The Industrial Heating Equipment Association (IHEA) will celebrate its 90th Anniversary at the 2019 Annual Meeting April 29-May 1 at the Lido Beach Resort in Sarasota, Fla.

IHEA members look forward to the camaraderie created by the social events and the thought-provoking topics presented. The meeting provides plenty of opportunity to get involved with important industry-related developments while exploring new business contacts and growing relationships. 

The IHEA Welcome Reception will kick off the event on the pool deck overlooking the beach. The program follows with relevant keynote sessions and committee meetings to discuss association business. Sprinkle in the annual president’s gala, the IHEA golf tournament and discovering local attractions, and it’s the perfect mix of business and pleasure. It’s also a great way to keep current with industry trends and keep in touch with peers.

The beautiful resort is located on one of Florida’s best beaches. The resort is also close to world-famous Siesta Key beach, often voted the best beach in the country. The Lido Beach Resort is just two minutes from the very popular St. Armands Circle, which is filled with restaurants and shops. Complete meeting details and registration information can be found at We hope to see you in Sarasota next April!
