The Western States Roofing Contractors Association (WSRCA) has released new dates and venue for the Western Roofing Expo 2021.
The WSRCA has postponed its Western Roofing Expo (WRE) to the fall of 2021. The WSRCA Board of Directors, with support from key exhibitors, has decided to move the WRE to October 3-5, 2021, at the Rio® All-Suites Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.
In addition to 55,000 sq.ft. for the trade show floor, the WRE will also offer 24 educational seminars, two keynote luncheons, golf and sporting clays tournaments, and a live auction to help support the Davis Memorial Foundation’s scholarship fund. The WSRCA has secured sleeping rooms at the RIO and at the Paris-Las Vegas at great rates during the most popular time of the year in Las Vegas.
WSRCA president, Leo Ibarra, said, “I am very excited that we will get the opportunity to have a WRE this year. The WSRCA staff has worked extremely hard to make sure we are putting together a show that will be social and help us remain safe at the same time. I cannot wait to see everyone there, and I know a lot of us are looking forward to continue the networking that comes along with being part of such a great association. I hope all of you will join us for this year’s expo, and as always, the great educational seminars that WSRCA is known for providing. I am looking forward to October at the Rio and hope to see you all there.”
WSRCA leadership has also decided to move future WRE events to the fall through 2026. Starting in 2022, the WRE will be back to its familiar home at the Paris-Las Vegas.
Future WRE Dates and Locations:
2021: October 3-5 at the Rio All-Suites Hotel and Casino
2022: September 24-26 at the Paris-Las Vegas
2023: September 23-25 at the Paris-Las Vegas
2024: September 29-October 1 at the Paris-Las Vegas
2025: September 28-30 at the Paris-Las Vegas
2026: September 27-29 at the Paris-Las Vegas
“Having a safe and successful WRE experience is always at the forefront of our decision-making process. We feel much more confident in providing a safe environment in October, rather than in June. We also feel we will be able to deliver a more fruitful return on investment for our attendees and exhibitors later this year, after a larger segment of the population has had a chance to be vaccinated and will be protected from COVID-19. We are excited to permanently move to the fall, when the weather in Las Vegas is optimal, and the roofing trade show schedule isn’t as crowded,” said WSRCA executive director, Joel Viera.
