Event Ideas of the Summer Season

The sky seems to be the limit when it comes to types of event locations in New York City. Gone are the days of basic and traditional city venues. With beautiful weather and the vacation vibes in the air- now is the time to step outside the box and plan a unique event in the giant playground we call New York City! Creativity has evolved the events industry to creatively execute any theme at anywhere your heart desires. The key to standing out from the rest of the summer events starts with a venue that leaves a lasting impression on your guests whether a social party, corporate product launch, or a business dinner type.


Take use of the Hudson river and the proximity to water, by planning your event on a charter boat in the beautiful summer weather. Feel far away from home, while only a few miles off the shore from your doorstep. Check out the charter yachts that hornblower cruises has available. Or for fear of sea-sick guests, stay landlocked with the same serenity of being by the water, by throwing your event at a shore location without have to head to the Hamptons. Chose one of the distinct water-side pier venue spots for an unmatched view of the water and the sunset while enjoying indoor and outdoor space. We suggest the Sunset Terrace at Chelsea Piers or Pier Sixty.


Another innovative option for the summer is to host a picnic party. Believe it or not, there is a picnic concierge company out there! Perfect Picnic NYC, is a picnic party planning company that will deliver catered food and even provide a butler to set-up and serve to you, at wherever you can think of in the city! Chose to throw a rejuvenating work party at Central Park Greens, your rooftop garden, or courtyard terrace! Perhaps you would rather hire an event-planner and have them set up a full-service party at an amazing outdoor location such as the Highline or 620 Loft & Garden.


Where is your dream location? If you can dream it, there is an events professional out there that can make it happen! At the Event Planner Expo 2015, on October 7th at the Metropolitan Pavilion, you will be sure to find inspiration on all the best catered food services, concierges, wedding venues, rooftop party venues, decoration and furniture companies, and the small luxuries that all New Yorkers are seeking in their party going adventures. Take full advantage of New York City’s summer weather and get to planning a fabulous end-of-the-summer party.
