• Ohio Valley IIBEC Chapter Education Days

    This year, the Ohio Valley Chapter of IIBEC - the International Institute of Building Envelope Consultants (formerly RCI) - will host in-person educational workshops on November 30 in Columbus and December 7 in Cleveland (Amherst). These workshops are designed to help architects, engineers, roofing and wall specialists, and contractors to manage risk and achieve success in their projects by providing essential building enclosure knowledge. The 2021 agenda includes the following topics:

    • Using photogrammetry for building assessment and documentation. This class will cover the use of drone-mounted cameras for building assessments and documentation.
    • Industry impact of 2020 FM Global 1-28 and 1-29 modifications.
    • Building cladding, continuous insulation, and vapor barrier performance.
    • Tapered Insulation: A hands-on workshop for design professionals demonstrating essential dos and don’ts for proper tapered insulation design.
    • Fall Protection and the Law: What architects and building owners need to know about fall protection systems for their projects.
    • IIBEC Roof certification practice exams.
    Participants will earn up to 7 AIA HSW Learning Units for completing the scheduled classes. IIBEC members will receive corresponding IIBEC Continuing Education Units. Those who cannot attend in person can participate virtually and still earn 6 credits.

    In addition to the classwork, some of the country’s leading roofing manufacturers will be available to show you the latest in roofing product innovations.

  • Product Fest 2021 - May 13 @ The Opportunity Parking Deck

    Due to the postponement of ProductFest last year, we are so excited to have a show this year and welcome everyone back! With vendor, sponsor, and attendee safety in mind, ProductFest 2021 will be held on the fourth and fifth levels of the Opportunity Parking Deck in downtown Akron (666 Broadway St., Akron, OH 44311). We feel the unique location of the show in a parking deck provides you with the ability to have face-to-face interaction with people in a safe environment. To maintain that safe environment for everyone, we have provided adequate ventilation by being outdoors and increased space between vendors and those in educational seminars. Multiple hand sanitizing, hand washing stations, and restrooms will be available for attendees. All attendees must also comply with social distancing requirements, wear masks at all times (unless actively eating or drinking), and complete Akron-Canton CSI's COVID-19 Waiver before the program, and stay home if they have a fever, cough, or other signs of possible COVID-19. We hope these precautions create a sense of safety for everyone and will encourage people to attend. 

    PRODUCTFEST 2021 is your company’s opportunity to present your product, service, or solution to your most important future customers and establish beneficial relationships.
    This year, vendors will use the trunk of their car as their booth backdrop (à la tailgate). A table will be provided for each vendor, and vendors are encouraged to supply their own camp chairs.  *Display area is one parking space with no power and setup must stay within this area.
