Why is this a “virtual” event?
The 2020 HEAT Show was originally scheduled for September 21-23 at the Rhode Island Convention Center in Providence, RI. That facility is now being converted to a field hospital for COVID-19 patients. Heating fuel and HVAC providers have adapted admirably to the reality of doing business in the social distancing era while continuing to deliver needed relief to impacted communities along with critical support for health care workers and first responders.   

Though we regret to be unable to bring the HEAT Show back to Rhode Island, we believe that transitioning to this online platform will empower us to present a new and innovative trade show experience while protecting the health and safety of heating and energy industry professionals, their colleagues and customers. The Virtual HEAT Show platform also expands the event’s audience beyond the Northeast region to the entire U.S. and beyond.
How much does the Virtual HEAT Show cost to attend?
The Virtual HEAT Show is completely free to attend. Just register here. Once you do, you will receive email updates about the event. On September 22 & 23, you will be able to log on and experience all that the Virtual HEAT Show has to offer.
