Meet Our Team

Our Convention Sales team is your direct and personal connection to New York City before you book an event. Your representative will help you narrow down venues and hotels, distribute RFPs to a network of hospitality businesses, collect and review proposals, and coordinate and accompany you on site visits. The team can also help you engage with services and vendors to kick off the planning process. Convention Sales is at your disposal from the first bid to the final post-convention follow-up.

When it’s time to choose a destination, give us a call at 212-484-1218, email us at conventionsales@nycgo.com or submit an RFP and make your next meeting or event—big or small—unforgettable.
