Napa Valley, California • March 8 - 11
The pandemic has accelerated the rate of tech adoption which has made delivering great digital products more important than ever. As digital product leaders, it's time to go beyond just 'moving the needle,' it's time to reinvent it.

After all... Life's short. Stand out.

In Case You Missed It

Because of ongoing COVID-19 safety concerns, we decided to push our Nexus 2021 event to March, 2022. But because we didn’t want to miss out on seeing you before the end of the year, we got together for our digital networking event, Nexus Connect and gave you the opportunity to rub-shoulders with other organizational leaders, hear a keynote from Nexient CEO Mark Orttung and walk away with relationships that you could carry into 2022 and beyond.

Blending a "from the land" philosophy with modern resort accommodations, each cottage, suite and home features a refined farm-house design paired with informal elegance.

Carneros  Resort  and Spa  offers easy  access to both  downtown  Napa  and Sonoma,  both only a 15-minute drive away. The resort is under one hour north of San Francisco, reached via Hwy. 12/121 in Napa.
