“We needed a digital space to build our multicultural network of female leadership, and elevate the voices of our trailblazing speakers, performers and partners. Once we had the NexTech virtual tour, we knew we found our VVWS 2021 home!” said Founder & CEO, Shannon Rohrer-Phillips. “As the COVID-19 pandemic and its consequences threatened our growth and momentum, we quickly decided to pivot to find the best technology platform available that we could partner with to deliver our mission. We chose NexTech because of their ability to create an innovative, cutting edge virtual summit experience for our stakeholders and, in addition to the technology, we were beyond impressed with both their team and customer service.”
