Penn Plaza Pavilion

With Madison Square Garden and Penn Station right across the street, the Penn Plaza Pavilion is the perfect venue for this year's conference. We’ll be close to the action with the bustling activity of midtown Manhattan below, and easily accessible to all major subway lines and one of the city’s major taxi hubs on 7th Avenue.
