Jan 19, 2017 -- SRUI had a strong presence at the recent International Builders Show in Orlando, FL, January 10 – 13, 2017. SRUI member companies displayed synthetic underlayments to the over 80,000 IBS Show attendees. Several Board Members participated in the show by meeting with potential new SRUI members, answering questions and offering details on the benefits of SRUI membership.
Interest in SRUI continues to grow as the organization builds its influence throughout the underlayment industry.
“I am very encouraged by the response and level of interest in the organization,” said SRUI Membership Chair, Bruce Hayden. “As we have expanded our engagement in the standards development process and our outreach to associations representing the various roof cladding materials, people are recognizing SRUI’s influence. That is creating greater interest in the organization.”
The overall foot traffic at the show was solid with many companies giving positive reviews on the quality and number of leads.
SRUI members are looking forward to the International Roofing Expo in Las Vegas, NV, March 1-3, 2017. Several member companies will be displaying synthetic roof underlayments as well as meeting with new member candidates to further education and growth of synthetic roofing.
