“Due to the pandemic, we didn’t know if there would be a NECA convention in 2020. Well, they exceeded any expectations with the NECA 2020 LIVE virtual event. Our team attended many online education sessions and visited most of the exhibitor booths. We registered several staff than wouldn’t typically attend convention. The following On-Demand access to education and exhibitors has been a real bonus. We plan to send a team to Nashville and register a contingent for the virtual event too.”

The NECA SHOW is where leaders of the $171 billion electrical construction industry convene each year to stay ahead of the ever-changing industry landscape. These electrical contractors bring power, light, and communication technology to buildings and communities across the U.S.

Whether in Nashville or online, NECA will open the doors again this year inviting the entire industry to meet and discuss the expanding opportunities in electrical construction. We hope you’ll join us.


Based on the overwhelming success of our first virtual convention and trade show, NECA will add online options for all major events going forward in addition to bringing the industry together in one physical location.  Now manufacturers and distributors can reach even more customers and highly qualified prospects with thie hybrid event. The proof is in the numbers:

40% of NECA 2020 LIVE attendees never attended a NECA Show before

51% of NECA 2019 LAS VEGAS attendees do not attend any other trade show
