2015 Update

The YPNYE team would like to announce that the event is taking a hiatus for 2015 due to a variety of factors. We are re-evaluating the event to ensure that it offers the best possible experience for attendees. We thank all of you who have attended prior years’ events and provided feedback. We hope to be back with the best YPNYE ever in 2016!

Last Chance for Hotel Packages!

Our hotel packages, which include tickets to the event, are only available through December 28th. After that, we cannot guarantee that you will be able to get a room at the Hilton. With a low of 13 degrees on Wednesday, it’s going to be a chilly one! Reserve your hotel room so you don’t have to worry about going out into the cold after the party. Visit the YPNYE Hilton reservations page to reserve your warm and cozy room. It even includes breakfast the next morning!
