Minneapolis will be home to the nation’s largest regional electrical trade show on April 19-20. Sponsored by the North Central Electrical League (www.ncel.org), the Upper Midwest Electrical Expo typically draws over 9,000 attendees. Although attendance was off at the 2021 show because of COVID-19 concerns, it still had 320 booths with 335 electrical manufacturers and drew attendees from 44 U.S. states and 5 Canadian provinces. The 2021 NCEL breakfast was a big hit, too, drawing 400 hungry attendees and exhibitors and will be held again this year. Along with the busy booths loaded with new products, this year’s show will also offer a robust training curriculum with more than 20 classes on the National Electrical Code that willl be held April 18-20.
