Companies that sell to electrical professionals (contractors and others) have already reserved 84 percent of the available display space at NECA’s 2013 trade show, to be held Oct. 13-15 in Washington, D.C., in conjunction with the NECA Convention.
“We’re not sold out just yet, but we’re getting there faster than I can remember,” said Beth Ellis, Executive Director, NECA Convention-Exposition. “We have a wonderful mix of companies renewing from 2012 – some of them reserving more square feet than a year ago – and exhibitors new to the show.”
Note that the 2012 NECA Show’s display space success put the event on the “Fastest 50” list compiled by Trade Show Executive magazine (click here to see the release: ).
Why do those selling to contractors and others jump on this opportunity? “I can answer that fairly simply,” said Todd McCormick, President of McCormick Systems – an estimating software vendor that has exhibited at the event every year since 1979.
“It’s the quality of the people we see. Every year, we get to speak – face-to-face – with some of our best customers. And we meet new people, including contractors who want to learn about their estimating software options.
“The range of people we meet includes those who specialize in automated building systems, contractors who offer design-build and design-assist services – and others who get most of their sales from transmission and distribution work. We provide estimating software for each. It’s a great opportunity for McCormick Systems.”
