Benefits of Corporate Membership

Each year, the New York City Association of Hotel Concierges® (NYCAHC) permits a small group of area vendors to become corporate members of the organization. Corporate membership in NYCAHC offers myriad benefits to businesses operating in and around New York City:

  • Corporate members are invited to nine monthly NYCAHC meetings a year, where they can directly meet and network with concierges. Corporate members are also invited to participate in NYCAHC’s Annual Holiday Party and Charitable Drive and all of the organization’s charitable initiatives. The organization currently has nearly 200 concierge members representing over 24,000 hotel rooms in and around New York City.
  • NYCAHC’s corporate members are permitted to use the NYCAHC logo in their advertising materials, signaling to their customers their strong ties to the concierge community. (Please note that advertising materials using the NYCAHC logo must be submitted to the Board of Directors for review prior to use.)
  • Corporate members’ logos are prominently displayed on the NYCAHC website, with links to their own websites to drive visitor traffic.
  • Corporate members are eligible to participate in the annual NYCAHC Trade Show at a discounted rate. At the annual trade show, vendors are invited to showcase their products and services to the New York Metropolitan tourism industry.

Corporate members play an important role in giving back to the community through NYCAHC’s charitable efforts. Through its sister organization—the NYCAHC Charitable Fund, a Section 501(c)(3) tax-exempt not-for-profit organization—NYCAHC has been able to make substantial contributions to numerous local charities, including the NYC Coalition Against Hunger, Women in Need, the Intrepid Fund, Million Trees NYC, the Parks & Recreation Foundation, Safe Horizon and the Les Clefs d’Or Foundation.

Annual Trade Show

NYCAHC hosts an annual Trade Show to bring together all the important decision makers in the hospitality industry and the best vendors in the New York City area under one roof. The NYCAHC Trade Show is a welcoming, informative event designed to allow members of the business community who cater to hotel guests to network with concierge professionals, sales and marketing teams and hotel managers.

The NYCAHC Trade Show was developed as a way to help the concierge community identify the best, most trusted vendors in the tri-State area. This spectacular event, which includes a vendors’ exhibition area, serves as the perfect opportunity for businesses to interact with top hotel sales and marketing managers, as well as connect with the concierge community face-to-face. When vendors visit concierge desks, the demands of hotel guests often make concierges unable to devote their full attention to learning about the vendor and its services. The NYCAHC Trade Show, on the other hand, allows ample time for concierges and hotel industry professionals to gain insight on vendors’ products and services in a relaxed atmosphere without distraction.

The NYCAHC Trade Show continues to be a wonderful opportunity for the concierges and hotel industry professionals to learn and establish new business relationships and opportunities.

The evening also includes the presentation of a Lifetime Achievement Award to an individual or organization that has supported the efforts of the tourism and hospitality industries.

The elite guest list at this invitation-only event is a “who’s who” of New York’s hotel and travel community. The event plays host to more than 500 VIPs, including general managers, concierges, directors of sales and marketing, directors of food and beverage, event sponsors, political dignitaries and media. Throughout the evening, a silent auction is conducted to benefit the Les Clefs d’Or Foundation, the NYCAHC Charitable Fund, the Hotel Association of New York City, Inc. Scholarship Fund, and Big Apple Greeter.
