Part swanky nightclub, part jazz lounge, part dance club, this party will be unlike anything you have ever seen.

While you’re partying on the pier with your peers, enjoy delectable foods and Chicago treats, and sip on designer cocktails or wines served from specialty bar areas. Or choose your poison from the vast circle bar area, sponsored by Autodesk. And what kind of party would this be without music?


NECA 2008 Chicago is the Place to Go Green!

This year the NECA convention and trade show is focusing on the green technologies of the future, and the exciting opportunities that exist for your business.  After all, your customers are becoming more educated about the alternatives to conventional power generation, such as solar, wind, and biomass, and they want these energy-saving options for their buildings. The installation and use of these alternative methods of power generation take specific skills and awareness of a wide array of new products. Gaining this knowledge is essential to remain competitive in these rapidly expanding markets, and at NECA 2008 Chicago, your business will gain a distinct advantage with all the education, and product information you’ll need to stay ahead of the industry!
