VENUE - The Cutting Room

44 East 32nd Street, New York City (map)

A unique expansion from our core topic - fantastic forays into live entertainment after the panel discussions on Monday evening November 11th will not only augment the learning exchange but help provide an experience for all attendees far beyond traditional networking. Similar to City Winery, our last year’s conference venue, The Cutting Room is not a hotel. The typical conference distractions (concierge, bell hops, that always-present plethora of tourists) will not interfere with the focus, or the fun. The acoustics are superb, with no second guessing as to what was just said from either panel members or those with comments and questions.  


Our conferences include evening live entertainment. Upon completion of panel discussions on Monday November 11th, we will provide exquisite entertainment for attendees to enjoy a variety of shows. We strongly believe that an inspirational and stimulating environment enhances the networking experience among conference participants.
