This year, roofing professionals from throughout the world gathered in sunny Orlando, Fla., for NRCA's 125th Annual Convention, held Feb. 20-24, and Hanley Wood's 2012 International Roofing Expo (IRE), held Feb. 22-24. The IRE once again was a success and not only had a new location, Orlando—a departure from Las Vegas—it also experienced an increase in attendance.
Total attendance at the IRE was 8,382, a 3 percent increase from the 2011 show in Las Vegas. This was the second consecutive year the show experienced an attendance increase.
The convention kicked off Tuesday, Feb. 21, with the National Roofing Legal Resource Center's Annual Breakfast Program.
