The Conference on Integrated Building Systems, formerly the VDV Conference and Expo in Las Vegas, will run concurrently with the annual National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) convention and trade show in New Orleans Sept. 17-20.

“This event will prepare electrical contractors to become general contractors and specialty contractors to become prime contractors,” said John Grau, CEO of NECA. “The Master Format has had dramatic changes, and now contractors have to change how they approach business.”

The conference will zero in on the business issues that contractors need to effectively compete in today’s market, said Mary Germershausen, NECA’s executive director of systems technology.

“Whether you have expanded into network cabling, sound, security, fire & life safety, access control, home networking, or all of the above, (it) prepares contractors for the growing convergence market,” she said.
