First Day at Nepcon (Tradeshow for Manufacturers)

nepcon09aElectronics New England Tradeshow (formerly Nepcon East) opened today at the Boston Convention Center.

Reports from the crew were positive and attendance was better than expected – especially with the grey New England weather.

David says, “…people seemed to visit in spite of this. This is really good because it shows that the old Nepcon show does still have a following and there is still a vibrant manufacturing sector in New England – even though things might be tough right now.” You can read more about his comments in his blog.

The show runs through tomorrow, April 23, opening at 10am and closes at 4pm. If you are in manufacturing or have to comply with DoD military labeling, and are considering attending the show, please stop by and see Winco ID in booth#1017.

We hope to see you there! If you can’t make it, be sure to check back for photos and a full report later this week.

  1. Hi Kathy,

    Thanks for posting this. It is odd that the show seems to be doing OK, despite the best efforts of the promoters to mess it up. During the last year, they’ve played with the name, the dates, the co-located shows: what a mess.

    I’m also surprised to have found that there is no Social Media presence at all for Nepcon or Electronics New England. Big mistake in my opinion. The old days when show promoters could fill their events at high prices are over – get with the program or go out of business!

    Trade show organizers need to do a better job to really make their shows part of the marketing community in the markets they serve, At least SME people are trying with Eastec.
