“We are thrilled with the new Port Lands site,” says NXNE President and Managing Director Michael Hollett, ” and we’ll definitely be back next year. As with any ‘first’ we got lots of things right and we got some things wrong. But we have 12 months to work out the bugs and make NXNE Port Lands an even better, fun-filled venue in a truly amazing setting. Thanks to everyone who joined us in this inaugural run. We appreciate your faith in NXNE and hope you had a great time.”
