EMERGING INNOVATION HUB featuring the New Product Demonstration Area

Join us in SanDiego for the all-new Emerging Innovation Hub—the place to find all that is NECA and all that is new!

Conveniently located in the Sails Pavilion, immediately across from the General Session room and Convention Education classrooms, the Hub is where electrical contractors can explore important topics in the electrical construction industry and find cutting-edge answers to their business questions. Take a look at everything that's happening:

Here's just a sample of what's in store in the Hub:

Product Demo Area

Electrical contractors will visit this interactive sector where companies showcase the latest innovations that will help them grow their business. The Product Demonstration Area provides live presentations focusing on low voltage, EV and emerging technologies.

What is it? 

A product showcase area where both exhibitors & non-exhibitors at the NECA Show can highlight an innovative product WITH a company rep on hand to conduct demonstrations with attendees. There are two different size Kiosk and space is limited.  There are also a limited # of 20-minute speaking opportunities. How are these unique? In NECA’s other exhibitor education opportunities, promotion of products or services is not allowed. These demos are specifically designed to highlight innovative solutions for electrical contractors.

Also centrally located in the Sails Pavilion is within the Hub is where you will find the:

  • NECA Services Booth
  • Lunch Area
  • Innovation Zone & Overload Podcast
  • EV Resource Network
  • Apprentice Escape Room
  • Schneider Lounge
  • and much more

Please note that these areas will be sold on a first-come first-served basis!  There is a Limit of 11 Kiosk and 8 Waterfall table top displays (price varies in size depending if you're a current exhibitor or reserving as a non-exhibitor.) If there is space available we will continue to accept applications.  Confirmed Product Demo exhibitors have the opportunity to purchase one of the limited 20-minute presentation slots for an additional fee.

Don't wait. This area will sell-out quickly.  Contact Beth Ellis at 202-991-6243 or eie@necanet.org today.
