On Tuesday, the International Roofing Expo announced the winners of its first annual Innovative Product Showcase and Awards Program, an industry recognition celebrating cutting-edge solutions in the roofing and exteriors industry in two categories: People’s Choice and Experts’ Choice. 

The Innovative Product Showcase and Awards Program entries were displayed at last month’s 2024 International Roofing Expo in Las Vegas. Attendees had the opportunity to view the products and services in the showcase and cast their votes for the People’s Choice Award across eight categories. One winner was chosen in each category; voting opened in late January and concluded on February 23. 

"We would like to thank all the companies that participated in our inaugural Innovative Product Showcase and Awards program this year and those that voted. It’s important for the industry to honor the products and services that are pushing the limits in our market today,” said Rich Russo, Show Director for the International Roofing Expo. “Congratulations to the 2024 award winners!”
