Restoration Winter Break 2024 Conference Highlight Details and Blog Available!


Winter Break 2024 held in Bonita Springs Florida from February 1-3rd at the Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott was another sold out conference!

Winter Break 2024 was rebranded to appeal to a wider multi disciplinary Restoration industry audience,  and attracted attendees from all over the US (including Hawaii) Australia, and the EU!

Restoration Winter Break 2024 following in the footsteps of the last 4 events from the 2020 & 2022 technical Mold  assessment and remediation conferences in Deerfield Beach Florida and the 2023 Andy Ask Building Science Symposium and Lessons Learned Hurricane Workshop hosted by The DYOJO in Naples Florida was a sold out event!

The theme for Restoration Winter Break 2024 was based on the rebranding of the event as The Sunshine State Customer Intimate Summit. The 2 1/2 day event included a pre conference technical workshop on Feb 1st , which rolled into the “Technical program” on Feb 2nd and a new dynamic for Winter Break, a” Business program “ on Feb 3rd.

The technical and business program allowed the 25 prominent industry presenters and subject matter experts to address the conference theme of, “Pick your partners, Choose your projects and Collaborate for Win-Win” from different perspectives.

The overall theme addressed the challenges and offered solutions  for  getting the scope right with the chosen partners, to documentation of the project through best practices, ultimately leading to happy clients who pay their bills on time!

Tramex Moisture Meters celebrating its 50th Golden Anniversary year was the Marquis Sponsor for the 2024 Winter Break. IAQradio+ was the exclusive media sponsor for the conference. Cliff “Z-man” Zlotnik and Jon Isaacson of The DYOJO were the conference bloggers.

A notable Winter Break highlight was John Downey who was the lead moderator for the conference program, was John’s decision to make his retirement announcement at this year’s Winter Break.

Downey gave a heartfelt speech at the Winter Break Banquet and Networking Dinner on February 2nd held at the La Fontana Banquet Room at DeRomos Ristorante at the Bonita Bay Promenade in Bonita Springs. Winter Break host and conference facilitator Pete Consigli made Downey the Banquet’s Guest of Honor!

The news article on Downey’s retirement includes details on his iconic career in the cleaning and restoration industry over the past 4 decades!

Several other notable changes to Winter Break 2024 was the addition of a spouse registration, an evening hospitality suite and dedicated cigar smoking area for the attendee’s relaxation and networking at a high level after the conclusion of the formal conference daily activities.

Other notable highlights were Phil Rosebrook’s return in the legendary Donnybrook yellow blazer he wore as the moderator of the “Vendor Program vs. End User” debate as part of RIA conventions and conferences from 2007-2008.

Tramex donated two CME X5 moisture meters valued at over $1,000 each to raffle off at the end of the Rosebrook moderated Insurance Industry panel that closed out Winter Break on Feb 3rd!
