Tourism Is Back – Great Night for the Industry by City Guide

PC: Frank Rocco

André De Shields Highlights “NYC Tourism Is Back” Gathering Ahead of Broadway’s Return

The city’s tourism industry came together Monday night for the “NYC Tourism Is Back, Start Spreading Your News” cocktail reception. City Guide and One World Observatory hosted more than 300 guests, following the latest safety protocols. The evening’s special guest was André De Shields, the Tony- and Grammy-winning actor who is just ahead of his return tomorrow to Broadway in Hadestown. De Shields serenaded the crowd while amplifying the room’s excitement about the return of Broadway and the broader return of tourism and NYC life.

David Miller, Davler Media CEO, said “It was gratifying seeing so many colleagues in person after too many months of being apart. New Yorkers know the city works best when we all come together. Our tourism community is strong and our city is resilient. The electric atmosphere last night really confirms it.”

Beneficiaries of the evening were The Actors Fund, the New York City Association of Hotel Concierges Charitable Fund, and the Hotel Association of NYC Foundation.

Feedback from guests consistently referred to the professionalism and hospitality of the One World Observatory staff. The setting was spectacular, with a dramatic sunset over the Hudson. In a fitting moment, guests got to see the lights of the city flicker back to life. The perspective, from the top of the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere, provided a perfect context for the beginning of the return of New York City as the number one tourist destination in the nation.

To see your friends on Monday night, check out our video slide show. We’ve also got the photos posted to an album on the NYC Tourism Industry Professionals (NYC TIP)—if you’re not a member yet, now’s a great opportunity to join.

We’d also like to give special thanks to our sponsors, who not only made the event possible, but also provided the opportunity to support three charities.

It was amazing to see all of you in person. We are looking forward to rolling up our sleeves and getting down to work—NYC TOURISM IS BACK!

We reveal the new Inside The City to mark in your diaries for August.


Every month, as part of the We Love New York club, Inside the City lets you immerse yourself in the daily lives of New Yorkers for five days, with real-life anecdotes about local life. Despite the hustle and bustle of the city, the Insider takes the time to generously share his daily life and the subjects that touch him and fascinate him in New York City. All in a variety of formats: text, video and photos.

Each Inside The City ends in the club with a live, interactive exchange, providing an opportunity to reflect on the week shared. So you can take advantage of this live event to get to know your Insider better, and find out what makes him or her tick in New York. Quite an opportunity to connect with a local before your trip! 🙂

This time, it’s Martine Dominique who’s taking us with her to New York from August 9. A resident of New York for some thirty years, you’ll be able to follow her adventures for a week Live from New York.
