IRE 2020 Recap

Big Past. Bigger Future.

Roofing leaders from across the world descended onto Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas from Feb. 4-6 for the International Roofing Expo®. The IRE returned to the city for the first time since 1988 and had another record-breaking year with 17,060 in attendance. The exhibit hall continued to expand with 170,980 square feet of booth space featuring over 541 companies displaying thousands of products and services. 

“Cutting-edge education, influential show-floor demos, and emerging technology helped to drive record numbers at IRE 2020,” said Ray Giovine, Group Director for IRE.

“The 2020 IRE has once again exceeded attendees’ expectations. With a record crowd, record number of exhibitors and record attendance at the education classes, the IRE has become the must attend event of the year! Plan now to attend the 2021 IRE in Las Vegas,” said Reid Ribble, NRCA ‘s CEO.
