The Next Generation-NOW group will host two events during the Summer Las Vegas Market: a Best Ideas Breakfast and their Chatter Over Cocktails reception, both on Tuesday, July 31.
The new Best Idea Breakfast will be hosted 7:30-9:00 a.m. in the Retailer Resource Center, C-496. Next Generation-NOW members are welcomed to grab a delicious waffle before sitting down at a designated table and discussing what’s working, and not working, with their peers. “The Best Ideas Breakfast will be a great place to sit down with other peers in the industry and discuss the good, the bad and the ugly,” said Next Generation-NOW member, Alex Macias. “The breakfast is a great, informal way to meet new people, share ideas and learn about the various opportunities within Next Generation-NOW.”
The semi-annual Las Vegas “Chatter Over Cocktails” reception will be from 5:00-6:00 p.m. in the One-Six Club on the 16th Floor of Building B. This year’s event will feature “Speed Networking” as well as a special presentation by Kerry Lebensburger, president sales, Ashley Furniture Industries. “Every generation has its challenges, but never has it been more important for our industry to bring together its future leaders,” Lebensburger said. “It is within the power of our young people to create thriving family enterprises that will stand the test of time. As a member of the Young Executives class of 1972, I look forward to the energy and enthusiasm of today's best and brightest members as they learn, share, and interact within this fabulous organization.”
Throughout Market, NGN members can escape their hectic schedules and take a break in The Social Spot within the Retailer Resource Center, C-496. Designated as NGN’s home base during Markets, The Social Spot will let members tune out while plugging in to the latest in social media and technology.
