“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.”
Jennifer Lee, Cupertino Electric Inc.

Offical Vendors for the NECA Show

Several exhibitors told us they've already received solicitation emails and phone calls about hotel needs for Nashville. Please know their are scammers out there. However, you can trust our Official Vendors. They are using the NECA Official Vendor logo in their communications.

Current exhibitors received an email from our Official Registration and Housing supplier, CMR (Convention Management Resources).  You can submit your hotel needs through their Online Request Form.

Please submit your form by June 18th to be assigned a block prior to the July 14th Housing Opening.

If you are being contacted by multiple vendors wanting to book your hotel rooms, or provide AV services, etc...and you don't know who to believe, give us a call.

NECA has had long-term relationships with our Official Vendors. They have been carefully vetted to be sure they deliver what they promise.  USE THESE OFFICIAL VENDORS to ensure the best customer service and pricing.

You will be able to order for all NECA suppliers when you receive your Official Exhibitor Service Manual early July.

Here's What They're Saying 
About the NECA Show

Check out this quick video
“We value the many services NECA provides for members. The annual convention and trade show have been a ‘must-attend’ event for many years.  Our leadership team reviews the education schedule, networking activities, and the trade show. Then we divide and conquer only to regroup and share information. We always leave with new ideas to explore and new products and services to purchase. We will attend Nashville and register a team for the online convention and trade show too. Count on seeing McPhee Electric next fall.”
Marcus McPhee, Phalcon, Ltd. and McPhee Electric Ltd.

“We are looking forward to being together for NECA 2021 Nashville. We value the opportunity to network, share knowledge, and continually learn new ways to effectively manage our business. The NECA Show is a great resource. We want to encourage more manufacturers of T&D and substation equipment to participate. We need to see your solutions.”
Dan Dudley, Marable-Pirkle Services, LLC (MPS)

“I really thought this (NECA 2019 Las Vegas) was the best trade show and exhibits ever. We usually go through it in one day, and instead, we spent three days on the floor in Las Vegas. We were very pleased with everything this year. Excellent Speakers throughout all the convention education.” Andy Vogelsang, DeBra-Kuempel, an EMCOR Company

“A few ago, I came across a service that ended up saving us hundreds of thousands of dollars. You can’t go wrong attending the NECA Show!” 
Victor Salerno, CEO, O’Connell Electric Company, Inc.

          ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~        The New NECA Show

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

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.
