We're turning the traditional contractor seminar & trade show
on its HE∀D.

If you think some of the national meetings are stale, you are not alone. It’s a message we hear all of the time. And you’re right. Same format. Same speakers. Same cities.

How about an entirely new format?

Service Nation Inc. has joined forces with the The ACHR News, Plumbing & Mechanical Magazine, and Reeves Journal to launch the first new conference and trade show for residential contractors in more than two decades.

Keynote: Derek Daly

International Racing Champion, Best-Selling Author, and TV’s Face of Motor Sports

Irish driving legend Derek Daly is the epitome of the Complete Champion. From the Victory Circle to the Announcer’s Desk, Hall of Fame Race Car Driver and Network Television Color Analyst Daly has spent nearly three decades as the face of the motorsport world.

Derek’s professional racing career spanned 17 years and his experiences are nothing short of breathtaking. Daly’s story is one that precious few have lived to tell. In 1984, Derek suffered one of the hardest crash impacts that a driver had ever survived when he hit the wall at Michigan International Speedway at 212 MPH. After fourteen surgeries and three years in therapy, he returned to full-time racing. He competed in the 12 Hours of Sebring - one of the premier motorsport endurance races in the US – and won the race two years in a row!

Emcee: Larry Taylor

A Word From BNP Media's
Mike Murphy and Bob Miodonski

Current trade show formats and educational settings are becoming stale and much less effective than what is demanded in this dynamic age. Change hits every aspect of everyone’s business — shows and events are no exception!

Service World Expo attendees will participate in a more appealing and effective design that aids retention and helps them translate ideas into action when they get back home. On the flip side, exhibitors and sponsors want more from their exposure. Service World Expo allows and encourages a total immersion experience for everyone. You’ll like the change you see in Las Vegas!”

This Show is Not for Everyone.

Exhibitors must bring it—new product launches, interactive displays, demonstrations—the activity that contractors thrive on. We have limited the opportunity accordingly.

Tropicana’s $180 million renovation
turning heads

The history of the Las Vegas Strip has been a tumultuous one, defined as much by the wrecking ball as by the construction of some of the world’s largest and most expensive resorts. That economic model, the primary force driving decades of tourism growth for Las Vegas, came to a crashing halt in the downturn as financing for new resorts dried up, leaving casino owners with two options: do nothing or renovate.
