Take advantage of all that New York City has to offer, and enjoy yourself while you’re there. From sightseeing to dining to nightlife, there’s something for everyone in this fantastic city. If you’re staying the whole week, don’t be shy about sleeping in one day or taking a long lunch. Your Inman Connect general pass includes virtual access. Watch virtually if you’re tired or taking business calls in your hotel room.
