BOSTON ‘ The New England Fuel Institute’s (NEFI) 34th North American Heating and Energy Expo, held this June 7 and 8, was a resounding success, with a bustling show floor full of attendees and hundreds of exhibitors.
“The NEFI Energy Expo exemplifies what our association is about,” said NEFI President and CEO Michael Trunzo. “At a time when the energy industry is facing daunting challenges, it is important to be able to bring the retail Oilheat dealers together with the industry that supports them–major oil companies, wholesale suppliers and affiliated industry companies that make the equipment, products and administrative programs. It’s all an effort to help the retail Oilheat company become more efficient, effective and profitable.
“Thousands of attendees had the opportunity to learn more about the latest products and services available to them from more than 200 exhibitors, while also engaging in interactive business and technical sessions with leaders in the industry,” Trunzo continued.
Featured technical speaker Richard Trethewey, the home heating expert from PBS’ “This Old House,” was one of many session hosts to lead a lively presentation before a packed room of participants. The Expo Summit business sessions were similarly well attended, with the keynote session led by Petroleum Marketers Association of America (PMAA) President Dan Gilligan on the industry’s latest legislative efforts in Washington, D.C.
