Wholesaler-Distributor Events & Training Opportunities

The National Association of Wholesaler-Distributors 2013 Executive Summit was held this month in Washington, D.C. The summit looked ahead to 2013-2014 at best practices in electrical wholesaling and distribution. There was a professional lineup of expert speakers who covered what is, and what isn’t working in distribution in recent years.

This year’s calendar for the industry includes many events that are not only for executives. Much of what is planned is for end-users. That’s where things get done. Below are some key events and educational opportunities in motor and motion control as well as the ongoing “Green” movement.

Chicago Green 2013

Chicago Green 2013 was put on by the Chicago-land Electric Association in Rosemont, IL, January 24. The event included significant changes as the Green movement is maturing. This topic is expected to get the spotlight in the foreseeable future.

The event is dubbed “An Educational Conference Focusing on Green Opportunities in the Electrical Industry”. Despite a strained economy and trade/exhibition attendance dwindling, the Green movement continues to gain steam. A larger contingency of electrical contractors was accommodated and arrived as expected. Seminars were tailored for end-users, facility managers, municipalities, property managers as well as electrical construction. Learn more about this growing annual conference at
