New York City is always changing. This short video covers what’s new and what’s ahead.


New York City’s excitement, energy and value are unparalleled, and holding an event here practically guarantees record attendance. Here’s a look at some key developments across the five boroughs, including new and renovated meetings hotels, infrastructure developments, recently opened attractions and the latest in world-class entertainment, as well as a look at what’s ahead for the City.


No city in the world can match New York City’s unparalleled energy or the tremendous pride New Yorkers take in opening their arms to the City’s visitors. There is always something fun, exciting, new and inviting to do here, no matter what kind of experience you prefer. With Broadway shows, outdoor movies or concerts, tours of museums or historical attractions, cuisine from every world culture and more, there are endless opportunities of discovery in each of the City’s five boroughs—the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island.


  • New York City welcomed a record 65.1 million total visitors in 2018, comprising 51.6 million domestic and 13.5 million international travelers.
