7 Reasons to Attend NECA 2019

September 6, 2019

NECA is an annual conference and trade show to bring electrical contractors and industry professionals together. But why is NECA (National Electrical Contractors Association) the electrical contractor trade show that electrical professionals cannot miss? 


1. It’s the #1 electrical trade show in the USA

Organized by the national electrical contractors association, the NECA trade show is the place to meet and share knowledge with electrical professionals from across the world.  The electrical convention involves all aspects of the electrical construction and integrated building systems industries and is North America’s largest event for power, light and communication technology.

The event yields great reviews from an international audience: 97% rated last year’s event as excellent or very good. Last year, electrical professionals from 50 states and 11 countries attended the event. If you are able to only attend one trade show or conference this year as an electrical contractor, this is the one you cannot miss! 


2. Get inspired at the TECHTOPIA area

The TECHTOPIA area is back this year and bigger than ever. Here, you can discover the latest technologies that affect the electrical industry and learn more about “All Things Digital and Disruptive”. Think drones, BIM, mixed reality, PoE smart lighting, and more. Make sure to listen in to keynotes from industry experts, such as Trimble’s segment manager David Burczyk, who will be there to present the latest developments in mixed reality for electrical contractors.
