Coming in 2015, the IICRC’s Council of Associations (IICRCA) will hold its first ever trade show - “The IICRCA Event” – from May 6-8, 2015 at the Rio in Las Vegas. The IICRCA Event will be held in conjunction with the Restoration Industry Association (RIA) International Restoration Convention & Industry Expo, and both events promise to be different from anything else in the industry, according to organizers.
“Across the industries we serve, we’ve already got shows without a mission and we’ve got shows where vendors feel they could be getting more value,” said Bryan O’Haleck, Chairman of the Association. “What we want to do is start with a blank slate, designing everything from the ground up along two lines: How do we help everyone who attends make or save money? It’s simple – but it’s also powerful.”
Created by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) in 2012, the IICRCA is a global, cross-industry council of associations that allows diverse interests in cleaning, restoration, inspection and related fields to exchange information, speak in a unified voice regarding major issues and deliver value both to the member organizations and, in turn, to their membership bases.
Adds RIA Executive Director Marc Selvitelli: “The Restoration Industry Association is honored that the IICRCA chose to host its first conference alongside RIA’s 70th Annual International Restoration Convention and Industry Expo. The co-located events at the Rio Las Vegas will provide both groups’ attendees with additional networking opportunities and increased exposure to the industry’s latest products and services. IICRCA attendees seeking continuing education credits are encouraged to sign up for the RIA conference to enjoy the full slate of RIA learning sessions and courses.”
