Visitors to next month’s International Roofing Expo will have a “new” area to check out on the trade show floor.

The former Renewable Energy Pavilion has been renamed the Sustainability Pavilion and will feature environmentally friendly products such solar, photovoltaics, vegetative, day lighting and geothermal technologies.

The pavilion is sponsored by Advanced Green Technologies.

"Sustainable products are a fast-growing segment of the roofing industry," said Lindsay Roberts, expo director. “This pavilion will feature a collection of products and services to help roofing professionals meet the growing demand for sustainability in their operations.”

The pavilion will also showcase product demonstrations, said Bill Good, executive vice president of the National Roofing Contractors Association, which sponsors the expo.

“The Sustainability Pavilion provides a great opportunity to understand how new technologies will shape our future,” Good said. “I encourage all of our members to see the latest products and learn from the educational demonstrations.”  

The International Roofing Expo takes place Feb. 22-24 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla.
