Next Generation-NOW to Host Cocktail Reception at Las Vegas Market

Furniture World News on

The Next Generation-NOW group announced that it will host a "Chatter Over Cocktails" reception on Tuesday, August 2 at the Las Vegas Market. The cocktail reception will be from 5-6 p.m. in the One-Six Club on the 16th Floor of Building B.
 
During the reception, mentors from past generations will be on hand to share their stories and offer advice to the up and coming generation of the home furnishings industry.

"Networking and communication are two of the tenants of growth in the furniture industry. Without listening and talking to our peers about current issues, new ideas and even our frustrations, it would be impossible to make any significant strides forward in this industry. This generation not only has its peers to turn to but a sea of individuals from our previous generations," said Next Generation-NOW Committee Chair, Nick Gates, Gates Home Furnishings. "We have the opportunity at Next Generation-NOW to learn from and network with people who have been through many of the situations we are seeking answers to. Anyone looking for insight to where the furniture industry has been, where it is now and where it's going is encouraged to attend Next Generation NOW's 'Chatter Over Cocktails' event. There we will have the opportunity to learn, as the future of the furniture industry, from a group of mentors who are eager to extend their expertise and advice."
 
Sponsored by FurnitureDealer.net, cocktails and hors d'œuvres will be served as attendees enjoy great conversation and views of the Las Vegas skyline.
 
Launching during last year's August Las Vegas Market, the goal of the Next Generation-NOW is to provide professional development, networking and hosted forums and give voice to the unique needs of young furniture professionals through educational and networking events at Markets and industry conferences. The group has successfully hosted numerous networking events during Market and is moving forward on their own website and educational webinars.
