The annual meeting of NYC & Company, the travel and tourism department for the city of New York, was held on February 20th 2013 at Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center. The news was ALL good! In 2012 NYC & Company met its 2015 goal of over 50 million tourist visitors to New York City! Already in 2013 hotel bookings are 11% ahead of last year, and most notably for the New York trade show display designers, the Javits Center and hotel venues attracted 300,000 more trade show attendees than Las Vegas in 2012.
For those of us over 50 this may recall the Who hit from the 70’s. It’s an appropriate question today as many businesses reassess who and what they are in light of the minute-by-minute changes all around us. I realize this is a basic question, but forgetting your identity has been the demise of many companies, organizations and even countries.
