ROSEVILLE, Calif. — The North American Home Furnishings Assn. will host three Next Generation Now events at the Las Vegas Market on Monday, Jan. 27.

In a market seminar from 9-10 a.m., a panel of young retail experts will discuss how they use social media, blogging, and mobile to attract the next generation of shoppers. The event, moderated by MicroD, will be in the NAHFA Retailer Resource Center seminar room, World Market Center B-1050.

The lunches will be with Kerry Lebensburger, president of sales, Ashley; Bob Maricich, CEO, International Market Centers; Jeff Child, president, R.C.
