Nextiva pulled out all the stops for its NextCon16 conference in Scottsdale, Arizona, Nov. 14-16. Big-name speakers, flashy theatrics and a major product announcement kept the audience engaged.
While the conference catered primarily to budding entrepreneurs who are looking for advice on how to build their business, Nextiva dedicated a significant portion of its time to meeting with partners and rolling out a new communications platform.
