“GNEX provides excellent opportunities to spend quality time with the people you want to do business with,” says Barry Robinson, President and Managing Director, Wyndham Vacation Resorts Asia Pacific. “Every year, the speakers are impressive, the topics are relevant and the networking opportunities are outstanding.”

Celebrated Venue, Continued Growth
On the eve of Mardi Gras, GNEX 2016 brings delegates to the New Orleans French Quarter. Set on iconic Canal Street, the Ritz-Carlton New Orleans will put guest within easy walking distance to renowned restaurants, bars and entertainment venues. The hotel is housed in the refurbished 1908 Beaux-Arts Maison Blanche building and recalls the grandeur of an antebellum mansion with opulent furnishings and décor. Among its luxe onsite amenities: The Ritz-Carlton Spa® New Orleans, offering more than 100 treatments; M Bistro, serving local and regional farm-to-table cuisine; and Davenport Lounge, featuring live music by the hotel’s headline entertainer, trumpeter Jeremy Davenport, called the “prince of New Orleans jazz.”
Since its debut in 2011, GNEX has enjoyed year-on-year growth. Last year’s conference drew 200 senior-level executives from 120 companies across six continents. GNEX 2016 promises to set new records, with 100 registered delegates just weeks after tickets became available.
