New York City: Why NYC is the Perfect Conference, Convention or Meeting Destination

The most populated city in the U.S., New York City is home to more than 8-million residents, and home to an array of meeting venues, meeting spaces, and meeting room options, making it a fantastic business meeting destination. While locals bustle speedily through this massive metropolis, visitors are equally embraced. But as any New Yorker can attest, The Big Apple offers so much more than the bright lights of Times Square. Rarely do tourists, and even residents themselves, think to leave the island of Manhattan. In addition to its myriad meeting venues, from large hotel banquet halls to meeting rooms at the top of skyscrapers, Manhattan provides public transportation options to help you explore the rest of New York City.

A short Subway ride can bring you to the Brooklyn Museum and Brooklyn Botanical Garden.  Situated right next to one another on the edge of Prospect Park, these two attractions boast unique architecture, and unbeatable curated content.  The botanical gardens extend back into the park, and are a wonderful respite from the city.

Back on the island, during summer catching the Staten Island Ferry, a ferry boat that will ride you about and around the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, is a great way to see the historical sites of the city and get a little bit of sea air. Once you’re off the boat, walk a little uptown and check out Chelsea Pier- a wonderful place to catch up outside of the meeting venue; hit a few golf balls, have a drink and watch New Yorkers pass you by.

It would be impossible to capture all of the excitement that NYC can offer conference attendees and meeting planners in just a few paragraphs, so the best solution is to see for yourself and plan your next destination meeting in the Big Apple!
