About the Event

The 2024 RETA National Conference will cover a wide array of topics for professional development of industrial refrigeration operators and technicians. The conference spans 4-days filled with hands-on training, workshops, technical presentations, networking events, and an expansive exhibit hall. No matter your level of experience or position within the Industrial Refrigeration Industry, our educational conference has an all-encompassing and comprehensive program dedicated to improving your knowledge and success.

Who should attend?

All professionals, students and experts working in the Industrial Refrigeration Industry, seeking continued education, and networking with industry professionals should attend our conference. Gain valuable insight, training, and earn PDH (Professional Development Hours) credits to maintain your certification designation.

Why should I attend?

As the Industrial Refrigeration Industry continues to expand, the demand for certified technicians becomes more competitive. The RETA National Conference is the largest gathering of Refrigerating Engineers and Technicians, not only offering networking activities and events, but also providing extensive education and training opportunities. Arrive early and take the CARO, CIRO, CRST or CRES Review Course Saturday-Monday, October 19-21, before the RETA National Conference kicks off. Sign up to take one of the review courses and finish with taking the certification exam at conference. The only way to stay ahead in this industry is to position yourself as a leader. RETA certification exams are accredited by ANSI (American National Standards Institute), which requires continual analyzing by an organization whose sole mission is to establish, maintain and assure that the highest industry standards are set and met in a continuous and ongoing basis.
