AMERICAS – New York City’s official marketing, tourism and partnership organisation, NYC & Company, has expanded its Delegate Discount Pass programme for 2015, offering savings at 110 New York City attractions, restaurants and shops.
The pass is available to all meeting and convention attendees, exhibitors, meeting planners and event staff, and is valid throughout New York City’s five boroughs.
In the past six months, the scheme has added 40 more suppliers to its list.
Fred Dixon, NYC & Company president and CEO, said: “The Delegate Discount Pass allows business travellers to experience more of the city during their visit at an affordable price, and the expansion of the programme is a proof point of its continued success.”
More than 425,000 delegates from 50 conventions and trade shows have taken advantage of the pass to date.
To redeem offers, visitors must show a printed or mobile version of the Delegate Discount Pass, provided by NYC & Company’s Destination Services team, to convention, trade show and corporate meeting planners.
NYC & Company also recently released figures showing that, in 2014, New York City welcomed 6.1m meeting and convention delegates, up from 5.9m delegates who spent approximately $5bn in the five boroughs in 2013.
