Venues for a New York State of Mind

Top Picks

From the show stopping brilliance of Broadway to the electrifying energy of Times Square and the extravagance of Fifth Avenue, there are certain experiences you can only have in New York City. Out of all the major destinations in the U.S., New York has a charm that few others can replicate with a sense of grandiosity and luxury coupled with urban appeal where you can find food carts and street performers and stay up all night in a late-night diner. It’s where artists and business executives mingle, and the home of many national treasures from the Statue of Liberty to the World Trade Center Memorial.

In the city that never sleeps, there’s also the chance for meetings that lead to incredibly productive days. More than 60 million people traveled to New York City in 2016, according to Crain’s Business, with many accounting for conferences and meetings that utilized more than 2 million square feet of convention space. While hotels dot every corner of the New York City landscape, there are also hidden, unique gems in every neighborhood and borough as well.

If you’re looking for a traditional meeting venue, AMA New York Conference Center has all the creature comforts for attendees, including ergonomic chairs, rooms fully equipped with A/V, and lounges for breakouts. There’s also the thrill of meeting at MetLife Stadium, home of the New York Giants and the New York Jets football teams, with multiple indoor and outdoor spaces and stadium clubs designed by world-renowned architect David Rockwell that make attendees feel like champions, too.
