Exciting Spouse/Companion Program Highlighted At The New York Produce Show And Conference
Jim Prevor’s Perishable Pundit, October 21, 2010
The New York Produce Show and Conference is a serious, work-related event. A top retail panel, many workshops and seminars, important networking events, informative tours and a sold-out trade show. It will certainly be pleasant, but the attendees are there to work.
Spouses and companions, though, are sometimes free to simply enjoy the City. The New York Produce Show and Conference is helping to facilitate this by offering a wonderful spouse/companion program.
The program has three components:
First, registrants in the Spouse/Companion Program are free to attend any event at The New York Produce Show and Conference. This includes entry to the opening reception, the keynote breakfast, seminars, workshops, cooking demos and the trade show itself. Only the bus tours are additional.
Second, Spouse/Companion registrants receive exclusive use of a suite set aside to be “ground central” for a New York exploration. The suite serves a continental breakfast, refreshing beverages and an assortment of petit fours, tea sandwiches and, of course, fresh fruit and vegetables throughout the day. Manicures, pedicures and chair massages are also available.
Third, participants will enjoy an out-of-hotel experience. Starting out with a morning shopping expedition to experience Manhattan’s most unique retail stores, including a visit to the world renowned Bergdorf Goodman and the flagship store for Tiffany & Co., there will also be an exclusive coach serving the program participants to take the registrants on a whirlwind tour — get on and off as you please or stay with the group — to top museums, historical sites, Chinatown, Little Italy and much more.
The Pundit and Mrs. Pundit both have fond memories of The Plaza — it was where we got married.
So when Mrs. Pundit took up the job of organizing the spouse/companion program for The New York Produce Show and Conference, it is no surprise that she selected High Tea in The Palm Court at The Plaza as a highlight of the day — all complimentary as part of the program.
The New York Produce Show and Conference is a fabulous opportunity to work hard and play hard. If your spouse or companion is able to join you in New York, you may well want to consider this very special program.
