With the radiant industry posting another record year, the Radiant Panel Association’s Annual Conference and Trade Show is set to take place April 17-19, 1997, at the Rhode Island Convention Center in Providence, RI. Keynoting the event is PM’s editorial director Jim Olsztynski. Also speaking at the event is PM’s Frank Blau.

Along with awards for innovation, retrofit installations and commercial applications, new categories include electric systems and a split in the residential category at 5,000 sq. ft.
