NEXT Conference set for Sept. 14-15 in Savannah, Georgia | Furniture Today Staff -- Furniture Today, February 10, 2016
HIGH POINT, Feb. 11, 2016 - Progressive Business Media has rebranded its Future Leadership Conference for 2016 and is announcing a new format and venue for the event.
Set for Sept. 14-15, 2016, at the Westin Savannah Harbor in Savannah, Ga., the NEXT Conference was created with a mission “to provide the home furnishings industry with a path for future success, built by innovation, insight and interaction.”
A complete agenda will be released soon, but the conference will follow an interactive, high-engagement format designed to encourage and explore fresh ideas.
“The home furnishings industry and retail as a whole are changing so quickly, and we realized that in order to keep pace with all the changes, we needed to change this event as well,” said Jenny Heinzen York, editorial director of the conference. “We see this as more than just a conference: This is an idea share, a meeting of some of the most forward-thinkers in our industry and beyond … the leaders, up-and-comers and early adopters who will be shaping the future of home furnishings.”
The conference rebranding will be tied into a partner e-newsletter, video series and more in 2016, in an effort to keep the conversation and idea flow moving all year long.
“The NEXT Conference will be a fantastic two-day event, building on the impressive success of the first two Future Leadership conferences,” Heinzen York said. “But beyond that, the NEXT initiative will also generate ongoing content and opportunities that will do even more to help move this industry ahead.”
PBM has secured a reduced room rate of $192 for the event. For more information, visit the conference site here or contact Heather Thompson, senior conferences and events manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
