International Roofing Expo (IRE) 2023: What To Do While You’re In Dallas

IRE | Trade Show

Next week, roofing manufacturers, distributors, contractors, and other industry professionals will come together in Dallas, TX at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center for the International Roofing Expo (IRE) to showcase new products, technologies, and services. But, we all know the saying about all work and no play. 

While the days of IRE will be filled with networking and discussing roofing industry trends, the nights and any other free time gives you an opportunity to enjoy beautiful Dallas. As the top visitor destination in Texas, Dallas has something for everything for everyone including a diverse culinary scene, vibrant nightlife, natural beauty and rich history.

Below are some of the top attractions to check out while you’re in Dallas for IRE 2023.



Dallas Food and Drink

Dallas has a diverse culinary scene with plenty of restaurant options for foodies, including local Tex-Mex cuisine, BBQ, and other international flavors. The city also has a thriving craft beer and cocktail culture.

Dallas has a great bar scene, including the iconic dive bar Lee Harvey’s and several bars in downtown Dallas. If you’re up for checking out other Dallas neighborhoods with plenty of nightlife, hop in a quick Uber and head to Henderson Avenue or Deep Ellum.


Dallas Sports

Dallas is a major sports city, home to professional teams such as the Dallas Cowboys, the Dallas Mavericks, and the Dallas Stars. The Dallas Mavericks have two home games during IRE while the Dallas Stars will be in town the night before IRE begins. While IRE takes place during football’s off season, Dallas Cowboy fans can still take a tour of AT&T stadium.

Dallas is a shopper's paradise, with numerous shopping destinations, including the Galleria Dallas, NorthPark Center, and Highland Park Village.
