I hope you’ll be joining us in Las Vegas Feb. 16-18 for the 2011 International Roofing Expo. The tradeshow floor will feature an array of new products and services from approximately 380 exhibiting companies in more than 900 booths, and we’re anxious to see what’s new this year. One hot spot that rounds up a lot of new technology is the Product Showcase, located on the show floor in booth 1362. You can see, try and compare the latest cool and green products.

That’s what the IRE is all about - education. Of course, this year’s IRE offers a great lineup of educational sessions, and attendees can choose from 43 knowledge-building sessions in eight tracks. But everywhere you turn there are learning opportunities, including Live Demonstrations located on the show floor in booth 2260 and Exhibitor Product Clinics. Exhibiting companies such as OMG Roofing Products, Soprema, EagleView Technologies and Equipter will present dynamic and interactive demos of their products, equipment and materials.

New technology will also be the focus of The Tech Know How Show, found in booth 750, which features presentations by principals from eight industry-leading technology companies.

I hope you’ll be joining us out in LasVegas. If you’ll be at the show, stop by the Roofing Contractor booth (booth 438) to say hello.
