Sharon Enright was named president and COO of NXT Events Media Group. The event planning firm was launched last year by her longtime colleague and collaborator, Britton Jones. In this new position, Enright will be in the forefront of the expansion of NXT’s operations.

Enright started her tradeshow career with Conference Management Corporation and Reed Exhibitions, which led to a job as EVP of Business Journals’ Trade Show Division. NXT Events Media Group has a strong focus on the experiential success of meetings and exhibitions, which Enright said would guide the company’s growth “either through acquisition, partnership or launches.”
