Online Event Continues to Educate & Inspire the Roofing Community
by Marcus Dodson, publisher
Mark your calendars for the upcoming Virtual Western Roofing Expo 2020, the premier regional roofing and waterproofing event in the United States, hosted by the Western States Roofing Contractors Association (WSRCA). The event will take place July 1-15, 2020, and Virtual Western Roofing Expo registrants will have access to an online trade show and webinars until December 31, 2020. This self-pacing feature allows registrants to enjoy every webinar and visit every trade show booth, a task that is nearly impossible at the traditional Western Roofing Expo.
Many in the roofing industry rely on the WSRCA to elevate their businesses with vital educational sessions, by discovering cost-saving products and services in the marketplace, and the opportunity to network with old friends and create new relationships. By releasing registrants from the burden of travel and the cost of exhibiting, the WSRCA is allowing the roofing industry to continue to grow during these unprecedented times. “As you have come to expect from the WSRCA, we have turned this challenge into an opportunity for the industry,” said WSRCA executive director, Thomas Papas.
The WSRCA is excited to provide dynamic virtual activities, including: an interactive list of exhibitors, which allows registrants to explore and discover new product videos, show specials, and professional services for the modern roofing professional; specials on roofing products that professionals use in everyday business; videos on the latest products available on today’s roofing market, as well as how to maximize profits and minimize labor expenses; and a virtual networking floor where registrants can ask questions about different products and services, and discover new ways to increase their bottom line. Also included will be over 20 live and on-demand webinars selected by the WSRCA contractor panel, including proper installation of roofing systems, how to maintain OSHA compliance, and ways to avoid costly legal mistakes; the opportunity to earn IIBEC and AIA CEUs; product demonstrations that showcase products and professional services that can make a huge impact on sales; members-only raffle prizes; legislative updates from the WSRCA’s Washington insider, Craig Brightup; the WSRCA’s scholarship award ceremony; and a virtual silent auction to benefit the Davis Memorial Foundation Scholarship Program.
“In these unprecedented times, the WSRCA has found ways to still bring you education on new and inventive products,” stated WSRCA president, Leo Ibarra. “That’s what this association is all about; continuing to adapt the industry in this ever-changing world. I am honored to be a part of such an incredible organization and can’t wait to see you at the virtual Western Roofing Expo.”
