- Attracting major sports events to New York City, including the 2016 NCAA Wrestling Championships, the 2016 and 2017 NCAA Men’s Basketball Championships, the Brooklyn Rock ‘n’ Roll Half-Marathon and this summer’s WWE SummerSlam.

Tourism-Ready seminars hosted in every borough to help tourism-related businesses and attractions increase visitation and expand their economic benefits locally

- Strategic seasonal and brand campaigns to promote New York City to the world, including the new NYCGO Insider Guides highlighting travel to diverse and vibrant neighborhoods throughout all five boroughs

- New “Free in NYC” messaging at nycgo.com/free to highlight free and low-cost activities, especially for the upcoming summer travel season, providing more reasons to visit and experience the five boroughs. Free museums and attractions; TV show tapings; free for kids; free Tours; and parks and gardens are all featured content on the new site.
