Host Heidi J. Ellsworth and Spehar discuss new events, initiatives and more regarding the upcoming show, which takes place Feb. 1-3, 2022, in New Orleans.
"We have a full event planned for IRE 2022, which is going to include over 60 education sessions," Spehar said. "That's part of both our conference program and our show floor education.
"We'll have a robust Expo Hall that's got hundreds of the top suppliers and manufacturers showing the latest products and services," she continued. "We'll have some live product demos on the show floor. Some of our product clinics have come back.
"We'll have our product showcase again," Spehar added. "We're going to have those outdoor exhibits again, like the SRS tailgating event. Our networking events are going to be the Welcome Party and First-time Attendees Reception as well as the NRCA events and National Women in Roofing Day."
IRE's Community Day, scheduled for Jan. 31, will be in person, as well.
