Hosted by the New York Local Board and the New York Host Committee, the eight-year-old event brought together the city’s entertainment and media labor organizations, production studios, broadcasters, recording artists and influencers for an evening of industry networking.
President Gabrielle Carteris, Executive Vice President Rebecca Damon, and New York President Mike Hodge were in attendance and recognized guests from the New York Mayor’s Office, the Department of Labor and the various industry unions. Both Damon and Hodge highlighted exciting New York news, including the extension of the New York film tax incentive and the 2018 Grammys return to New York.
