International Roofing Expo 2008


The roofing industry's most highly anticipated annual event was again held at the Las Vegas Convention Center, squeezing in between World of Concrete and CONEXPO-CON/AGG!

As has long been the tradition, education and innovation were at the fore, with over 48 conference programs including, 17 technical, 5 workplace safety and 26 business related sessions. Many of these sessions carry NRCA/CRCA certification that contractors require for insurance and tender consideration.

Also new for 2008 was the New Product Pavillion, an excellent area highlighting the industry's newest most innovative and cost effective products since the 2007 IRE. China featured noticeably this year also, with a dedicated section showcasing their products and practices.

Another informative aspect of the IRE is the Live Demonstrations and product clinics that occur. Held on the exhibition floor in a mock-up jobsite techniques and equipment were shown off by Gaco Western, Johns Mansville and other leading industry suppliers. Fasteners, asphalt melters, tear-off and hoisting devices were all available for attendees to examine and investigate.

With so much happening in Vegas you may be forgiven for missing IRE this year, but mark February 3 - 5 on your calendar for 2009!
