The 42nd annual Western Roofing Expo was the best yet in terms of attendance. More than 3,500 roofing contractors from throughout the region converged on Las Vegas last week for the Western Roofing Contractors Association’s signature annual event. That total well surpassed attendance figures for the 2015 Expo.
Highlights included innovative new product releases on the show floor, dozens of educational seminars, and formal and informal networking opportunities.
The Association also formally elected Brad Baker, owner of Professional Roofing in Bellevue, Idaho, the next president and named Michael Tory, of Tory’s Roofing & Waterproofing in Hawaii, immediate former president.
Roofing contractors, suppliers and manufacturers also helped raise money for the Davis Memorial Foundation, which provides academic scholarships to deserving college students across the western United States with the annual welcome party and silent auction, and golf tournament.
