2011 IRE Assigns More than 87 Percent of Show Floor
The 2011 International Roofing Expo recently concluded its annual Space Draw process, assigning 87 percent of the show floor to 263 companies in 715 booths.
Taking place Feb. 16-18, 2011, in the North Halls at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nev., the show will offer roofing contractors, builders, remodelers, building owners, facility managers, and architects a comprehensive preview of the roofing construction and maintenance marketplace.
“Exceeding our most optimistic projections, we saw a 10 percent increase in booths assigned during Space Draw,” said Donna Bellantone, Director of the Expo. “Attendees should really be energized by the impressive list of companies assigned to 71,500 net square feet of exhibits.” Making up the 263 companies who have reserved space are key manufacturers and distributors such as ABC Supply Co., CertainTeed, GAF, Firestone Building Products, Johns Manville Roofing Systems, OMG Roofing Products, Owens Corning, Soprema, 3M Industrial Mineral Products Division and Georgia Pacific, to name a few.
Exhibitors returning to the show after an absence of a year or more include Natural Light Energy Systems, Roof Drain De-Icing Systems, PABCO Roofing Products, ASC Building Products/AEP SPAN, and Graco Inc.
Participating in Space Draw for the first time included companies such as Palfinger North America, Super Anchor Safety, Domestic Bank Home Improvement Lending, EcoStar LLC, Franklin International, Hot Edge, Ski Slope Gutter Mesh, Lucas Granules, Master Pack, Marco Plastics Skylites, Roofing Contractor Marketing, Roof Barrier, SRS Energy and Steelscape.
“It is a testament to the strength of the show and the industry that so many companies made an early and decisive commitment to exhibit,” said Bill Good, Executive Vice President of NRCA, the show’s official sponsor. “The exhibitors' enthusiasm and confidence brings a positive energy to the show.”
