Virtual Event

NECA 2020 LIVE DETAILS
Registration Opens Aug. 3 for Virtual Convention & Trade Show  

You and your employees are invited to attend NECA 2020 LIVE, the virtual Convention & Trade Show, taking place Oct. 5 - 8, 2020. This virtual event will maintain its traditional dynamic speakers and educational opportunities, but has been adjusted to meet the evolving requirements demanded by the COVID-19 pandemic. NECA is harnessing cutting-edge technology to deliver all the benefits of the NECA Convention—including an interactive trade show floor, extensive educational opportunities, and inspiring talks—as well as all the freedom that comes from an online experience.

This is the one chance to register your employees that have not had the opportunity to attend the NECA Convention in past years. By tuning in virtually, you will see what all the hype is about, without having to worry about travel expenses, meals or housing accommodations. You will be able to take advantage of the education, entertainment, networking and everything NECA Convention has to offer, at a fraction of the price. Plus, all educational sessions will be available to you, on-demand, at no extra cost for 30 days after NECA 2020 LIVE. 

"NECA 2020 LIVE provides a tremendous opportunity for all of our member companies to be represented at NECA's Convention for the first time. I'm excited for talent at all levels of our organizations to be exposed to NECA's industry-best education, exhibit hall, and networking opportunities, in a format—and at a price point—more accessible than ever before. The value NECA members will get from attending NECA 2020 LIVE is truly second-to-none."
– Mark L. Thomas (ECA Executive Vice President)
