“It’s good to be back.”
That was the resounding message from the audience at the NECA 2021 Nashville convention and trade show.
NECA is the voice of the $171 billion electrical construction industry that brings power, light, and communication technology to buildings and communities across the U.S.
Its annual trade event is the largest of its kind in North America and brings together over 300 exhibitors with industry professionals to find customisable solutions to any issues and discover innovative new ideas and products.
Covid meant the 2020 event took place virtually so this year guests were more excited than ever to attend the live, face-to-face conference and enjoy the mix of information and entertainment.
As host for the three day show it was David’s role to run and emcee this in-person event. Introducing invited guests and interviewing keynote speakers, David ensured the audience were engaged and informed throughout and with NECA celebrating a 17% increase in attendance amongst members for the event, energy levels were high.
Attendees enjoyed general sessions with football legend Archie Manning, country music star and entrepreneur John Rich, and business mogul Daymond John plus a wide range of workshops and exhibitions.
Speaking after the show David said: “I’ve worked with NECA since 2019 and this was the family reunion convention we’ve all been waiting for.
“The trade show is an amazing opportunity to network, to innovate and to think big about our future and this year didn’t disappoint with an incredible lineup of guests, workshops and exhibitions.”
“There is always such energy and enthusiasm among the attendees, speakers and exhibitors at this event and the conference really is action-packed. The buzz across the three days was just brilliant and I think we were all delighted to be back in Nashville in person.”
David also delighted the audience with his own motivational keynote which was an amazing part to play in the whole proceedings!
If you are planning an event and would like David to be involved we’d love to hear from you.
