NAED Combines Eastern and South Central Conferences Because of COVID-19 Concerns

July 14, 2020
The combined Eastern and South Central Region Conferences will be held Feb. 22-24, 2021 at the JW Marriott Tampa Water Street, Tampa, FL.

The NAED Eastern and South Central Region Conferences will be combined due to concerns over the COVID-19 coronavirus. The conference format and scheduling will be similar to past NAED Region Conferences.

"This will give us all more time to understand the impact of COVID-19," said Tom Naber, NAED president, in the association’s announcement. “It allows more time to decide when you are ready to begin face-to-face meetings again. In the meantime, we are planning new ways to help you network and keep your business moving."

To fill this gap in industry execs’ ability to network, the St. Louis-based National Association of Electrical Distributors has launched the Virtual Suite Meeting Aug. 24-26. This three-day event will allow distributors and suppliers to schedule meetings and discuss 2021 business strategy at a critical time of year. NAED says the virtual event will provide an easy way to schedule meetings, taking less time than when industry execs plan for an in -person regional.
