The International Roofing Expo, with the full support of the NRCA, is excited to launch a virtual conference and expo in 2021 in addition to their physical event. The virtual event will be held on March 2-4, and the in-person event is rescheduled from April to August 10-12 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas.
“We are thrilled about the addition of a complementary virtual event and being able to provide the industry with more of the education and content they look forward to every year. By transitioning our live event to August and launching our virtual event in March, we’re able to create an opportunity to connect our audiences across multiple channels throughout the year,” says Ray Giovine, Group Director for the International Roofing Expo/Informa Markets.
The IRE 2021 Virtual Conference and Expo will allow the industry to share best practices for today’s market, discuss the latest trends, and see the newest products and technology hitting the market. The virtual conference and expo will feature both live and on-demand educational sessions, a virtual exhibit directory, a product showcase, and a networking platform where attendees and exhibitors can engage with each other via chat, video call, and more. The in-person event, held August 10-12, 2021, will continue to include a large exhibition hall featuring the industry’s top manufacturers and suppliers, a robust conference program, and unparalleled networking events for attendees and exhibitors.
“We were fortunate to secure the same exhibit halls for our new dates to make the transition easy for our exhibitors, speakers, and attendees,” said Giovine. “We are really excited about our digital offering, but equally excited to return to the show floor this August.”
The International Roofing Expo will adapt Informa AllSecure, which is Informa’s approach to ensuring the highest standards of safety, hygiene, cleanliness, and quality for operating events. In addition to AllSecure, the show will follow all local government guidelines, as well as the Mandalay Bay Convention Center guidelines. Additional information on the virtual event will be available on the IRE website in the coming weeks.
