The HARDI Annual Conference is open only to current members of the association.
Heating, Air-conditioning, Refrigeration Distributors International (HARDI) annually recognizes a number of their supplier members for various levels of support and loyalty to the association over the years. One of the most significant awards given is the HARDI Booster Award. This award is presented annually to the supplier member who has made outstanding contributions to the association and HVAC industry as a whole. Recipients of HARDI’s Booster Award must be nominated by a wholesale distributor member.
In this day and age, technology has allowed a business relationship to be consummated without the buyer ever meeting or even speaking directly with the seller. When a distributor works with a supplier in that way the loyalty and customer service is not backed up by the proverbial "handshake", the personal trust that comes from working with the customer face-to-face to establish that essential business relationship. The goal of HARDI’s Conference Booth Program is to provide an opportunity for distributors and their current suppliers as well as an opportunity for suppliers to meet potential customers face-to-face and create a relationship that goes beyond the bottom line.
HARDI (Heating, Air-conditioning and Refrigeration Distributors International) is the single voice of wholesale distribution within the HVACR industry.
HARDI members market, distribute, and support heating, air-conditioning, and refrigeration equipment, parts and supplies. HARDI Distributor members serve installation and service/replacement contractors in residential and commercial markets, as well as commercial/industrial and institutional maintenance staffs. HARDI proudly represents more than 475 distributor members representing nearly 4,100 branch locations, and close to 500 suppliers, manufacturer representatives and service vendors.
