Attendees and exhibitors of the 2015 International Roofing Expo [IRE] can now make housing and travel reservations through the official hotel vendor, Travel Planners.

Offering hotel, airline and car rental discounts through a variety of companies, Travel Planners offers the biggest savings and most valuable perks.

Taking place Feb. 24-26, 2015, at the Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, the show will offer roofing contractors of all sizes and specialties a comprehensive preview of the entire roofing construction and maintenance industry.

As the only official housing provider for IRE, Travel Planners is the only company that can sell rooms in the official housing blocks. Attendees and exhibitors are encouraged not to use other housing providers to secure rooms.

“We negotiated the lowest rates and amenities at a variety of hotels in proximity to the convention center,” said CEM Show Director Tracy Garcia, CEM. “Attendees and exhibitors are encouraged to reserve their rooms early, as hotels sell out quickly and discounted rates are only available for a limited time.”

In addition to the specially negotiated rates, attendees and exhibitors who book their rooms through the official housing service will enjoy certain additional benefits such as low rates, no deposit and complimentary shuttle bus service between official show hotels and the convention center.

The New Orleans Marriott will serve as the headquarter hotel and will host most NRCA meetings and events. Hotels in the IRE block in walking distance include Embassy Suites New Orleans Convention Center, Hampton Inn and Suites Convention Center, Hilton Garden Inn Convention Center, Hilton New Orleans Riverside, Hyatt Place (formerly Hotel New Orleans) and Wyndham Riverfront New Orleans.

The hotels in the IRE block that offer shuttle service are in walking distance include Astor Crowne Plaza New Orleans French Quarter, Hotel Le Marais, New Orleans Marriott, Royal Sonesta New Orleans, and Sheraton New Orleans.

American, Delta, United, Air Canada and AlaskaAir will serve as official airlines, offering service from destinations nationwide to the Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport (MSY). Discounts are available off published airfares and based on availability, offering the most cost-efficient travel routes to the show.
