The Next Generation-NOW Group to Meet and Mingle in Vegas

LAS VEGAS-The Next Generation-NOW (NGN) group will host three events during the winter Las Vegas Market: a networking breakfast at 8 a.m. followed by an educational Retailer Panel Discussion on Monday, Jan. 28 and the NGN Bash on Tuesday, Jan. 29.

The Retailer Panel Discussion on Monday morning, from 9-10 a.m. in the RRC, C-496, will focus on Multiple Generations = Many Opportunities. Panelists from Royal Furniture and Ivan Smith Furniture will share their ideas and experiences of working within multi-generational family businesses. All attendees are invited to enjoy a hot waffle breakfast at 8 a.m. prior to the panel discussion.

The semi-annual NGN Bash will be held on Tuesday from 5-8 p.m. in the One-Six Club on the 16th Floor of Building B. Sponsored by Coaster, the NGN Bash will have attendees "rolling the dice" while networking, enjoying hors d'oeuvres and drinks.

During each NGN event, participants have the opportunity to drop off their business cards and be entered to win one of three all-expense paid trips to the 2013 Home Furnishings Industry Conference, June 2-4 in New Orleans, La. "We are so grateful to have Ashley Furniture Industries committed to this group as well as the Home Furnishings Industry Conference," said Alex Macias, NGN marketing committee chair. "As our benefactor sponsor, Ashley clearly understands the connection between the Next Generation-NOW group and the next generation of their customers."
