DALLAS — Hanley Wood Exhibitions has announced the launch of a new mobile app for the 2014 International Roofing Expo (IRE). The free app is available now for iPhone, iPad, Android and Blackberry users.

The 2014 IRE will be held Feb. 26-28 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas. The event is designed to attract commercial and residential roofing professionals and help them stay abreast of market directions, trends and cutting-edge technology. The show is sponsored by the National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA). The official show publication is Roofing Contractor magazine. The official digital destination and official residential publication is Replacement Contractor magazine.

The 2014 IRE mobile app offers several new features to help users plan for the event, including registration and hotel reservations. The mobile app also allows users to easily navigate the show floor while attending IRE. Users can access exhibitor lists and profiles, the interactive floor plan, the conference schedule, session details and speaker profiles. It also offers a personalized planner that can help attendees organize their IRE schedules — all in a matter of minutes.

“With the free mobile app, you can quickly find the IRE floor plan, exhibitor details, educational sessions and more from any web-enabled mobile device —  anywhere, anytime,” said Tracy Garcia, CEM, director of the IRE. “The easy-to-use, interactive capabilities will enhance your show experience, so download as soon as you can.” 

The IRE mobile app can be found by searching “IRE” in the Apple App Store, Google Play or Blackberry World.
