BuildingEnergy NYC 2024 Sponsor and Exhibitor FAQ

General Information for All Sponsors (Including Exhibitors)

When and where is the conference?

BuildingEnergy NYC 2024 will take place on October 24 at Convene 237 Park Avenue. The venue is in Midtown East, just a couple of blocks from Grand Central. The main entrance is on Lexington Avenue and the venue is just up the escalators on the second floor. All attendees will need to show a photo ID to access the venue.

Where can I stay?

We do not have a block of rooms reserved, but there are many hotel options in the area.

What about food?

Breakfast, lunch, and refreshments are available throughout the day on the trade show floor.

How many staff can I bring and how do I get them registered?

Each sponsorship level includes a set number of complimentary conference passes for sponsor staff, including those staffing exhibit tables. We will reach out by email to request the names of complimentary pass recipients, and then register them for you. If you need additional passes for other staff, clients, or prospects, you will need to purchase them.

Will I receive a list of attendees?

Yes, you will receive a copy of the attendee list after the conference, which you may use for a one-time e-mail campaign. We do not provide a list of registrants in advance, but you will be able to view and search who is registered to attend on the Who's Attending page.

Can I speak at the conference?

A limited number of sponsored speaking slots are available, based on sponsorship level. If you have questions, please contact bsachs-hamilton@nesea.org. Accredited sessions are chosen through a peer review process that begins in the early spring. If you are interested in submitting a session proposal for next year's conference, make sure you are on the NESEA mailing list.

Can sponsors and exhibitors attend the conference sessions?

Yes! All conference attendees are encouraged to attend sessions.

How can I promote the event?

Your help in packing the house is greatly appreciated. We will be publishing a Media Kit with marketing language and images for promotional use.
