The Radiant Panel Association will hold its Annual National Conference and Radiant Exposition on its own next year instead of in conjunction with ISH North America, but will still actively promote the Atlanta event.

Next year’s conference and REX will be held Aug. 13-15 at the Schaumburg Convention Center in suburban Chicago. ISH North America is scheduled for Oct. 1-3 in Atlanta.

At RPA’s annual meeting in Hartford, CT, Executive Director Larry Drake told the group that it will still lend its name in support of ISH NA and it will help promote the show, develop radiant seminars and host a booth exhibit.
