2017 NECA Convention

Getting the Word Out

We're excited about NECA 2008 Chicago, and we want to make sure our exhibitors at the NECA Show know about all the great things we're doing to get the word out – and get the right people to your booth!

Here's just a sample of what we've done recently to market the NECA Show to our members and industry leaders.

1. NECA 2008 Chicago Circuit
Our e-newsletter for registered and prospective attendees goes out bi-weekly to more than 6,000 targeted individuals. Read the most recent issues online and sign up to get your copy now!

2. Advertisements in Trade Publications
We've invested in several full-page print advertisements promoting NECA 2008 Chicago in the publications we know our attendees read and share with their colleagues, including ELECTRICAL CONTRACTOR magazine, Electrical Advertiser, Electrical Source, SolarPro, Electrical Solutions, and TED magazine. Ads are developed by the creative team of Attendance Marketing, our partner in reaching the largest and most important audience for the NECA Show. Contact Mickey, mickey@necanet.org, if you would like to see a sample of a recent ad in one of these publications.

3. Email Campaigns

We've also capitalized on our relationship with these trade publications to reach out to their subscribers, as well as Chicago-area NECA chapters and electrical distributors.

Our media relations activities and Win Free Airfare promotion will be detailed in the next issue of the NECA 2008 Chicago exhibitor newsletter!


Green Alley at NECA Show Gets the Green Light

Green building is the leading trend shaping construction and design these days, and at NECA 2008 Chicago, we're making sure that electrical contractors have the tools to help their customers meet their own green building goals, whether in achieving LEED certification, making buildings more energy efficient, or using renewable energy technology in their construction projects. Our Green Alley exhibitors are playing an important part in helping us achieve this goal!


Registration for Exhibitors

The NECA 2008 Chicago website, www.necaconvention.org, offers a special section just for exhibitors to get the information they need about shipping, booth set-up, housing and registration. Exhibitors must use the registration link from this section in order to ensure correct badging and housing arrangements.

Contact katie@necanet.org if you have any questions about registering as an exhibitor for NECA 2008 Chicago.


Helpful Hints: 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.


Floor Plan for NECA 2009 Seattle Will Be Online in Chicago!

It's hard to believe, but we're already thinking ahead to the 2009 NECA Show in Seattle. Because we know you need to make your plans well in advance, too, we will have the online NECA Show floor plan and space sign-up available online through www.necaconvention.org on Monday, Oct. 6 – while we're still in Chicago! This improvement is the direct result of feedback from NECA Show exhibitors, and we hope you take advantage of it!
