The residential metal roofing business is booming as a profitable business opportunity, and the Metal Roofing Alliance (MRA) welcomes roofing professionals to learn more during the International Roofing Expo (IRE).

At the 2022 IRE, the MRA will be hosting its first-ever networking event 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Feb. 2 at the Rivergate Room at the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center.

The event is open to current and potential members, including contractors, distributors, manufacturers and suppliers. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn more about MRA's mission, the benefits of membership and, ultimately, to forge relationships with others in the residential metal roofing industry. Hors d’oeuvres and beverages will be served.

Sponsors of the 2022 MRA Networking Event include Ideal Roofing and Triangle Fastener, with more sponsorship announcements in the works. To RSVP or for event sponsorship information, contact MRA Executive Director Renee Ramey at
