  • What separates CONNECTIONS NYC from any other type of industry experience is that it gives professionals an opportunity to literally CONNECT with people/reps/agencies that they have worked with in the past or create an introduction for future projects. That type of relationship building is essential in this technological environment where people resort to communicating solely via email, social media or text and sometimes a face to face connection can help decide between getting a commission or not.
