HIGH POINT, N.C.–The Next Generation-NOW group will host its “Chatter Over Cocktails” reception this Sunday, April 22, at High Point Market. To be held from 5-6 p.m. in Café Blossom in the Fairmont Designs showroom, C867 Commerce Wing in the International Home Furnishings Center, the cocktail reception will feature “speed networking” for the first 20 minutes. Attendees will then continue to mingle afterwards while enjoying cocktails and hors d’oeuvres.
“Speed networking is a great way to socialize and meet people you don’t know. During our first speed networking event, I was able to chat with people that I wouldn’t have normally gravitated to,” said Nick Gates of Gates Furniture and Next Generation-NOW committee chair. “Also, it’s great to chat with people who have a common technology understanding—you don’t have to explain Facebook and Twitter to fellow Next Generation-NOW members. They get it already! If you are a part of the next generation and haven’t attended one of our events, I would encourage you to stop by and see what we have going on.”
The Next Generation-NOW Chatter over Cocktails is being hosted by Fairmont Designs, FurnitureDealer.net and the Western Home Furnishings Association.
