NYC & Company Talks: Nurturing NYC’s Nightlife
Monday, May 13, 2019
Affirming our reputation as “the city that never sleeps,” New York City’s world-famous nightlife is a vital part of our tourism landscape. Much of its appeal is owed to the small businesses that diversify the City’s vibrant after-hours scene.
In this installment, NYC & Company hosted Ariel Palitz, senior executive director, MOME Office of Nightlife, and Gregg Bishop, commissioner, NYC Small Business Services, for a conversation about helping member businesses thrive in this competitive tourism sector. Palitz and Bishop addressed how small businesses operate and grow, explored the resources available to them from SBS and shared the initiatives of the Office of Nightlife.
We plan to build a page on our members-only website to provide you with resources and important links. For the time being, please visit the below links for more information:
