MCAM Next Gen is an excellent opportunity to network and engage with up and coming industry leaders. It cultivates an atmosphere for new bleeding edge industry ideas and concepts. Often is the case, we as young professionals enter into a system with deep treads and a dated methods. Next Gen gives us a space to consider how the wheel could be reinvented with fresh perspectives and emerging concepts. Additionally it adds real value in the way of face to face conversations and relationships. In the age of digital communication, it can be simple to forget the impact of the hand shake deal. It is imperative to the future of our industry that we create lasting connections built on foundations like MCAM Next Gen.
