Roofing professionals seeking a multi-track educational conference program to enrich their business development should register today to attend the 2015 International Roofing Expo® [IRE], February 24-26, 2015, at the Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, Louisiana USA.

Taking place Tuesday through Thursday, 44 in-depth sessions will cover topics designed especially for contractors, owners, CEOs, general managers, building owners, facility managers, foremen, superintendents, architects, engineers, consultants, estimators, salesmen, manufacturers and suppliers.

“Education is an essential component of the International Roofing Expo experience,” said Tracy Garcia, CEM, Director of the IRE. “The conference program is specifically tailored to give roofing professionals the specialized knowledge and training to win more bids and work more profitably.”

With 90% new topics, sessions will cover code revisions, TPO membranes, OSHA updates, technology tools, sustainability requirements and ratings, successful leadership practices, marketing strategies, employee compensation plans, and much more. 40% of the sessions are applicable for spouses who help manage and grow their businesses.

Sessions are 90 minutes in length, allowing attendees to schedule their time to derive the most value from the event and ample time on the show floor to find new products, services, technologies and innovations.

Sessions cover eight educational tracks addressing key roofing segments including technical, workplace safety, leadership/management, green building, legal/HR, money matters, sales/service and general business.

All courses have been approved for RCI, Inc. [RCI] continuing education hours [CEHs] and 22 courses have been approved by Florida’s Department of Business and Professional Regulation and the Construction Industry Licensing Board [DBPR/CILB] [Education Provider No. 0003200].
