The North East Canvas Products Association (NECPA) is celebrating its 100th anniversary at its annual expo and conference taking place Jan 16-18, 2020, in Worcester, Mass. The expo theme is “Then and Now” in honor of the many multigenerational NECPA member companies whose roots, in many cases, go back to the 1800s. The NECPA list of past presidents includes multiple instances of three generations within the same companies, some of which are still thriving today.
The conference will feature the current owners of some of these age-old companies who will share their stories of the challenges, triumphs and vision of “Then and Now.” With an expected attendance of more than three hundred people, the conference and expo floor have a reputation as one of the largest zone events for education, trade show and networking. The 100th anniversary celebration will be capped with a museum of memorabilia and an elegant dinner dance in a vintage hall in Worcester. To register or for more information, visit www.necpa.org.
