September 2016

15 Years ago, the Greater NY Chamber hosted its first business fair to help rebuild and revitalize business & community after the horrific 9/11 attacks. It was a great success and we continue to host this expo which attracts hundreds of members and agencies. This year we honored those who have helped to "Keep NYC Safe and Open for Business", including new NYPD Commissioner James O'Neill, United War Veterans President Dan McSweeney and Captain Michael Day of the US Coast Guard. The expo was sponsored by; HotHead Tech, Christie Experiential, Emerge 212 Office Space, BenExchange, Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses, Visit Rochester, Arrow Transfer & Storage, AzLight, Select OfficeSuites, DataVoke, Enqwest, Sprint, New York RX Card, Pitta Giblon & Baione 1010 Wins & WCBS Newsradio 880. In addition to NY's best Networking event, the expo featured seminars on Helpful Government Initiatives & resources , Legal & Accounting Strategies and Benefits for 9/11 Survivors and Small Businesses. Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer attended the Fair and remarked that the seminars were excellent and a great help to New Yorkers who want to educate themselves where available. Governor Andrew Cuomo has remarked that the annual event "continues to provide venues for the exchange of ideas and information."
