NECO Upbeat at FoxwoodsNovember 2001
Business was bustling at NECO Alliance Fall Expo at Foxwoods Resort & Casino in Ledyard, Conn., with attendance up to about 1,200. Post-show, NECO Executive Director Mel Hunger anticipated "more orders than ever before." Only two of NECO's five distributor chapters had reported by press time, but Hunger added, "It was the best show we ever had." New NECO vendors include Hitachi, Einhoven Cookware and a new Energy Star contingent. As for new dealers, Hunger said, "We're looking at new applicants, and, if they qualify, we're receptive to them. We're definitely growing in numbers." Contact Hunger at firstname.lastname@example.org or (973) 595-6699.
