Are you transitioning your business from the Residential Market to the Commercial Market?

This event is designed to assist you in successfully building your commercial customer base. With such a large increase in the commercial solar market share, we’ve identified a gap in the market for commercial training opportunities for retailers and installers currently in the residential space. We’ve constructed a program packed full of technical and sales training to assist you in transitioning from residential to commercial.


We will be running in depth seminars through February across the country, concluding with drinks and canapes while you network and mingle with other industry professionals and event sponsors. On top this you will get $50 in OSW credit with every ticket purchase & be eligible for 40 CPD points! *
