The sixth gathering of Wetheads, Wetstock VI, will take place Saturday, June 4, at the Hilton Minneapolis/St. Paul Airport. The cost is $139, and it includes a Thursday seminar on sales and marketing by Uponor Wirsbo's John Barba, as well as a tour of the company's facilities on Friday. Wirsbo also will host a tent party tradeshow, and fun and games at a cocktail and dinner party at the hotel.

Wetstock is famous as a relaxing retreat for people who are passionate about hydronics. The 15 roundtable discussions are informal: no moderators, no corporate sponsors, and no time limits. Discussion topics include: boilers vs. water heaters; business advertising; calculating heating loads; CO testing and measuring; control strategies; ethics; European hydronics; fuel and venting issues; hiring and training; hydro-air system; indoor-air quality; insulation issues; marketing; open vs. closed systems; overcoming price objections; pricing strategies; professionalism; radiant slab and staple-up; solar opportunities; steam heating; system piping; system treatment and cleaning; and working with DIYers.

“It really is a wonderful experience,” says event founder Dan Holohan. “And you'll make contacts with some of the sharpest people in the hydronic heating industry.”
