While there has been lots of controversy over the painting of graffiti at 5POINTZ, the art's popularity at corporate meetings is booming. And that is leading to bigger venues appearing throughout New York City that can accommodate demand.
If you think graffiti as a team-building activity sounds familiar coming from us, you are right. Shackman Associates New York blogged about this trend 2 years ago when it was more of a "pop-up" idea in selected hotel ballrooms. Meeting planners can now rent out entire warehouses.
And not surprisingly, Brooklyn is at the heart of this industry. Meetings can now combine graffiti with an after-party at Brooklyn's many hot restaurants or a winery-brewery event.
