Boiler Seminar Subjects Your input please.

Howdy All,
I am putting together some fall boiler seminars and would love getting your opinion on the subject matter. I was thinking of two different seminars
Low Pressure Steam - which would include understanding steam systems, piping, controls, maintenance, and information on steam boilers for breweries and distillers.

Boiler Safety and Maintenance - It would include safety inside a boiler room, CO Dangers, typical maintenance, and cover both hydronic and low pressure steam.

The questions I have is
Which would better serve your needs or wants?
Any other subjects you think should be included.
Which cities would be good venues for the boiler seminars?
Thank you so much for your input and expertise.

    Chicago! Commercial gas burner service for myself. I've got your book but seminars are better.

    Ray, you should go to Riccardo's in Astoria. We always had a great group there.

    They even have a nice screen now. I gave it to them when I did my last steam seminar there. ;-)
    Retired and loving it.

    Both seminar ideas sound good. I'd add Baltimore to the list of cities, but most people avoid the area these days.

    Albuquerque would take a bit of marketing, but we might be able to make that work. I could make Phoenix easily. Denver, Dallas, and Los Angeles are all doable with a bit of notice.
