Today, September 24, 2013, is the New York City Hospitality Alliance’s one-year anniversary! (Click here to re-watch our launch party video.)
The outpouring of support we have received from the NYC hospitality industry has been tremendous. We have rapidly grown to approximately 1000 members throughout the five boroughs and established ourselves as a premier, independent association representing the NYC hospitality industry.
With the industry’s support, The Alliance can proudly look back on many accomplishments in our first year. We successfully advocated for numerous regulatory reforms, from Letter Grade inspections, to sidewalk café regulations, to labor laws and more. We have provided operational consulting to countless members, and 2000 hospitality industry professionals have attended our education and training seminars. We are confident that year two will be just as promising!
I’d like to extend a special thank you to our Founding Trustees, who had the vision to create an organization dedicated solely to representing the interests of NYC restaurants, nightlife venues, destination hotels and industry suppliers. Without their commitment and support, The Alliance would not have been possible. We also thank all of our members, Corporate Partners and everyone else who has supported our efforts this year. Your support and participation is the key to our ongoing success.
Lastly, I could not be prouder of The Alliance team for their hard work, dedication and passion for our industry. Our industry could not have better representatives. It’s an honor to represent the NYC hospitality industry and we look forward to serving you in year two.
If you operate a restaurant, nightlife venue or hotel in NYC and are not already a member then we hope you too will join The Alliance to support and share in our ongoing growth and success. Click here to learn more about membership!
