NYC is one of the most active and exciting event destinations on the planet. The New York event scene is advanced, experimental, and diverse, with more opportunities and resources for creating groundbreaking business and marketing events than anywhere else.
It’s a playground for seasoned event planners who know both the pitfalls of organizing large events and small-scale, exclusive happenings. At Bus.com, we’re experts in both ends of the spectrum.

A school bus is a classic, functional, and economical vehicle that is perfect for shorter distance trips and shuttle services. The bus is highly visible and easy to identify when parked and carries up to 47 passengers at once. Depending on the event's concept, it can add a nostalgic vibe to the experience.
A coach bus is an excellent choice if the trip is expected to be longer, the guests intend to work during the trip, or carry a lot of luggage. A coach bus is equipped with an array of extra features to ensure a luxuriously comfortable and restful journey. A coach bus typically has an A/C, power outlets, ample storage area, and reclining seats.
Mini coach and minibus are a compact variety of larger buses, similar in their features. They carry up to 31 passengers, fill up faster when serving as a shuttle, and work well as a vehicle to transport the event staff across the city.
Sustainable, or “green” event management focuses on achieving the event goals without compromising environmental and social responsibility. All choices during the event planning, organization, and implementation are made based on sustainability principles. The suppliers and vendors selected are expected to follow green practices. Venues can be powered by renewable energy, the catering can use local produce, and the waste can be reduced.
Transportation to and from the event is essential for its success, but a fleet of private cars contributes to city pollution and adds to the greenhouse gases. A bus is a more sustainable option: it is a large vehicle, but it allows to replace at least 20-25 individual cars. A Bus.com bus charter cuts the event’s carbon footprint at least in half.
Every experience invented can be found in New York City, and if it has not been created yet, chances are it will premiere here. NYC also strives to keep even the most luxurious and expensive entertainment options available to everyone with the concept of weeks of accessible pricing.
NYC is known as a foodie heaven with traditional meals honed to perfection and novel mashup dishes being invented on its streets. Unsurprisingly, the semiannual NYC Restaurant Week is one of the city’s signature events. During the week, participating restaurants reduced prices, providing everyone with an opportunity to try their top dishes. It is an excellent opportunity to try the most exotic cuisines or famous chefs’ cooking.
New York City Broadway Week is a similar bi-annual event focused on New York’s theater scene offering Broadway tickets for lower prices since 2011. It is celebrated in New York in winter and summer.
The Tribeca Film Festival (TFF) was established in 2002 by Jane Rosenthal, Robert De Niro, and Craig Hatkoff. It became a notable event for independent and innovative filmmakers. They get a chance to present their artwork alongside major world premiers and be seen by both public and expert panels. The array of films is not limited to any specific genre and includes blockbusters, documentaries, VR and multimedia, and short amateur films. Every year, celebrities and producers join the festival to host lectures and masterclasses as well as meet new talent.
New York City Fashion Week is held in February and September each year following the same concept as Paris, Milan, and London Fashion Weeks. During the NYC Fashion Week, international fashion artists present their recent works to buyers, the media, and the broad audience. The NYC FW is known for bold, fresh, and innovative take on design and a creative blend of diverse cultural influences.
New York City Pride March is an event celebrating the human diversity and freedom of identity, and the LGBTQ community in particular. NYC Pride March and accompanying activities are one of the largest Pride celebrations in the world.

Nathan’s Famous Fourth of July Hot Dog Eating Contest is an American hot dog eating competition held every year on Independence Day at Nathan’s Famous Corporation’s original, a restaurant in New York City. The contest is so famous that it was featured in over a dozen TV shows and programs. The person who eats the most Nathan’s Famous grilled hot dogs in buns in ten minutes is pronounced the year’s champion. Yellow penalty cards are issued for “messy eating,” and disqualification follows the “reversal of fortune.” The ties are resolved by eating five hot dogs in a row.
