The 34th annual conference will forgo last year’s Atlanta location for sunny San Diego, Feb. 8 -10. Those attending can expect to catch up on the latest developments within the pool industry, learn new technical skills, foster new connections through networking and more. Attendees will also have an opportunity to bid on services and products as part of its annual auction, which this year will be hosted by Jay Eaton, manager of Cal Plastering Co. in Phoenix, Arizona. Proceeds from the auction will go toward the NPC’s continuing research efforts, as well as the Rey Perales Memorial Scholarship.
This year the conference will open with 12 classes, separated into three tracks, and will conclude with three consecutive sessions of the extremely popular Pool Shell Primer.
Notable activities will include Young Professionals Meet & Greet, Bike Tour and San Diego sailing tour. This year all 15 presentations will be subtitled in Spanish, providing an additional level of inclusiveness.
