The Global Networking Experience, commonly known as GNEX Conference is synonymous with attracting senior-level executives to different stunning locations each year, creating unique networking environments, pushing the envelope with interactive general sessions and delivering spectacular social events. GNEX 2018 will be held 26 – 28 February 2018, Miami, FL, on the world’s first mega-yacht venue, the $40 million, 228ft SeaFair Grand Luxe that recently completed a further $10 million renovation to provide a truly unique event venue that boasts more than 22,000 square feet of meeting space.
In addition to some spectacular social events onboard the mega-yacht, event organizers have now revealed that the evening event scheduled for 27th February will be called “The EPIC Party” as it is being held at the luxurious waterfront Kimpton EPIC, Miami.
The EPIC Party will be held on the soaring 16th-floor pool terrace. Starting with soaking in a picture-postcard Miami sunset, this pool-side party will have an extended premium open-bar, signature cocktails named after our signature sponsors, gourmet food and dazzling entertainment before continuing the party under the stars.
The EPIC Party will ooze with Miami / Latin flavors and culture, with an ambiance to match. Dress code is casual – and the pool is OPEN for those wanting to also bring bathing suits.
GNEX Conferences focus heavily on networking, actively encouraging new business relationships through its planned networking events and personal introductions via event staff. The 2018 event will kick off with a new and innovative session entitled “The 60-Second Pitch”, where a group of pre-determined decision-making resort development executives will listen to quick-fire 60-second product and service pitches from selected attending vendors.
Shortly afterwards is an opportunity to participate in Speed Networking, where each participant will have two-minutes of one-on-one time with approximately 30 other attendees where they can swap business cards and determine if they want to meet later in the event to continue conversations. This event is a fan-favorite and this year is held mid-morning and accompanied by Mimosa’s and Bloody Mary’s, plus soft drinks and pastries.
“Our conference focuses on delivering the most effective business-making environment for our attendees. The success of this focus has been seen in year on year growth for the past 7 consecutive years.” Says Paul Mattimoe, President & CEO, Perspective Group; hosts of GNEX Conference.
GNEX 2018 also offers high-value educational sessions. Industry related “X-TALKS” offer short 10-minute solo speaker sessions covering a variety of topics, while guest speakers from outside the industry provide a different angle or approach on common issues and trends that affect all industries.
Will Blackmon, NFL Player will also make an appearance as a guest speaker, addressing the mostly C-Level audience about “The Art of Resiliency – Setbacks, Obstacles & Tragedy”.
Will Blackmon, currently a free agent, has already played 10 seasons in the NFL, formerly for the Washington Redskins, Seattle Seahawks, Jacksonville Jaguars and Arizona Rattlers. Earlier in his career, he played college football for the Boston College Eagles, and was drafted in the fourth round of the 2006 NFL Draft by the Green Bay Packers. He also won a Super Bowl ring when playing for the New York Giants after defeating the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI.
