With a 15 percent attendance boost, the Roof Coating Manufacturers Association said its recent conference was a big success.

The July 14-17 International Roof Coatings Conference in Baltimore attracted 127 people who represented 81 companies and organizations from seven countries. Thirteen speakers were on hand to educate attendees on industry issues. Sessions included discussions on energy efficiency and codes, sustainability and “cool” roofing.

“RCMA is very pleased with the interest and strong registration rates for this conference,” said RCMA Executive Director John Ferararo. “We hope to grow this conference even more in the years to come, and we look forward to hearing feedback from conference attendees and the broader roof coatings industry to continue to improve on the success of this event.”
