If you’re in the roofing and construction industry, then you’re more than familiar with the International Roofing Expo’s annual trade show. What you may not be familiar with, is the logistics behind the transfer of information from exhibitor to attendee. That’s where you come in.
You could be a large, industry-leading organization or simply (but just as powerfully) the local roofing company down the street. Regardless . . . there are probably ideas, lessons, skills or processes that you’ve acquired that the rest of the industry could benefit from! Become a presenter and share those ideas!
The 2021 IRE Program is extending the deadline to submit a proposal for the upcoming show in Las Vegas, NV at Mandalay Bay Convention Center, February 24-26, 2021. To be considered for the 2021 IRE Program, submit a topic for consideration through the Call for Presentation link. The deadline to submit a topic proposal and biography is April 6, 2020. We realize this is the 11th hour but take a chance and get your entry in.
They are looking for various types of presentations. Maybe you have content that can immediately be implemented in the workplace, or you can teach a how-to class that stimulates and provides attendees with a new skill, technology or process. If you have a topic that is innovative, stimulating and cutting-edge for the construction and roofing industry . . . you need to be presenting at the IRE 2021!
Please be advised, they are not looking for product pitches, they are looking for presentations with content that can further enhance the roofing and construction industry as a whole.
Final acceptance will be based on (but not limited to) the course's ability to meet submission standards, overall program/track specification and industry need. Additionally, the IRE Advisory Committee (made up of NRCA staff, Informa Markets representatives, industry leaders and editors) will review the proposed topics for relevancy and industry feedback. All approved courses will be submitted for continuing education and will, therefore, require syllabus handouts for attendees. Please note that vendors must be exhibitors in the show to be considered for a presentation.
To be considered as a speaker, please complete the 2021 Call for Presentations Online Form. If you would like to submit a content idea but do not have a presentation proposal, please complete the 2020 Suggestion Form.
