    Announcing NYEBN's 1st networking event in February. We are going to La Pomme, a high-end networking venue located in the heart of Chelsea. The venue is exclusively set up for our event from 6-10 PM. I've been there twice and the space looks perfect for our networking purposes. We have some big announcements to make at this event. Please read carefully. 1. Award Ceremony (6:30 - 6:45 PM) The award ceremony lasts for 15 minutes. We will do this in a fast and efficient way. The purpose is to reward the winners for the January affiliate program. If you are new and not familiar with the NYEBN affiliate program, read it here. 2. Theme Business oriented. Formal business attire required. RSVP is a must to make it a free event. For people not on the RSVP list, a charge of $10 will apply at the door. As a member, your one guest (+1) can come for free. 3. Name Tags The old rule still holds. We will continue to mandate high quality name tags at our networking events. If you don't already have a plastic name tag holder, you will need to purchase one when you check in for $1 each. As you can see from the 230 Fifth pictures, the plastic name tags do look better on everybody. 4. Drink Specials/Snacks $6 wine/beer/sangria; $8 whiskey sour/mimosa; Light bar snacks are provided on a complimentary basis. 5. Others You must be 21 or older to attend this event. Make sure you bring your ID with you. If you do not want to wait in the line, print out the reminder email (with YES RSVP) or your own RSVP page (a sample) so you can get in immediately. Just like you, we don't want to see you waitng in long lines. 6. Vendors (sold out) No spots left. Please contact Sue Risdal at Susan at WebStudio13 dot com to request a table for future events.

Venue La pomme, or ‘the apple’ in French, is the proverbial forbidden fruit: pure and simple, but with an underlying element of sensuality and taboo. Located at 37 West 26th Street in the heart of Chelsea, La Pomme event space brings the diverse contextual meanings of its name to life in a space that is at once streamlined and subversive, wide-eyed but wicked. This 3,500 square foot venue combines high-style design and grand décor with ‘Fellini-esque” elements of debaucherous mystery to create an imaginative and raucous metropolitan escape. Note: La Pomme has held networking events for Yahoo and iVillage before. Plus, the light can be turned all the way up inside the venue.

    Raphael, it is our policy to welcome all -- even those who have not been able to RSVP in time. Please look for or ask for me when you come in; I am in charge of collecting the $10 from those not on the list.

    We have exciting new vendors and a great venue. This should turn out to be one of our best events to date.

    It's good to get in the habit of making comments and tagging your photos to identify who you are. Why do that? Have you googled your name lately? You will notice that your activities through NYEBN get posted on google, thus creating and increasing exposure to yourself. This is free advertising.

    LaPomme was small for this group, although our group is so comfortable with each other and so welcoming to new members, the close quarters didn't matter.

    It was one of the best networking events I've ever attended. It was obvious that the organizers know how to run successful events.

    It had an interesting mixture of career professional, from Attorneys to IT Professionals. It certainly was worth the effort, and made some interesting connections - also well run

  • Tim Davis

    Andrew Wong has become an incredible Connector. His events are well run, well attended and well worth attending. Last night, I overcame feeling of just wanting to go home, but instead went the NYEBN Entrepreneur Networking Event at La Pomme NYC and met 7 new leads for my Sales Coaching.

  • Pearl +1

    This was my first networking event and I must say It was terrific. I met alot of friendly and influential people, I am really excited and can't wait to meet more business mavens. Good job Andrew and the rest of the organizers for putting together such a stellar event.
