Roofing professionals from across the globe gathered in the ‘happiest city on earth’ for the 2016 International Roofing Expo(IRE) from Feb. 17-19. Show organizers said more than 9,500 people and 460 companies visited the IRE show floor, which covered 120,600 square feet of display space at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla.
The overall attendance and number of exhibit booths (1,206) increased slightly from last year’s show in New Orleans, but were substantially higher than the last time Orlando hosted the IRE in 2012, officials said.
Plans are already well underway for the 2017 IRE in Las Vegas, but before you start making your arrangements, the Roofing Contractor team invites you to take a look at our exclusive photo gallery highlights of this year’s show.
