In winter 2014, NY NOW® (Feb 1-5, 2014) and Super Bowl XLVIII (Feb 2, 2014 in East Rutherford, NJ) will take place during the same week. While this overlap will make it an even more exciting time to be in New York City, it also has led to some questions about travel and hotel availability during the show.
Dates for NY NOW are booked many years in advance. When the 2014 Super Bowl dates were announced, we immediately secured sufficient hotel inventory for our customers (exhibitors and attendees). New York City has more than 90,000 hotel rooms and despite the addition of the Super Bowl, we are assured by the City of New York and our hotel company that there is more than enough capacity to accommodate all visitors.
The Winter 2014 NY NOW hotel block will open by early summer 2013 to give customers advanced access to hotel reservations. And while rates may be higher than usual over the weekend, they will be considerably lower than what an independent search will currently yield.
We have also researched other areas of capacity and confirmed that the city can easily handle the additional traffic in terms of flights, restaurants and general crowds.
Additional plans are being developed, and further details will be shared over the summer. In the meantime, if you’d like to be notified when the hotel block opens, you can fill out a brief form here. ***Please enter NYNOW2014 in the Event Name field.***
