a note from our founder

Hi there!

We started nxtevent over 20 years ago with a simple premise: always focus on what we can do next. Reinvention is a founding principle for us, not a reaction to current events or market conditions. While others might be going back to the drawing board, we’ve never left it. We survived & thrived after the dot-com bubble & the Great Recession, & we’re ready to do it again as the events industry comes roaring back from the Covid-19 pandemic.

Our secret is easy: we love what we do & we work hard. If that sounds like you, join us as we continue to lead the events industry… to what’s next!

Best,

Ally O’Connor (founder & CEO)

About us

We owe our 20+ years of success to our innovative spirit and industry expertise. Our focus is always on producing extraordinary, unique programs that deliver results beyond all expectations. We are truly partners to our clients, an extension of their teams that strategically and authentically matches each program’s goals with the destination. We have a dynamic, hybrid work environment that includes remote and in-person work at home, our offices, and client sites in Boston and around New England. In addition, we are:

Award winners

We’ve been recognized nationally and globally, time and again, for our creative designs, events, and solutions.

Collaborators

We’re all about our team, and we work together daily, whether it’s in person or remotely.

Growth focused

Live events are back! We’re ready to hire and grow quickly. We’re looking for new teammates who will lead our company and industry into the next 5 years, and who will grow internally into director- and executive-level roles.

Professionals

We are one of the only ADMEI (Association of Destination Management International) Certified Companies in Boston, a testament to our professionalism and commitment to excellence.

Respected

Our reputation, for delivering creative solutions and tactical execution on time and on budget with professionalism and a focus on adding value, precedes us. Our vendor and supplier relationships are close and considerate, allowing us to deliver our programs seamlessly and cost-effectively.

Scalable

We’re nimble and savvy by design. We draw on our teammates’ talents across all aspects of our business. That includes all our resources and contractors, in addition to our employees. We strongly believe in relationship management at all levels, as a program’s success is often measured by the team behind it.

Resourceful

We’re a regionally focused, world-class event and DMC team. We design and manage everything in house to be turnkey ready and perfect to the smallest detail.

Reliable

This has always been part of our team’s DNA, and it always will be.

What we offer you

If you join our team as one of our employees, we want you to succeed, grow, and love what you do. Taking care of you and your family matters to us. We know that when you’re happy, you bring that happiness to work with you, and it has a real, positive impact on the work we do together. To that end, here are some of the benefits we offer our teammates:

Competitive pay

We offer competitive compensation with bonuses and incentives.

Health insurance

We offer comprehensive health insurance plans.

Retirement

We offer a retirement program with a substantial employer match.

Development

At all levels, we encourage and incentivize our team members to pursue professional development opportunities, including industry certifications and educational events (meetings, conferences, retreats).

Travel

Though most of our business is in the Boston and New England region, if you’re interested in traveling, we’ll include you in opportunities to represent our company at tradeshows or events outside of New England.
