The events held in Detroit and Seattle will be in collaboration with Nexion Canada.

Nexion on the Road expands on 2015's NEX-Door series of events, said Nexion President Jackie Friedman. While NEX-Door events were intended for agents based in host cities, Nexion on the Road events have been designed so that agents in the United States and Canada can select the one they feel will be most beneficial to their business.
