The convention consists of three full days of education, networking, family fun, sports, and friends along with two days of FRSA's highly recognized trade show, the Florida Roofing & Sheet Metal Expo.
The FRSA Convention and Trade Show was re-energized and reformatted this past year into shorter, more efficient events. The results were amazing for attendees and exhibitors alike, so we'll be building upon the success of the new format for 2014.
The theme for 2014, "Developing Industry All-Stars," will focus on five key areas and will continue the momentum of the first annual S.T.A.R. Awards.

The Convention will begin on Thursday with sporting events; a golf tournament at Rosen Shingle Creek Golf Course, a fishing tournament at Disney's Wilderness Lodge and a clay shooting tournament at Mission Inn Resort.
Last year, more than 2,300 roofing and sheet metal contractors, building officials, architects and industry suppliers attended the show with 302 booths and 184 different exhibiting companies, which offered the latest in products and services to the industry. Already this year, there are 116 exhibitors reserving 213 booths.
The show runs for 8.5 conflict-free hours, encouraging maximum participation over the two day period. Each year the reviews continue to give high praise to the show, from both attendees and exhibitors.
