Exhibit floor traffic was brisk all three days of the 2006 NECA Show as electrical contractors, project owners and managers, estimators and technical experts sought information about the latest products and services available to the electrical and datacom industries.

Most of the nearly 300 exhibitors said they were pleased with the level of interest in the products and services they displayed in Boston. Twenty-five of them are recipients of NECA’s prestigious Showstopper Award.

Showstoppers include tools, software, automated lighting controls, excavation equipment and more. Some of the attention-getters were brand new. Others were improved versions of well-known products. Some likely will be surprises, even to the companies who brought them to the convention hall.

The 2006 Showstoppers are listed by exhibiting company name.
