Shackman Associates New York is seeing a new trend in rooftop venues that provides an opening for meeting planners to book Sunday opening receptions without reinventing the wheel.
One rooftop venue is taking a very unique approach: it is booking weddings during on weeknights and opening up its schedule for other "private events" on weekends. Weeknight weddings are exploding in popularity because of the exponentially increased cost of getting married. This is putting less financial pressure on venues to book weddings on Saturday and Sunday.
We have previously blogged that opening a corporate, association or incentive meeting on a Sunday in Manhattan is a great way to save costs. It's becoming easier than ever in New York City.
