Big plans for the Big Easy

NRCA heads to New Orleans for its 131st annual convention and the 2018 International Roofing Expo


NRCA invites you to enjoy an exciting week of education, networking and culture during its 131st annual convention Feb. 4-8 in New Orleans. Held in conjunction with Irving, Texas-based Informa's 2018 International Roofing Expo® (IRE), the convention will take place at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center—the sixth largest convention facility in the U.S.—and the Hilton New Orleans Riverside.

Roofing professionals will have the opportunity to attend educational programs and mingle on the expo floor while learning about the most recent industry trends and technology. In addition, several off-site events will offer participants an opportunity to perform a charitable act of service; test their athletic skills; and experience the music, cuisine and beauty of New Orleans at historical venues near the Mississippi River.

"Every year, NRCA's annual convention and the IRE bring roofing professionals from around the world together to network and learn," says Reid Ribble, NRCA's CEO. "We anticipate this year's event may be the biggest yet, and we look forward to interacting with our members and other professionals during NRCA's educational programs, entertainment opportunities and awards ceremony, where the best in the industry will receive well-deserved recognition. Big plans have been made for the convention and expo, and we hope you will make plans to join us in New Orleans next month!"
