The Radiant Panel Association’s 2008 REX show will be held at the new Renaissance Hotel and Convention Center in Schaumburg, Ill., Aug 13-15.

This year’s conference portion will highlight how radiant has been “green” all along with presentations from the REX Green Team: John Siegenthaler, George Royce, David Yates, Peter Biondo, Robert Bean, and others. A New Product Market Place  and a Radiant Hall of Fame kiosk also will be displayed on the show floor.

In related news, the RPA announced that it is moving its Radiant Expo back to the spring in 2010. To hold the expo in the spring of 2009 would have put it too close on the heels of the 2008 event. Although there will not be a REX next year, the RPA is planning to hold its national convention in May 2009 in the northeastern part of the country.
