CYBERWEEK 2019 DETAILS
With over 60 events, you will be sure to find something valuable at the CyberWeek 2019. This year’s event is scheduled for September 16–20 and will take place across various locations all over the New York City area, including Jersey City. Organizers estimate that attendance will be great, with more than 6,500 attendees and 150 Fortune 500 companies represented. It’s the premier event to learn, collaborate, and network with smart, influential people in the sphere of cybersecurity.
You can sign up to attend as an individual or as a team with your colleagues. The complimentary pass will enable you to attend a variety of educational events, parties, and workshops designed to inform and inspire. Industry leaders are also encouraged to register their own event to host.
You are going to need a comfortable place to recharge after your day of learning and connecting at CyberWeek. One “hack” for attending the conference is to check out hotels in Jersey City, which provide the perfect balance of convenient access to the events of the conference and a respite from the hustle and bustle of the city.
The Hyatt House Jersey City delivers modern guest rooms with dedicated workspaces ideal for catching up on the day’s events. The free breakfast will provide the fuel needed to power through the day. The onsite Terrace Lounge or RoofTop at Exchange Place provides sweeping views of the New York City skyline as you wind down from your day at CyberWeek.
Candlewood Suites Jersey City – Harborside Extended Stay Hotel is another good choice. Since the event runs over the course of a week, and you may want some buffer days, an extended stay hotel can be a good choice. This hotel is used to accommodating larger groups, as well, making it a good option if you’re traveling with your team.
SEE THE CITY
The city that never sleeps is the perfect backdrop for the CyberWeek event. While in the city, be sure to visit one of the many museums that call the area home. Art aficionados will delight in the vast collection at the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art, located in Central Park on the Upper East Side. No trip to Manhattan is complete without taking in a Broadway show. Get your colleagues together for a classic New York evening of fun with dinner and a show.
You would be remiss to visit the New York City area and not go out of your way to sample some of the area’s best cuisine. Be sure to start your culinary adventure with a piece of New York-style pizza. You can find a slice on nearly every corner of Manhattan. There is a myriad of world-class restaurants right at your doorstep in Manhattan, Jersey City, and the surrounding areas.
While in Manhattan, be sure to indulge in a luxurious meal at one of the city’s premier steakhouses. Good choices include Gallaghers Steak House in Midtown or Peter Luger in Brooklyn.
If you’re dining in Jersey City, be sure to check out the stunning view of the Manhattan skyline at the Liberty House.
