The Learning Lab

Learning Lab by Road to California

Sponsored by Road to California, the Learning Lab offers a totally FREE, hands-on demonstration zone on the h+h americas showroom floor. 

The Learning Lab creates the opportunity for our family of exhibitors to demonstrate their tools and products to attendees and other exhibitors. Learning directly from the manufacturers generates awareness and creates an educational experience separate from h+h americas business and master class schedule.

To enhance the learning experience, Learning Lab participants may purchase an optional kit to utilize during the session.
