What a great way to begin the new year — at InspectionWorld Las Vegas. ASHI's annual conference was a huge success with the best attendance since 2006. More than 625 home inspectors enjoyed an outstanding educational experience, quality networking and a busy expo hall.
Attendees were provided with 45 education courses covering a variety of pertinent topics ranging from basic to advanced technical, specialty/diversification and business management. Four pre-conference courses were held as well as a commercial building inspection course, added as a post-conference course.
Between classes there were vendor showcases on the schedule as well as special events: i.e. Planning Your Chapter Peer Review, Inspector Tool Time, Ask the Experts panel discussion and ladder safety demonstrations and training providing an exchange of ideas and discussion.
Attendees enjoyed breakfast, lunch and breaks in the Expo Hall. The Expo kicked off with the ribbon cutting ceremony, followed by an evening of wining, dining and visiting with the exhibitors at the opening night reception.
The President's Gala was held in the beautiful Champagne Ballroom in the Paris Resort. Attendees gathered at the annual business luncheon for the installation of the new Board of directors and officers and awards ceremony. Many attended planned tours of the Las Vegas area.
The event-packed InspectionWorld schedule kept the attendees busy as they gathered with their colleagues and shared good times making connections that last a lifetime.

Plan now to make more connections for learning and camaraderie in the music city. ASHI's annual conference in 2014 will be held on January 12-15, 2014 at the Nashville Renaissance Hotel and Nashville Convention Center.
