Roofing Industry Expos Provide Opportunities for Growth
Many Knickerbocker Roofing & Paving Co., Inc. employees recently participated in the 35th annual Chicago Roofing Contractors Association (CRCA) Trade Show in Oak Brook on January 18-19, 2018. The Knickerbocker team took the opportunity to listen to industry leaders with expertise in design, building codes, construction law and more. We networked with specifiers, suppliers and manufacturer representatives to stay on the forefront of what is happening in roofing in the Chicagoland area and nationally. The safety seminar was attended by more than twenty-five Knickerbocker field employees and supervisors who spent their morning learning about the latest trends in safety and the most recent changes that provide for their well-being each day on the roof.
With over 2,700 attendees this year, the show continues to be a premier regional event in the roofing and waterproofing industry. Knickerbocker is proud to support and actively participate in the CRCA, including having our own Brian Cronin serving as 2nd Vice President of the organization.
The largest industry show is the International Roofing Expo (IRE), sponsored by the National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA). The IRE will be in New Orleans this year February 6-8. Key members from Knickerbocker will be in attendance, making valuable connections, expanding our network and building professional relationships. The exhibits will offer another opportunity to see the latest in roofing technology and processes from around the country.
Like the CRCA Trade Show, the IRE is attended by a wide range of industry professionals including contractors, manufacturers, facility managers, architects and more. With 1,317 booths at the show, we will be busy refreshing our knowledge of industry technology, products, safety and professional skills. Additionally, there are more than 44 educational sessions for us to best utilize our time at the show.
Knickerbocker Roofing is excited to join the many participants at this year’s Expo. As specialized roofing contractors for over 130 years, we look forward to meeting other professionals in the industry and talking with attendees about our work and top of the line services we provide.
