Manager Business Development Trevira CS
NEXT Events stepped up and offered a virtual meeting platform to bring specifiers and suppliers within the hospitality and contract market together, in a time when traveling and physical meetings came to a halt. Our virtual meetings, however, offered a fantastic opportunity to connect us to an important audience regardless of our limitations. The meetings have allowed easy, cost efficient, and value-added opportunities to present our brands and learn about the needs of the buyers and the industry.

I wanted to thank you for coordinating the meetings yesterday. Our team really enjoyed the conversation with the potential clients, and feel this is certainly how the relationships with prospects will be created in the future. The process was seamless and was done without the hassle of traveling for both our team and the client. Thank you so much for always thinking 2 steps ahead and being innovative.
Thank you for inviting me to participate in the NEXT virtual meeting yesterday. It’s a great platform to connect industry members, while promoting a good cause for the industry through COVID-19 Cares fund.
We had a great experience with the virtual Zoom meeting with the client. Not being able to currently travel, the opportunity to meet clients via NEXT to stay connected is key to our mutual success. We are also honored to be a part of Hospitality Cares.

With varying travel situations today, participating in NEXT Virtual Meetings is a great way to have focused, tailored time to meet with new vendors and learn about their product in a low-pressure and casual mode. It can also be a productive way to bring up specific projects, start generating ideas together, and finding a solution with this one-on-one time.

NEXT Virtual is a creative way to connect industry professionals and allow the world to keep turning. With there being so many unknowns today it has been refreshing to focus on these one to one meetings, connect and be educated about products and services. While a face to face meeting is ideal this could be a great platform in the future to connect professionals, find solutions and spur creativity with only a commitment of thirty minutes. Who does not have thirty minutes to share?

Now more than ever we need to engage our customers and prospects and we are in the era of virtual meetings being our only opportunity. We have found the NEXT event format to be hugely beneficial. It is important for vendors like us to adapt quickly to the need to provide professional content to our customers and events like this have forced us to up our “Zoom” game. We have enjoyed our meetings thus far and will continue to participate in as many as we can. Bravo to Michael who is always thinking ahead. With hospitality being such an important part of our business, it is vital we stay in touch with our customers. I can’t wait to continue to grow this segment through new outlets like these virtual one-on-one meetings.

NEXT Virtual Meetings has provided our industry with the “NEXT” best solution during these times of our “new normal”. We are all missing the times where we could collaborate in-person either at trade shows or in our offices, though having the opportunity to video conference with modern day technology has been super beneficial! NEXT’s solution to bring designers and vendors one-on-one meetings virtually is spot-on! We are all in this together and will get through this together – maintaining relationships is very important and it’s not always about design, rather keeping connected.
