Business Development Resources (BDR), the training and business coaching authority for home services industry professionals, brought together more than 200 home service contractors and industry professionals at SPARK 2022.

SPARK 2022 was presented as a new in-person event focused on giving heating, ventilation, and air conditioning dealers and contractors the opportunity to reconnect with people, refresh their minds, and reignite the dream in their business.

Held in San Antonio Jan. 12-15, the inaugural SPARK event hosted representatives from 95 home service businesses with a combined total annual revenue of $500 million.

“We were inspired to do something special with SPARK 2022, because it’s the first opportunity we’ve had in a couple of years to connect with the BDR family in person,” said Kim Archer, vice president of coaching. “San Antonio offered an ideal setting for an event like this, which is designed to deliver invaluable business insight from trusted experts in a casual, relaxed environment.”

SPARK 2022 featured keynote sessions from comedian and business success expert Ross Shafer and former U.S. Navy SEAL Chad Williams as well as breakout sessions focused on business development in 2022. The event also included local activities such as a private tour of the Alamo and boat cruises along the iconic San Antonio Riverwalk. On the final day of the meeting, collaborative sessions were held, with contractors from around the country sharing what’s working in their home service businesses. Topics  included recruitment, marketing and branding, accessory sales and training.

“The industry leaders who attended SPARK 2022 have had a unique opportunity to relax, refresh and recharge heading into the coming year,” said Archer. “The success of the event has inspired us to jump right into advanced planning for the next SPARK event, which we’re excited to share more information about soon.”
