New York City is blessed with some of the world's most amazing architecture. It can be a great backdrop to use for a major corporate event. This includes venues that span an outdoor inspiration point, historic banks, a fashion venue that is adorned with two peacock cro...

If your destination corporate meeting attendees love to golf while at destination corporate meetings, we have found a concept that could soon replace the random F&B cart: Drone delivery.

If your destination corporate meeting attendees are looking for a way to loosen up, New York has become a capital for personalized stretchers. And it has nothing to do with a cocktail hour.

We are also not talking about the latest fads in training or even personal train...

We have found a new beer garden venue in New York that celebrates women who have helped transform the entire industry.

We are loving Danny Meyer's new venture in downtown New York that puts fine dining and event options into the sky. What we really like is that no one is over-hyping it, which is unusual for fans of Danny Meyer.

And that's the key. We are seeing top chefs and mixologists...

We have this culture in New York where everyone starts thinking about the next summer somewhere around January. For meeting planners, that is way too late. We are seeing all kinds of wellness, fishing, wine tasting, food-to-table menu and other holistic trends that are...

It's no secret that bourbon gets the stingiest of after-hours destination corporate meeting attendees excited about the event. We have found a unique twist that freezes the drink and pairs it with unique elements like caviar, creme fraiche and boiled egg.

Events and galas at art galleries have been a huge trend in New York City. We are seeing it spread to new trendy areas like Hoboken. This city, located across the Hudson River from Manhattan, has already seen hot new hotels like the W open, and is increasingly becoming...

Your US-based destination corporate meeting attendees don't have to travel across the pond to play at "Saint Andrews." We have one less than 30 minutes from Manhattan.

If your destination corporate meeting attendees are here in New York City being served basic vanilla ice cream at either a meeting break or gala event, an enormous creative opportunity is being missed.

We really like where the New York City Mexican dining scene has gone over the past year. We are seeing a shift from trendy to authentic in both menus and decor. The newest entry is opening later this month in Union Square, and it features a trip to downtown Tulum, Mexi...
