Thank You for Your Interest

The Coalition for NYC Hospitality & Tourism Recovery is an initiative of NYC & Company, the official destination marketing organization and convention and visitors bureau for the five boroughs of New York City. We advocate for, convene and champion New York City’s tourism and hospitality organizations.

On this page, please find some frequently asked questions and answers about our Coalition. For more information, reach out by clicking the button below.

When will the recovery begin?

Planning for the recovery has already begun. Informed by public health expertise, New York City’s reopening will move in tandem with directives from the Mayor as well as Governor Cuomo’s New York Forward plan. NY Pause is still in effect for the five boroughs through May 28. Once the five boroughs meet New York State’s seven criteria, local businesses will be permitted to reopen in phases. Through our work as part of Mayor de Blasio’s Arts, Culture and Tourism Sector Advisory Council, we are helping inform local decision making. For more on these phases, please see the explanation here.

How can my organization be involved?

We welcome all businesses to sign onto the Coalition as a show of support. As we launch initiatives, we will ask participants for help in amplifying our campaigns across your channels, including digital and social, plus others you may have as appropriate. Although the Coalition will not be fundraising per se, we are seeking corporate partners and sponsors to assist in presenting our programs. Additionally, if your organization has media available to be donated for use in tourism recovery, please let us know.

Can my organization help shape the work of the Coalition?

Yes. As always, we welcome your feedback—it is critical to our strategies moving forward. Alignment across all business sectors of tourism and hospitality will be paramount in presenting a united front and safely rebuilding the public’s confidence and, ultimately, visitation. We will keep you informed on all developments as the recovery work begins in earnest, and we encourage you to reach out with your ideas so that we may incorporate them into our discussions.
