NYC Urban Sketchers


International Urban Sketchers Symposium  

After enjoying many outings drawing around town with the NYC Urban Sketchers, the president of the group enlisted my help to submit a bid to host the umbrella organization's upcoming International Symposium. Every year, a different city plays host to this artistic wonderland, which consists of 4 days of drawing classes, networking, and socializing with like-minded people from all around the world. In 10 years, this event has grown from 28 participants to over 800--with registration selling out in minutes. We positioned NYC a quaint, accessible place for all by making Greenwich Village our hub, rather than Midtown Manhattan. Basically, this was a new business pitch for one of my favorite products: NYC.

We also created a little something extra for the judging committee, in case there were still doubts about where to hold the symposium. You can watch it here.
