“Our mission is to educate the entire industry, elevate the general knowledge level of all electrical contractors, and expand the depth and breadth of customers’ expectations of electrical contractors – including lighting assistance, structured cabling, integrated systems, security and much more,” said NECA President Dennis Quebe, chairman and chief executive officer, Chapel Electric Co. LLC, Dayton, Ohio.
Drawing thousands of attendees from apprentices through executives, NECA’s growing international event offers education, training, best practices, unparalleled networking and the latest resources.
A reported 75 percent of attendees are the final decision makers for new products and services – or part of the decision-making team. According to Electrical Contractor magazine’s 2014 reader survey, more than 80 percent of electrical contractors now report a medium or high ability to influence the overall electrical system design.
“We find new cutting-edge products, services and education that solidifies our leadership position in this very competitive market,” said Eric Nixon, president, Maron Electric Company, Skokie, Ill.
