Hanley Wood Exhibitions announced that the 2014 International Roofing Expo (IRE) welcomed a record-setting audience to Las Vegas’ Mandalay Bay Convention Center, February 26-28 — reinforcing its position as the industry’s largest and most innovative roofing construction and maintenance tradeshow.
“With a fresh sense of optimism and excitement, the 2014 International Roofing Expo drew the largest attendance in the show’s history,” said Tracy Garcia, CEM, IRE show director. “In addition, the tradeshow floor was the largest since 2008.”
Returning to Las Vegas, the annual tradeshow and conference drew a total attendance of 9,568; a 13 per cent increase over the 2013 show in San Antonio, and a staggering 20 per cent increase in verified attendees over 2013. Participants came from all segments of the roofing industry and attendees represented industry-leading roofing and construction companies from across the globe.
First time registrants made up 35 per cent of all attendees. “I thought the overall quality of the show and the courses offered were very good, while the exhibitors were very helpful and informative,” said Phillip M. Conroy, project manager at Kalkreuth Roofing and Sheet Metal. “This was my first year attending the show and the trip was definitely worth my while.”
