NOLN Quick: It’s Speed Dating Business Style

April 1, 2018
Quick, presented by NOLN, is the new way to get business done. Both of NOLN's Quick events have been great successes, and we've heard awesome reports of operators who have gotten a lot of business done at Quick.

Here at NOLN, we just wrapped up our second Quick event. Quick, presented by NOLN, is the new way to get business done.

The first Quick event of 2018 was held February 12-14 in Nashville, Tennessee. Like every Quick event, we had 20 operators and 20 vendors attend. Vendors and operators were paired together and had one-on-one private meetings throughout the two days of action.

When we weren’t in meetings, the vendors and operators chowed down on some Nashville staples — Martin’s BBQ and Hattie B’s Hot Chicken. As if the food wasn’t good enough, we took in some great Nashville action on the evening of February 13.

NOLN took the group right down the street to Bridgestone Arena, where we watched the Nashville Predators take on the St. Louis Blues on the hockey rink. Our group of Quick vendors and operators had a great time — and it was a nail biter with the Preds coming back to win in overtime!

“Let me say that this ‘conference’ is probably the best ‘conference’ for anyone in the business. I’ve gained so much knowledge and a network of potential help. This is an invaluable tool for anyone that is new to the business or even thinking about getting into the business. Please keep doing this and finding new or interested folks and inviting them.” –operator

Next Quick Event Coming September 2018

NOLN is excited to announce that we are planning our next Quick event — right around the corner in September 2018. We are heading to the West Coast, and we are already taking operator applications.

If you would like the opportunity to get business done efficiently with high-quality vendors, let NOLN give you your time back with Quick. During two days of action, you’ll meet with 20 vendors who are ready to talk business. Each short meeting takes place in the privacy of a vendor’s suite, guaranteeing uninterrupted, productive discussions.

“We learned a lot, both from vendors as well as operators. Everyone has said they would be more than happy to help us in anyway they can. We will be doing business with at least a couple of the vendors and look forward to maintaining some relationships with the operators.” –operator
Before the event, we will send attendees binders with a full profile of each company they are meeting with. That way, you can assess your own business needs to determine how each of the meetings planned for you can offer solutions for your business.

During the event, you will get to meet with 20 vendors in short meetings, in the privacy of their suites. You can discuss your business, your problems, your needs and uncover some of those solutions you’ve been looking for. Plus, we’ve built in networking time so you can talk to other operators attending, as well!

We’ll have a lot of fun, too! One of the best parts of our Quick event in Nashville was the social time at the Predators Hockey game. Even though we won’t be taking you to the ice in September, we have an event planned you will love — and it’s sure to rival the fun we had at the Preds game!

One of the best perks of Quick is that qualified operators will be fully hosted by NOLN — that’s right, we pay for the airfare, hotel, meals, transfers and scheduled networking events. That leaves more money in your pocket for you to do business with the great vendors we bring to you at Quick!

“There were many great things about Quick. I would start with the exceptional care provided to us by the Quick team. Anything we needed was addressed immediately and with concern. Beyond that, the networking time was invaluable. The intimacy of the meal times as well as the great hockey event provided the right balance to interact both professionally (business) and socially, which is equally valuable in building business relationships.” –vendor

“The best part of Quick is having the operators out of their facilities at a neutral site where they aren’t distracted and can really discuss their business. And getting to spend time with them at the social events and getting to know them on a personal level is what makes Quick unique.” –vendor
