WHAT MAKES NEXUS DIFFERENT?

NEXUS is all about collaboration and being the solution to many of your business and professional development needs. NEXUS has something for everyone from your team from executive leadership and business development to R&D, sales, human resources, and operations.

A top differentiator of NEXUS is the personal connections it will provide. NEXUS will engage bakers and suppliers in team-to-team meetings called Spark Sessions. Spark Sessions are a secure, private meeting space where members of your team can collaborate with decision-making team members from other companies. Where everyone is together, providing information, discussing opportunities, and sharing experiences about the latest products, innovations, and services that could advance your company. Spark Sessions are where the business of baking gets done.

NEXUS will also provide time and space for your team to meet together sharing the ideas from multiple contributors in the creation of new innovations. We’ve tried to think of everything, so the NEXUS schedule has time built in to nurture current relationships, review projects, and discuss the needs from both sides of the industry.
