NEW YORK -- From advertising and technology, to fashion, entertainment, sports, and more, BizBash has curated its 2014 list of New York’s Top 100 Events—and has named the Progressive Insurance New York Boat Show to this exclusive list. To choose and rank the Top 100 list, BizBash considers several factors including economic impact, buzz, innovation, and the event’s prominence within the communities it intends to serve.
The world’s first and longest-running boat show takes place annually at the Javits Center, attracting thousands of visitors from across the region to enjoy the recreational boating lifestyle and providing sales momentum for marine manufacturers and the State and Tri-State boat dealers, marinas and other small businesses. Ranked fifth in U.S. sales* of power boat, engines, trailers and accessories, boating means big business in New York, and the show provides consumers who are ready to make a purchase the unique opportunity to take advantage of deals on hundreds of new boats and marine accessories and get acquainted with the boating lifestyle through educational clinics and nautical attractions for all ages.
"New York's event calendar has no shortage of influential gatherings that take place year after year. The landscape is diverse and certainly gives other cities a run for their money when it comes to big names, fund-raising numbers, and press mentions," says BizBash executive editor Anna Sekula. "But it certainly changes, too. The past few years have seen the thriving local tech scene lead to a number of prominent conferences, from Internet Week to the New York Tech Meetup and Wired's BizCon. And there are new entries alongside long-established events, like the Forbes 400 Summit on Philanthropy, the Frieze Art Fair, and Governors Ball Music Festival.”
