New York Event Trend
Mansions & Museums
An event trend that we have been noticing lately is events in Mansions & Museums. Guests are taking their events to a whole new extreme- and Event Kings is a BIG FAN.
New York City and Long Island are filled with Museums. Museums usually have large almost-bare rooms in which you, or better yet US, can transform the room into an Event Space. (Check out one of our previous blogs on Event Transformation- Event Kings Blog- Event Transformation)
The absolute BEST part of having your event at a Museum is you can usually ask or pay for some exhibits to be open. We did this in Chicago for a Corporate Conference last year. (Check out a blog all about that event- Event Kings Blog- Destination Conferences) The guests love this, especially if the museum has a hands-on exhibit.

Long Island's Gold Coast is filled with Mansions from the era of the Great Gatsby- all built around 1910s to 1920s. Whether public or private, many of these Mansions open their doors for Events.
Having your event at a mansion instead of a Catering Hall adds an element of History. Knowing that people once lived in these beautiful mansions, and seeing all the beautiful antiques gives the Event a different feeling.
Another plus to having your event at a mansion is you are not locked into a specific caterer. Although most suggest caterers and vendors to use, the final choice of who you use is completely up to you.
