On Wednesday, October 30, the Geothermal Alliance of Illinois is sponsoring “Chicagoland GEOthermal 2013,” a no-registration-cost, one day educational event to encourage companies and individuals to get involved in the geothermal heat pump industry. The GAOI is planning to market this event to more than 5,000 HVAC contractors in the greater Chicago/northern IL region.
Registration is open on a first-come basis and is limited. We expect at least 100 attendees at this event.
We are offering sponsorships for the event. All sponsor organizations will be a “tabletop exhibit” space. We’re doing this for two reasons – first, our goal is to break even on this and cover our costs (which are significant in the Chicago suburbs). Second, we want potential geothermal contractors to make connections with the right people in the geothermal industry and a mini vendor fair seems to be a good venue. We will set up these displays around the outside of the room where we will be meeting.
“Chicagoland GEOthermal 2013” will be held at Ashton Place in Willowbrook. Ashton Place is at 341 75th Street, just a few blocks north of I-55 off the Kingery Highway/IL Hwy 83 exit. Click here for a map.
Sponsor registration deadline is Friday, October 18. Sponsorships are $300 for GAOI member-organizations; $350 for non members. All sponsors will be recognized at the event and on the GAOI web site and marketing materials leading up to the event. Attached please find the draft agenda.
