organization in North America. The NECA Show is the largest exposition for any
and all electrical needs, including power supply, security systems, integrated
building systems, lighting and controls. NECA contractors continually set
industry standards for traditional electrical work, and now they have expanded
into the burgeoning energy efficiency, sustainable construction, and renewable
energy markets.

In these tough economic times, achieving effective results demands a paradigm
shift that can only be realized with exposure to new thoughts and ideas. The
NECA Show provides opportunities to make valuable connections with highly
qualified customers and prospects that need your solutions. And, all in just three
days! Book your space today for NECA 2013 Washington DC. It’s the Show for
Those Who Power the World!
