If I’m a customer, can I get help with some product features?

Yes! We will have the XBert Bar where you can talk with a Nextiva XBert about your current product usage and they can suggest some helpful features that you might not be using to the fullest extent, or even different features you might not have considered before.

We will also have a cool area where you can play with some of the Nextiva products in a hands-on experiential way called the XBert Experience where Nextiva XBerts will show you the pro tips and tricks on how to maximize your Nextiva investment. Look for both of these areas in the main foyer near registration and the ballrooms.

Dietary Restrictions/Meals

When you register for NextCon, there is a question about dietary restrictions where you can notate any allergies or preferences in your registration form so we can do our best to accommodate them. Most meals will be served buffet style and all gluten-free and vegetarian items will be clearly marked.

Recommended Attire

Business casual attire is suggested for all conference functions. Meeting room temperatures are always cool, so we suggest wearing layered clothes for maximum comfort and flexibility.

For evening events, resort casual attire is recommended. This includes polo-type shirts, sundresses, button-up tops, skirts, linen pants or nice shorts.

How much does it cost?

There are two types of passes you can buy:

General Access Pass ($599 Regular and $799 at the door) is your basic conference access with no bells and whistles – no meals are included except the cocktails and hors d’oeuvres at the Welcome Reception Happy Hour on Monday night, so all other meals would be on your own.

VIP Access Pass ($799 Regular and $999 at the door) gives you everything:

  • Lunch on Monday and Tuesday
  • Priority reserved up-front seating in the general sessions
  • Access to Speed Mentoring Sessions with business experts (four 20-minute mentoring sessions)
  • Ticket to the exclusive VIP party and concert Tuesday night featuring international music legend Bret Michaels (lead singer of Poison).
