DALLAS - The 2010 International Roofing Expo has issued a Call for Presentations to all educators, consultants and specialists from around the world who want to share their knowledge and business expertise as presenters for the educational conference program.

Being held Feb. 22-24, 2010, at the Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, the conference program is recognized worldwide as the leading educational venue presenting the latest trends in the roofing industry.

Seeking expert speakers with proven, dynamic presentation skills and in-depth knowledge, sessions are 90 minutes in length and should contain timely, practical information that can be immediately implemented in the workplace.

“We take great care in selecting the absolute highest caliber of speakers,” said Brandi McElhaney, Conference Manager of International Roofing Expo. “The educational conference program is an important component of this Expo, adding opportunities for attendees to learn the best practices in the industry.”

Topic submissions should focus on applications-oriented, real world, problem-solving topics and be free of promotional materials to sell a product or service.

The multi-track educational program includes technical and workplace safety classes, as well as business-related sessions including leadership/management, green building, legal/HR, money matters, sales/service and general business. The primary audience of the educational conference program includes commercial and residential roofing contractors, architects, designers, consultants, building owners, facility managers, manufacturers, suppliers, owners, CEOs, general managers, sales professionals, estimators, superintendents and foremen.

“Industry professionals interested in participating in the conference program are encouraged to submit their proposals as soon as possible,” said Bill Good, Executive Vice President of NRCA, the show’s official sponsor. “The conference offers speakers the opportunity to establish their position as industry experts to a broad range of roofing professionals.”
