GNEX – The Global Meeting of Minds – takes place, Feb. 2 – 5, 2016, in one of America’s most celebrated cities – the Big Easy – at the historic Ritz Carlton New Orleans.
“GNEX brings together the key decision-makers as well as exciting new entrants in the market,” says Robert A. Kobek, president and CEO, CustomerCount. “You have the opportunity to meet face-to-face and really get to know the people you want to do business with. Each year, the sessions are relevant, and the dialogue engaging. Led by an impressive group of industry leaders, they provide insights on where the industry is headed.”
As a featured speaker at GNEX 2015, Kobek led a session on Customer Profiling, sharing insights on the importance of customizing communications based on the customer’s known preferences. His company, CustomerCount, collects, measures and reports on customer feedback through branded, customized online surveys. The company’s innovative customer feedback solution produces comprehensive reports with insights to improve company processes and build customer loyalty.
“We’re delighted to welcome back CustomerCount as a GNEX 2016 sponsor,” comments Paul Mattimoe, president and CEO, Perspective Group. “Bob is a longtime industry leader. Over the years, his company has provided invaluable insights that have helped countless companies strengthen their bottom line.”
Each year, GNEX takes place in a different premier destination. Previous venues include: Atlantis, Paradise Island, Bahamas; Ritz Carlton Cancun, Mexico; Beverly Wilshire Hotel Beverly Hills, Calif.; Ritz Carlton Sarasota, Florida; and Manchester Grand Hyatt, San Diego, Calif.
On the eve of Mardi Gras, GNEX 2016 moves the conference to the iconic Ritz Carlton New Orleans in the French Quarter. Delegates will be able to walk to the city’s famous restaurants, bars and entertainment venues. Back at the hotel, accommodations are elegant; Ritz-Carlton Spa® New Orleans offers more than 100 treatments; and the Davenport Lounge treats guests to live music by Jeremy Davenport, a.k.a. the “prince of New Orleans jazz.”
GNEX attracts senior-level executives from more than 120 companies around the world. This year, the networking-focused resort and shared ownership conference is on track to set a new attendance record, with 100 registered delegates within weeks after tickets became available.
One of the resort and shared ownership industry’s leading conferences, GNEX has delivered some of the most open dialogue among industry leaders in recent history. Since its debut, GNEX has helped to create countless new business relationships and strategic partnerships.
