Although the 2021 International Roofing Expo (IRE) may look a bit different due to pandemic precautions, a lot of familiar faces and sights could be seen during the biggest roofing event in the country.

Roofing professionals from across the country gathered at Mandalay Bay to find out the latest innovations and products in the market during the IRE in-person event, taking place Aug. 10-12. Guests could also attend a slew of educational sessions held throughout the day on a wide range of topics, from working in a post-pandemic world to perfecting their sales process. 

In between all that, attendees got back to the face-to-face networking they had been missing out on for the past year at a poolside welcome reception and helped raise funds for the National Roofing Contractors Association's ROOFPAC and SRS Distribution's Raise the Roof foundation.
