RaterFest! 2019 Reviews

"This was definitely a surprisingly informative and useful event. I am glad I made the trek from Nashville to the Rockies to spend a few days with like minded professionals, and will most certainly be back again next year. Covering everything from the latest in HVAC design to standards and QA updates, the topics were useful and on point, and the location and company can't be beat."

- Jonathan Gensler, Revive Energy LLC

"Great event! The sessions left me wanting more and the networking was great. I hope to return annually!"
