Membership Climbing, ABMA Releases More Details on BOILER 2024

Nov. 18, 2023
Panels on Women in the Boiler Industry and State of the Industry highlight newly released schedule.

By SCOTT LYNCH, ABMA President & CEO, and SHAUNICA JAYSON, ABMA Marketing Director

The American Boiler Manufacturers Association (ABMA) is excited to announce our inaugural Women in the Boiler Industry Panel and Networking Luncheon at BOILER 2024, set for next spring at the Gaylord Rockies outside Denver, CO.

Celebrating the growing participation and contributions of women in our industry, this event will provide a platform for several accomplished women to detail their journeys for attendees. Their stories of challenges and successes are already inspiring future generations in their respective professional worlds, so this panel will undoubtedly engage with our audience, as well.

Scheduled for May 1-3, 2024, ABMA’s Boiler Technology Conference & Expo will also include key insights and technical innovations, shared in the following sessions: 

  • Enhanced SCR Systems to Address Today's Operational Challenges;
  • Firetube vs. Watertube – The Right Boiler Type for Your Application;
  • Practical Applications for Hydrogen Firing in Industrial & Utility Size Boilers;
  • Installing & Maximizing Ultra Low NOx Boiler Burners – Project Case Studies;
  • Rental Boiler Market – The Need, The Process, & The Equipment;
  • A Day in the Life of a Boiler Technician – Immersive Role Play;
  • Secondary Heat Recovery – Increasing Efficiency & Reducing Emissions;
  • Boiler Sales Process – Partnering with a Representative.

On the exhibit floor, ABMA is once again setting the stage for the largest gathering of the boiler supply chain, with a focus on educating and connecting with those in the purchasing, operation, and maintenance of boilers. BOILER 2024 promises more exhibitors, more attendees, more networking opportunities, more enlightening sessions and tours—bigger, yes, but more importantly, better.

In response to soaring demand, ABMA has expanded the exhibit area by almost 50% and already secured over 85 exhibitors, surpassing BOILER 2022. We now expect roughly 100 industry leaders will showcase their innovative products that continue to advance technology in the boiler room. We also expect attendance now of well over 1,000 attendees.

At BOILER 2024, if a product is in the boiler room, you'll find it here. General registration is now open, so mark your calendars and secure your spot for this unparalleled event. Together, we all advance and elevate the boiler industry to create safer, more efficient boiler rooms. (Special early-bird pricing for attendees is available until January 31, 2024.)

Earlier this fall, ABMA announced that Staff Sgt. Travis Mills (US Army-Ret.) of the 82nd Airborne will kick-off BOILER 2024 as the opening keynote speaker. A "recalibrated" veteran, motivational speaker, actor, author, and advocate for veterans and amputees, Mills is also the Founder and CEO of the Travis Mills Foundation, formed to benefit and assist post-911 veterans who have been injured in service to our nation. 

Also new to the BOILER 2024 program will be ABMA's first State of the Boiler Industry Leadership Panel, which will be featured during our general session on May 3rd. ABMA President & CEO, Scott Lynch will moderate the panel of industry leaders discussing the opportunities and challenges in the boiler industry including the increasing rate of boiler innovation, investments in renewable technology, product education and workforce challenges, among other topics.

Of particular note, ABMA also announced in November that its membership has now reached a record 142 members, up from 99 members in 2020. This growth is due to recent expansion efforts to include hydronics and more recently to engage manufacturer representatives, as well. 

ABMA has transformed over the last five years to focus beyond the manufacturers and engage more and more of the supply chain. Those initial efforts culminated with our inaugural BOILER 2022 offering, and can now be seen gaining greater momentum with BOILER 2024.
