The two winners of Power Players will be flown over to the Philadelphia, where the US National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) is holding its annual conference in 2018. NECA has kindly agreed to host the two winners during the three-day event.

ECA CEO Steve Bratt comments: “With such fantastic prizes on offer for the winners of Power Players, we look forward to receiving entries from leading young people right across the industry. Power Players is a genuinely industry-wide event, and I am delighted to say that nearly 20 other organisations are now partnering on or supporting the initiative.”
