The Radiant Panel Association will hold two Radfests this year, the first in April and another near Washington, D.C. in October.

Radfest West, scheduled for April 26-27 in Denver, will feature speakers, seminars and a trade show. Attendees can enroll in Radiant Basics and Radiant Precision classes. The evening reception will be held April 26. The next day, industry experts will lead breakfast roundtable discussions on topics such as estimating and solar-powered radiant marketing during RadNet Live, a name borrowed from the RPA's RadNet online bulletin board. The show floor, open from noon to 8 p.m., will have three separate “Pit Stop” areas, featuring 90-minute seminars held throughout the day in addition to the exhibits. Pit Stop topics will include controls, water treatment in hydronic heating systems and electric radiant systems.

An all-day class from the RPA Radiant Outfitters Schools, the Radiant Basics school, covering hydronic radiant heating and electric systems, will be conducted April 26. The Radiant Precision school to be held April 27 will discuss advanced controls used in hydronic radiant heating. It is targeted to contractors or designers interested in working with high-end controls and fine tuning radiant systems. Pre-registration is required for either of these Radiant Outfitters schools.

The RPA Certification Exam will be held 4:30-6:30 p.m., April 26. For information on pre-qualification and registration, visit Visit or call 800-660-7187 for schedules and topics for Pit Stops and the RadNet roundtables, as well as all other RadFest information.
