Portage, Michigan (PRWEB) November 30, 2015
Over 400 electrical power systems and testing professionals and leading decision makers looking for new products and services will converge at the PowerTest 2016 Trade Show to tour the exhibits of more than 100 top-tier electrical power vendors specifically focused on electrical system safety and reliability. The Trade Show, sponsored by NETA — InterNational Electrical Testing Association — also features a Spotlight Stage in the center of the exhibit floor where NETA’s Corporate Alliance Partners , leaders in the industry, will share best practices and insights.
New this year is the Trade Show’s expanded hours, Tuesday, March 15, 2016, from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Fort Worth Convention Center. The Trade Show is part of NETA’s premier PowerTest electrical maintenance and safety event taking place March 14 - 16, 2016, at the Omni Fort Worth Hotel, across the street from the Fort Worth Convention Center.
The PowerTest 2016 Trade Show represents the largest gathering of electrical maintenance and testing professionals in the industry. In fact, NETA’s PowerTest event is the only conference targeted directly at the electrical maintenance and testing industry. Attendees include contractors, engineers, field service technicians, electrical inspectors, and consultants from manufacturing plants, testing companies, industrial plants, petrochemical plants, utilities, wind energy companies, and government agencies.
Trade Show attendees enjoy a complimentary lunch and beverages as they tour the exhibit floor, finding the most innovative maintenance and testing products and services and making important industry connections. The Trade Show is one of the most popular destinations for PowerTest attendees because these exhibitors have often developed the exact products attendees are seeking and can provide the most updated information and answer questions not available through normal sales channels.
PowerTest Trade Show attendees are always eager to join NETA's Corporate Alliance Partners as they share insights and best practices on the Spotlight Stage located at the center of the Trade Show.
