  • Safe anchoring and ballasting, including best practices in evacuation planning, to keep your tents safe and your code officials happy, with Nick Deninno of B&R Innovations and Michael Tharpe of Rainier Tent.
  • The workforce: A townhall discussion about the labor crisis and what owners and managers can do about it.
  • ICC code update with TRD code consultant Paul Armstrong, PACCS.

Tent Conference is also packed with opportunities for fun networking and socializing, including an old-fashioned cookout, a “TRD Experience” competition, a western-themed saloon dinner and a rodeo, all included in the full registration fee. For an additional fee, join a group wilderness adventure that will include airboat rides, trap and skeet shooting, and swamp buggies.
