    <span class="style5"> Las Vegas is a popular, if somewhat polarizing, tourist destination. It’s one of the world’s most well-liked vacation spots and <br />fights annually with Orlando, Fla., for the title of top convention city.<br />
    <br />
    However, some people are put off by the garish, over-the-top casinos, gambling and gluttony the city seems to encourage.<br />
    <br />
    Attendees of the International Roofing Expo are not among them. For the third straight year, the expo will be at the Las Vegas <br />Convention Center. The expo was originally to be Jan. 10-12 in San Antonio, but last year, organizers announced they were <br />keeping the show in Las Vegas and again holding it in February.<br />
    <br />
    “The attendees prefer that International Roofing Expo be held in February and continue to be hosted in Las Vegas,” said Bill Good, <br />executive vice president of the National Roofing Contractors Association, which sponsors and holds its annual meeting during the <br />event. “Attendees also prefer Las Vegas 4-to-1 over any other city due to the vast entertainment options, as well as affordable lodging <br />and dining.”<br />
    <br />
    This year’s Roofing Expo will be Feb. 21-23. Hanley-Wood, a media company that owns the expo, said exhibit hall booth sales for the trade show have been strong.<br />
    <br />
    “This promises to be another exciting, must-see event for the roofing construction and maintenance industry,” said expo director <br />Donna Bellantone.<br />
    <br />
  As in past years, the show will have numerous educational seminars, grouped into categories such as technical, general business <br />and money matters. Metal roofing will still be a major focus, with several sessions devoted to the topic.</span></h5>
