Those who have felt left out of the NECA/IBEW Conference in years past will be happy to hear that it will be a little less exclusive at this year’s V/D/V/Integrated Building Systems Conference & Expo, March 10-12 at the Las Vegas Hilton. The groups hope to spread the word about their training efforts to non-members. Previously only NECA contractors and their employees and IBEW-signatory contractors and employees were invited.

Educational sessions scheduled to take place will cover fiber optics, copper cabling, home networking, and power quality. Private general sessions covering legislative updates and licensing will still take place for NECA and IBEW members.

The conference is intended to provide a working forum for members of labor and management groups to discuss issues related to voice/data/video and integrated building systems and the future of the industry.
