The Next Generation-NOW group announced that it will host a Market “Chatter Over Cocktails” reception on Saturday, October 13, during the Fall High Point Market. The networking event will be from 6-8 p.m. in Market Square, showroom 272, and will feature “Ignite Session”. Designed to generate awareness, stimulate thought and create action on a subject, Ignite Sessions will offer a fast-paced and exciting way for attendees to engage.
The Ignite Sessions will focus on Leveraging Technology to Grow Your Business, and feature experts from Best Buy for Business, FurnitureDealer.net, PROFITsystems, Inc., and R&A Marketing. Attendees will then attend five-minute presentations by the experts—attending each table to learn sage advice. After 20 minutes, they will share their biggest takeaways, and how they plan to use the ideas from the exchange in their individual businesses.
“The Ignite Sessions gives NGN members an opportunity to learn from the experts and from each other,” said Advisory Committee member, Alex Macias. “It will add another level of education to our already great networking events. And since the event is for two hours, there will be plenty of time to learn and network with each other.”
The Next Generation-NOW Chatter over Cocktails is sponsored by Comfortaire, International Market Centers (IMC) and FurnitureDealer.net. It is a hosted community of the National and Western Home Furnishings Associations.
