NECA 2019 Is Betting on a Successful Outcome

Attendees won’t have to rely on luck to cash in on valuable insights at this year’s conference.

The theme of NECA 2019, “Bright Lights, Big Ideas,” couldn’t be more appropriate, considering this year’s host city is Las Vegas, also known as the Neon Capital of the World. Scheduled to take place September 14 through September 17 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center, the annual electrical contracting event promises “more of everything,” including a wide range of new technologies, the opportunity to touch and feel thousands of the latest products and services from 300-plus exhibitors, and the chance to learn more about workforce development and see where the industry is headed. As always, the conference will offer countless networking opportunities along with numerous educational seminars and technical sessions.  

Following are details and links to important NECA 2019 information/events:
