NYC Television Week Selects Host Venues

Inaugural Celebration of TV Industry Set for Waldorf Astoria, Metropolitan Pavilion from Oct. 28-31

NYC Television Week has named the two venues that will house the networking events, conferences, seminars and exhibits celebrating the TV industry during the last week of October.

Produced by NewBay Media, the publisher of Multichannel News and Broadcasting & Cable, NYC Television Week begins Oct. 28 at the legendary Waldorf Astoria Hotel with a networking breakfast prior to the evening’s B&C Hall of Fame gala. The inaugural NYC Television Week, which will examine the breadth of today's TV industry -- from broadcast to cable, satellite to Internet video and beyond -- then continues at the Metropolitan Pavilion from Oct. 29 through Oct. 31.

“The momentum behind NYC Television Week is building at a fantastic rate,” said Louis Hillelson, vice president/publishing director of Multichannel News and Broadcasting & Cable. “We have received a huge amount of interest from top television thought leaders on participating in the week, and we will be making some significant partner announcements shortly. I am looking forward to treating the industry to a series of essential events at these celebrated locations.”

A landmark luxury hotel, the Waldorf Astoria is located in midtown at Park Avenue. The Art Deco property occupies an entire city block and is within walking distance of museums Fifth Avenue shops, Rockefeller Center, Theater District, Central Park and Times Square.

The Metropolitan Pavilion, located in the historic Chelsea section of Manhattan, has become one of the city’s premier event spaces. Easily accessible via subway and taxi, the Metropolitan Pavilion hosts over 100 high-profile events annually, including CE Week, the Ad Age Digital Conference and Internet Week.
