The Roofing Alliance announces that Informa Exhibitions, Dallas, Texas, has enhanced its strategic partnership to include ongoing annual contributions and recognizes them as a Governor Level member.
Informa Exhibitions, who presents the International Roofing Expo (IRE) yearly, is committed to being a part of the roofing industry. Show Director Rich Russo said, “Informa wants to invest in the strong work that the Roofing Alliance is doing. It is important to us to support the roofing industry and all the good deeds, research and thought leadership supported by the Roofing Alliance.”
The Roofing Alliance has attracted some of the best and brightest roofing professionals in the industry. Together, they select and provide oversight of programs and funding for progressive research that shapes, improves, and advances the roofing industry in four key areas: education and training, technology, sustainability and philanthropy.  
“Our relationship with Informa is critical and we are very happy to have their commitment to provide support. Participation is vital within the Roofing Alliance, and much of the organization’s strength comes from its broad base of supportive contributors,” said Executive Director Alison L. LaValley, CAE. “The IRE and our Student Competition are important events for the industry. We are appreciative of Informa’s past support and look forward to their continued involvement year-round.”
