The 2024 International Roofing Expo is just a few months away! Join us this year in Las Vegas, Nevada from February 6-8, 2024, for the largest roofing and exteriors event in all of North America. The exhibit is almost sold out, so if you haven’t yet committed to attending, don’t wait much longer.
With over sixty education sessions this year and hundreds of exhibitors, IRE is the best place to expand your knowledge and gain a competitive edge in the industry. Whether you’ve been in roofing for three months or 30 years, the program at IRE provides skill-building and practical solutions to take back to your business. You won’t want to miss RCS Influencer Trent Cotney’s insights, along with other industry professionals, into the state of the industry for residential and commercial roofing and what is driving products and innovations in the marketplace.
Tuesday morning, join the National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA) at 7:45 a.m. to see how energy codes have reduced energy use in the last 50 years and what you can be doing to reduce the energy use of your customer’s building. In a separate seminar, the NRCA will work to address the labor shortages in the industry. Join them for a discussion on how to identify, energize and recruit employees and what your business can be doing to certify roofing employees into a growing career.
Looking for more specialized discussions? Improve your sales success when you join Scott Siegal, president at Certified Contractors Network, Tuesday afternoon to discuss a range of topics for closing sales and using technology to improve productivity. Or add to your installation expertise and understand why standing seam systems are superior in this standing seam basics session with IRE’s Building Specialist, Tony Blue.
Metal is sure to be a big topic of conversation this year! Presenters from the Metal Construction Association and Metal Roofing Alliance will be discussing best practices for metal shingle installation and demonstrating techniques for on-site roll forming. Don’t miss Roof Hugger and McElroy Metals late Tuesday afternoon as they discuss the nuances of retrofitting existing roofing systems with more sustainable metal systems.
Exhibitor-presented seminars have not been announced yet, but as always, you’ll have a chance to participate in small-group show floor sessions to expand your technical skills and learn from the exhibitor community. With the attendance of more than 10,000 roofing professionals, you’ll have the chance to expand your knowledge and your network. You don’t want to miss it!
