Dallas, TX (April 21, 2017): This year’s Continuing Education Conference, held from March 20 – March 23, resulted in another well attended show. There were over 450 solar industry professionals in attendance at the InterContinental, Dallas, TX. The conference was well attended by 52 diverse exhibitors; some of which were able to offer training sessions to count towards recertification credits. We were also able to offer 16 panel session discussions featuring top industry experts as guest speakers.
NABCEP would like to thank its generous sponsors and all of the exhibitors for their contributions that make this event a success year after year. Your support is a tremendous vote of confidence for NABCEP’s mission and allows us to hold this special event.
