in our industry. We want to express our sincere gratitude to our speakers and members for their contributions to this wonderful event.”

WHVACR made a splash with over 250 attendees that were treated to a different kind of conference experience under a 120 ft tent right on St. Pete’s Beach. The conference had 5 featured speakers on the main stage and 9 breakout speakers for the event. Content offered included marketing strategies, technical workshops, soft skill presentations and best practices for employee retention. Those in attendance came from all over the industry, there were technicians,sales reps, wholesalers, marketing managers, manufacturers, contractors and many more. Making the Women In HVACR conference one of the most diverse industry networking events available. It was a really good mix of old and new members from what we could tell it was split down the middle of past attendees and first timers. We hope to continue this amazing growth in 2022 as well.”
