Dear Friends and Partners,
Spring is fast approaching and there is so much to look forward to in New York City, such as brand-new hotels, meeting and event venues, Broadway shows, beloved iconic attractions and the many multicultural neighborhoods found citywide. We encourage you and your clients to check out our recently released 22 Reasons to Visit NYC in 2022 for a taste of what’s new and trending in the City’s five boroughs.
With coronavirus cases remaining very low, NYC has just recently lifted the vaccine requirement for indoor activities including at restaurants, gyms, cultural and entertainment spaces, and venues including the Javits Center (conference organizers can still choose to implement stricter regulations). Masks must be worn on public transit and in some spaces including Broadway theaters, and businesses and select cultural institutions, and attractions may still implement their own health and safety protocols, so it is recommended that delegates check on these details ahead of their travels.
During Women’s History Month and every month, we celebrate the remarkable women who make up our tourism, meetings and events industry—both in NYC and around the world—and encourage you to support female-owned and -led businesses across the five boroughs in your upcoming programs.
Please reach out to our team anytime we can be of assistance. Contact details are below. Thank you for your ongoing partnership and support!
It’s Time to Make It NYC: as the world’s most versatile destination for meetings, the City offers more options than ever to bring your event to life—like in-person and hybrid options, new and revamped venues, myriad exciting experiences for attendees and rigorous health and safety protocols. Start planning your next meeting now.
