Welcome to Roofing Contractor's coverage of the 2021 Virtual International Roofing Expo (IRE), the North American roofing industry’s preeminent annual event. Roofing professionals from around the country and world gather every year to experience and learn the newest products, best practices and innovations essential to success. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic delayed this year’s in-person event until Aug. 10-12 in Las Vegas at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center.
But show organizers have put together a robust schedule of educational programs, product showcases and social/networking events to keep the IRE as the most important roofing event to attend this year. From 10 a.m. March 2 to 6 p.m. March 4 EST show attendees can attend pre-scheduled meetings with vendors, explore the live and on-demand education sessions, book drop-in meetings or browse through the product directory.
The IRE Virtual Edition features both live and on-demand educational sessions, an exhibitor directory, a product directory, and a networking platform where attendees and exhibitors can engage with each other via video chat and more. Those who purchase a pass to the virtual event will automatically receive an Expo Pass for the live edition.
