Even though the 2017 roofing expo just ended, organizers are already planning for next year’s event.

The International Roofing Expo is soliciting presentation proposals for the Feb. 6-8, 2018, show, scheduled to take place in New Orleans.

“We are looking for innovative presentations across a variety of roofing topics to fill the three-day program,” said Brandi McElhaney, senior conference manager. “We encourage industry experts to submit a proposal that offers challenging, substantive and original material on relevant topics and issues facing roofing professionals today.”

Proposals should include information that can be quickly implemented into attendees’ businesses and have enough material to fill 90 minutes. Session topics could include management, human resources, sales and money issues, officials say.

Submissions should be received by April 3.

“The IRE is an opportunity for experts from the roofing industry to share their knowledge of the latest roofing industry trends with fellow roofing professionals at the industry’s largest and most anticipated industry event,” said Reid Ribble, CEO of the National Roofing Contractors Association, the show’s official sponsor. “NRCA members and other roofing industry experts are urged to take advantage of this opportunity and submit their proposals as soon as possible.”
