Nov. 9, 2020
"Unique times" have forced the American Boiler Manufacturers Association to convert the upcoming annual conference into its first-ever hybrid meeting with online options.

PRESS RELEASE

Vienna, VA – November 5, 2020 – ABMA is proceeding with the 2021 Annual Meeting, January 15-18, at the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort in Bonita Springs, FL. The ABMA Annual Meeting is a key event for stakeholders in the boiler manufacturing industry. This event is one of the most cost-effective educational and networking opportunities available in the industry.

“While we are excited to bring our members together in Florida, we realize these are unique times and have converted to a hybrid event to offer all sessions virtually in addition to the in-person experience,” remarked ABMA President Scott Lynch.   

ABMA has been working closely with the Hyatt Coconut Point to ensure safety is prioritized and our goal is to create a safe but worthwhile experience for all participants. The Hyatt has instituted safety guidelines and protocols that are being updated as the situation evolves and will be an important part of our overall safety focus. ABMA has also created initial COVID19 safety guidelines that will be used in partnership with those of the Hyatt.

The schedule has been slightly altered and the meeting will look a little different, but still feature opportunities to learn about current & emerging industry trends and provide networking opportunities for members to enhance and grow their business relationships.

At this point, the Annual Meeting in-person event is set to begin on Friday night with a special all-attendee event and the program will begin on Saturday morning. We will conclude the meeting with the General Session, featuring Alan Beaulieu, ITR Economics on Monday at 12:30 pm.

The meeting will still feature our golf tournament, which will take place on Sunday afternoon.

All presentations will be live streamed on a virtual platform. Recorded versions of all content will be available within 48 hours of the live presentation and available for 30 days after the meeting for all registrants. For this meeting, ABMA has confirmed ITR Economics and BlueEQ for keynote presentations.

More details on the agenda and meeting features will be announced this month, so check ABMA.com/annual-meeting for updates.
