2017 NECA Convention

Counterfeit Electrical Products: Can You Be Sued?

Concern about counterfeit electrical products and the risk they pose continues to grow as fast as the counterfeit products themselves seem to be invading all areas of the supply chain – from manufacturing to distributing to installation.

As the recognized voice of the electrical construction industry, NECA will host a special forum dedicated to these concerns at NECA 2008 Chicago on Monday, Oct. 6, immediately following the grand prize drawing for the NECA Show at 4 p.m. Admission is open to all trade show attendees and convention registrants.

The special one-hour panel discussion on Counterfeit Products: Can You Be Sued? will feature panelists from across the electrical construction industry, including product manufacturers, distributors, contractors, as well as a legal expert in the liability issues counterfeit products pose for all. A question-and-answer session will follow the presentations. Don’t miss this informative session on the legal issues that could affect your projects!

In Chicago: A Hint for Getting To and From McCormick Place

In an effort to encourage carpooling for energy consumption, shared cab transportation options available at McCormick Place allow visitors to pay a flat per-person fare to area hotels, restaurants and other attractions. This program covers an area within these downtown boundaries: Roosevelt Road on the south, North Avenue on the north, Halsted Street on the west and Lake Michigan on the east.

Shared rides are available until two hours before an exhibit closes. The taxi starter or McCormick Place security personnel will provide assistance to your event guests, facilitating a quick and simple commute around the city. The shared taxi fare is priced at a flat rate of $7 per person.

NECA is also providing shuttle service to any convention-goers staying in the room block at the designated convention hotels. Shuttles will run every 15 minutes during Show hours between hotels and the McCormick Center, as well as to the Opening and Closing Session venues.
