In addition to our biannual women’s executive summits, this year we’ve added a third event — the all-new #NEXTDC19.
A lot of you may be wondering: What’s #NEXTDC19? How is it different? And which NEXT should I attend? Read on to learn about the differences (and similarities) between #NEXTSummer19 and #NEXTDC19.
The logistics: Chicago in Summer, DC in Autumn
#NEXTSummer19 is the second of NEXT’s biannual women’s executive summits. These events are listed under the #NEXT name. We hosted #NEXTFeb19 in February. Our August event, #NEXTSummer19 will be held in Chicago on August 26-27th.
#NEXTDC19 is an all-new annual event that will be held in Washington DC. These events are listed under the #NEXTDC name. Our inaugural #NEXTDC event will be held at Kimpton Hotel Monaco in Washington DC on November 18-19th.
Sessions and speakers: #NEXTSummer19 vs #NEXTDC19
Sessions at #NEXTSummer19 focus on providing competitive intel in operations and strategy, and are designed for senior executives who want to know how other lenders are handling today’s top business challenges. Sessions feature high ranking executives from top mortgage lenders across the country. Each speaks from her own experience on a topic for which she is an experienced subject matter expert. Past session topics have included: Avoiding roadblocks in system implementations; how to evaluate new technology; creating a RESPA-compliant marketing program; technology and the borrower experience; and more.
Sessions at #NEXTDC19 focus on housing policy, and are designed for senior executives who need to know the policies and regulations that can and will impact their businesses going forward. Sessions feature top Washington insiders, policy influencers and fintech luminaries. Topics will include: the economy and affordable housing issues; state of play in legislature; housing finance policy and its impact on housing in 2020; and more.
The similarities: NEXT quality you can rely on
Both #NEXTSummer19 and #NEXTDC19 were designed to bring together the top women executives in mortgage lending. While one event (#NEXTSummer19) takes place in Chicago, and the other (#NEXTDC19) takes place in Washington DC, both events will be hosted at upscale boutique properties that deliver the luxurious touches and high touch guest service that helps NEXT deliver the warm, welcoming environment that has become one of its major differentiators.
One of the main reasons that NEXT’s executive attendees come to NEXT events is to meet, mingle and reconnect with other accomplished, high ranking executives. Therefore, both events will offer plenty of time for networking. Both venues offer lovely onsite food and beverage outlets, and both are located in beautiful locations within two of the country’s most picturesque and visually stunning cities.
