Social networking events will include a Welcome Reception following the opening session on Sunday evening, June 30, 2019 in the Morgan Ballroom.

Due to the increased number of participants, we have outgrown the Rooftop Terrace for the reception, but it is reserved for KSHV participants following the reception on Sunday evening on an informal basis!

The final night networking dinner will be held on Tuesday evening, July 2nd with a private dinner cruise on the World Yacht’s Duchess. docked at Pier 81 at 12th Ave & W 41st St.

Participants are on their own getting to the Pier. We suggest the following options:

  • Walking: 1.9 miles/3 km, a 45 minute walk from the East Side of Manhattan to the Pier, (see map below). This walk takes you through Rockefeller Center & Times Square.
  • Direct bus: There is a direct bus (M50 to WEST SIDE 42 ST PIER CROSSTOWN) from the hotel to the Pier (please make sure you have an MTA MetroCard obtained from a subway station before boarding). The bus stop is at E. 49th Street/Lexington Ave. (at the corner by New York Marriott East Side). Get off at 12 Av/W 42st. (about 30 minutes on the bus) and walk 1 block to 41st.
  • Subway: E or 7 lines to 42nd St, then a 20 minute walk or transfer to the M42 bus (you can use the same MetroCard for a free transfer).
  • Uber or a Taxi.
