NATE UNITE 2017, the National Association of Tower Erectors’ annual conference, to be held Feb. 27 through March 2 in Fort Worth, Tex., is expected to rival a record-setting number of visitors to the event that is clearly regarded as the largest and most comprehensive show in the U.S. for the wireless infrastructure industry.
The exhibition is already breaking last year’s excellent exhibitor turnout with 153 of the nation’s key manufacturers, distributors, consultants and service providers in the industry, many of them marketing partners of Wireless Estimator.
Planners of the conference and exhibition expect attendance to considerably eclipse the 2013 Fort Worth show by as much as 40% or more and vie for last year’s record attendance in New Orleans of 1,614.
“Fort Worth is a great venue for the show,” said Patrick Shea of Zurich Tower Program Insurance, who attended NATE’s first organizational meeting in Dallas in 1995.
“We’ll have six people in our booth to cover the considerable increase of submissions we’ve been receiving,” said Shea who noted that he’s appreciative that the organization has opened its member business meeting on Monday to all members.
In prior years, only voting member contractors were eligible to attend the planning and business session.
Advance registration closes on Fri., Feb. 24. On-site registration will be open on Monday at 7:00 a.m.
Wireless Estimator will provide extensive coverage of the event as it has for the past 12 years. If you would like to meet with a representative during the exhibit hall hours scheduled for Tues. from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Wed., 2:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., please contact us.
Decorated Navy Seal and renowned author Marcus Luttrell will deliver the keynote address at the conference on March 1.
