What makes this different than other trade shows and industry events?

The HEAT Show combines the best of the NEFI Energy Expo and Southern New England Energy Conference for a comprehensive, impactful 21st century event.

With a programming schedule suited to the specific needs of our industry’s business executives, office managers, service managers, delivery drivers and service technicians, there is truly something for everyone at the HEAT Show.

Also, unlike other industry events, you don’t need to choose between going to the trade show or the sessions. There are separate tracks for each member of your team, and none of the tracks overlap with the trade show itself.

Most importantly, this is the show where our business leaders and influencers come together to determine the future of the heating fuel industry.

When is the pre-registration deadline?

Pre-registration pricing ends September 10, 2019. Full-price registration will be available onsite at the Rhode Island Convention Center in Providence, RI, from September 15-18.

Why Providence?

In addition to being centrally located between New York and Northern New England, Rhode Island’s energy industry is something of a microcosm of the Northeast heating fuel business, with all its exciting opportunities and challenges.

The Rhode Island Convention Center offers ample space for the delivery trucks, cutting-edge heating equipment, high-volume trade show floor, conference halls and meeting spaces that the HEAT Show demands.

Additionally, Providence is a beautiful and safe city, with plenty of activities available for all attendees and their colleagues and families
