Organizers of next month’s International Roofing Expo are adding show-themed social networking Web sites to keep attendees informed on the latest show happenings.

Attendees, exhibitors, press, vendors and anybody in the roofing industry are encouraged to check out the show’s pages on Facebook Twitter  and LinkedIn.

“The addition of our social media sites is an aggressive move to educate our attendees and exhibitors,“ said Donna Bellantone, expo director.  “We want our show participants to use it not only for the most up-to-date show news, but also to connect with fellow industry colleagues.”

The sites launched May 15, 2009.

“These social media sites provide a wonderful avenue for our members to communicate with each other as well as with show management,” said Bill Good, executive vice President of the National Roofing Contractors Association, the show’s official sponsor.  “I encourage all of our members to join the show’s Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn pages.”

The roofing expo takes place Feb. 22-24 at Morial Convention Center in New Orleans.
