Meet NY is a one-of-a-kind mini trade show, bringing together association, and non-profit leaders, convention, corporate and meeting planners and their hospitality partners for an afternoon and evening of networking, cocktails, and a silent auction, capped off with a Broadway theater experience to see Tina - The Tina Turner Musical. Meet NY starts at 3:30 pm on Wednesday, Feb. 26 with a presentation of Michael Cerbelli’s: The Hot List™ and an interview by Tony nominated producer Jessica Genick with a crew member from Tina: The Tina Turner Musical. Then it's off to the races with the Meet NY mini trade show opening at 5 pm, where attendees will get to network, enjoy cocktails and conversation with Meet NY hospitality hosts and participate in our silent auction. We have an array of exciting new features that will be introduced this year to increase the attendee and host experience, making Meet NY an amazing event you don't ever want to miss.
