DALLAS — The 2014 International Roofing Expo (IRE) has unveiled a new, redesigned website aimed at enhancing the online experience of trade show participants with a bold new look, simplified navigation and improved usability.

Located at www.theroofingexpo.com, the new web interface provides technical, aesthetic and graphical upgrades, making navigation fast and easy for attendees and exhibitors.

“The International Roofing Expo continually strives to provide the best to our attendees and exhibitors," said IRE Group Director Lindsay Roberts. “The extensive upgrade and integration enables users to find information quickly and easily, ultimately bringing even more value to their show experience.”

The website also provides centralized content; upgraded scheduling and planning; exhibitor search features with advanced search capabilities; integrated hotel reservations; simplified registration (coming in mid-September); user dashboards; and an extensive FAQ section.

Current exhibitors will also notice significant upgrades to their website experience through a streamlined exhibitor profile platform, allowing them to interactively build an online marketing presence with graphics, company and product information, and videos. Prospective exhibitors will enjoy an easy-to-book exhibit and sponsorship option with online ordering and purchasing.

Attendees and exhibitors will also be able to access the all-new portal section that personalizes each individual’s IRE experience.

“The new website offers incredible information about the show in a manner that is clean and crisp,” said Bill Good, executive vice president of NRCA, the show’s official sponsor. “With the easy-to-use navigation, show information and details, I encourage all of our members to use the website frequently.”

New features and functionality are also in development and will be added on an ongoing basis.

The 2014 International Roofing Expo will be held Feb. 26-28, 2014 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas.
