Meet NY 2020 Host Table / Sponsorship Information


Welcome to the best hosted buyer opportunity in the Northeastern marketplace for those wishing to reach Association Executives, Meeting and Special Event planners.

Meet NY was designed by the New York Society of Association Executives in conjunction with a veteran group of suppliers who are responsible for selling their services to the Northeastern Association and Corporate Meeting Planning Community. We have partnered with our associate members to create this one of a kind client/customer showcase where qualified executives and planners are hosted complimentary to attend cutting edge industry education followed by a mini trade show/cocktail reception and a fabulous Broadway Show.

**Registration Policy
Hosts can use a maximum of 3 registrations for individuals from the company they represent for each tabletop purchased. The balance of the tickets must be used to invite qualified executives and/or meeting/event planners. For example:

  • 4 Meeting Planner/Executive guests and 2 host/exhibitors (Permitted)
  • 4 host/exhibitors and 2 Meeting Planner/Executive guests (Not permitted)

The goal of the event is to have more Meeting Planner/Executive guests in attendance.

Floor space at Meet NY is limited and our goal is to maximize the exposure and value that our hosts/sponsors and attendees receive. To do this we want to prioritize bringing meeting planners and high-level executives over additional host/sponsor staff where possible.
