  • Welcome from NECA

    It happens every year in a different city, the excitement stirs, contractors come together to network, be educated, and learn about new products and services. The NECA Show is a place where you can renew old acquaintanceships, make new ones, take advantage of specialty pre-convention workshops, attend technical workshops, participate in informative management seminars, stroll the aisles with hundreds of manufacturers and distributors on the show floor. Every year it gets bigger and better. This year on October 4–7, 2008 you can find this all at the NECA Convention and Trade Show in Chicago, IL.

    The NECA Convention website will walk you through all the details and attractions of the NECA Convention and Trade Show. I invite you to join us for this exciting event … the NECA Convention and Trade Show!
