New York – Conference

Back to Case Studies

The brief

Our longest standing client wanted to make a break from the norm and, rather than hold their annual conference in Europe, they wanted to take it to the USA for the very first time. We needed to find a luxury hotel that could accommodate 250 delegates, with at least 100 twin rooms, and host our clients’ annual three day conference in downtown New York. Alongside this, three offsite dinner venues had to be sourced. We needed to find one venue that was quirky and trendy, another that had the WOW factor and a third which was typically American. Our client wanted us to also organise an afternoon of excursions for their delegates around New York.

The solution

The Conrad New York was the perfect solution for an event of this size. Located next to the Financial District and overlooking the Hudson River, the hotel catered excellently to all our clients’ needs. We chose a West Village tattoo studio for our quirky venue, a rooftop space with 360 degree views of Manhattan for a venue with the WOW factor and a pizza restaurant for a typically American venue. All three venues were completely unique with fantastic atmospheres and exceptional service. We also organised multiple excursions around New York City, which ranged from Hip-Hop Tours to TV & Movie Tours, so there really was something for everyone.

The verdict

It was a fantastic success. Our client described the event as ‘flawless..a conference to end all conferences’. We are now working hard to ensure that we can top this accolade at next year’s event!
