And they did!" said SPFA Executive Director Kurt Riesenberg during Sprayfoam 2015, which experienced record-setting numbers this year in Albuquerque, N.M., in January. "SPFA's Sprayfoam Convention and Expo is the only organized show that represents your tie to the entire spray polyurethane foam value chain and industry, and its tie to you," said SPFA Executive Director Kurt Riesenberg. SPFA rolled-out its new trademarked phrase, FOAM-IT-RIGHT®, at the convention this year and the speakers, their topics, the messages from exhibitors, the sponsors, the Contractor Excellence Awards and everyone involved in the show focused upon what it means to FOAM-IT-RIGHT®. In addition to incredible attendance on the trade show floor, the breakout EXPO SPONSORS sessions, the PCP training and exams, and during the networking events, this year's event had even more publicity and attendance due to the presence and support of Ty Pennington and the debut of a new idea: opening the trade show floor to the public. "There is so much interest in sprayfoam's insulating, airsealing and architectural benefits today, we wanted to try something new by opening the expo to the public," said Riesenberg. Attendees also had the opportunity to meet Ty Pennington, host of the two-time Emmy and two-time People's Choice award-winning Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, who was on the expo floor in the Lapolla products booth, and was interacting with attendees and available for photos.
