THE UK ROOFING industry is invited to an important international roofing event this September supporting Great Britain’s hosting of the International Federation for the Roofing Trade (IFD) Annual Congress.

Taking place on 25-28 September, 2019, over 100 roofing representatives from 19 member countries including Europe, Asia, and America will gather in historic Edinburgh as guests of the National Federation of Roofing Contractors, which is the UK member of the IFD.

Congress exhibition

This year’s Congress and Awards is featuring an exhibition and evening networking event, organised by the NFRC. Co-located at the Edinburgh’s Radisson Blu Hotel which is hosting the Congress, the special one-off ‘Congress Exhibition’ on 26-27 September will provide a platform for roofing products and services, designed to showcase the very best the UK has to offer to this international audience.

Traditional evening

Another highlight of the four-day event will be a Traditional Evening in the fabulously impressive surroundings of Edinburgh Castle located in the heart of the city and sponsored by Velux.

The NFRC is now inviting all those in the UK roofing industry to come and help support Great Britain as hosts and enjoy an evening of industry networking, entertainment and fun.

Edinburgh Castle

As the whole of Edinburgh Castle has been hired for the event, guests will be able to exclusively tour the Castle throughout the evening, enjoying seeing the Scottish crown jewels and
breath-taking views across the city.

With traditional Scottish entertainment, food and drinks the evening is set to be one to remember!

Graeme Millar, ex-President of the NFRC said, “The NFRC is proud to be hosting this international event for roofing professionals. We are looking forward to networking and strengthening our relationships with our international roofing counterparts, as well as having a fabulous evening and showing our guests a great time!”

“The NFRC is pleased to welcome all those from the UK roofing industry, whether contractors, manufacturers or other roofing professionals.”

James Talman CEO NFRC

James Talman, NFRC Chief Executive, said, “As the UK’s largest roofing federation across all disciplines, the NFRC is passionate about promoting UK roofing to the rest of the world. As the UK renegotiates its trading relations following the vote to leave the EU, this is a rare opportunity for companies looking to enter new markets and re-establish themselves in existing ones, to meet senior decision-makers from EU countries, but also China and the US.”

Tickets are available individually or in discounted tables of 10 and a special rate has been agreed at Edinburgh’s Radisson Blu Hotel.

Allowing UK guests to make their visit to Edinburgh a mini break, a Gala Dinner and Awards Ceremony follows on Friday 27 September in the spectacular surroundings of Edinburgh’s Assembly Rooms with entertainment and dancing.
