Dress for the INMA World Congress is business casual except the Friday evening Global Media Awards Dinner which is business attire (black-tie optional).
There are currently no COVID-19 restrictions for traveling to the United States or New York. There are no mandates about masks or showing proof of vaccination in the country, state, or city nor with The TimesCenter. However, study tour participants will likely need to show proof of vaccination at some stops. INMA encourages attendees to bring masks and proof of vaccination and up-to-date booster status – erring on the side of caution. INMA will provide a safe environment and follow the science as recommended by local authorities.

Because of the large numbers of hotels near The TimesCenter and the wide range of prices (and attendee budgets), there is no official INMA hotel for the New York World Congress. INMA has researched hotels in the immediate vicinity and put together a list of recommended hotels, which you can access by clicking here. Recommended hotels range in price from as low as US$150 and as high as US$600 – with a median of about US$350.
The World Congress venue for Thursday and Friday sessions is The TimesCenter, located at 242 West 41st Street in New York. Depending on the location of your hotel you may walk, taxi/Uber, or use public transportation..
Springtime in New York is the best time to be in the city. Look for morning lows in the 51°F-60°F (11°C -16°C) range and afternoon highs in the 67°F -75°F (19°C-24°C) range. View the real-time New York forecast.

Share your business trip to New York with a spouse or guest by registering them for the Welcome Reception and the Global Media Awards Dinner. Tickets may be purchased online. Due to limited space only full Congress attendees can attend workshops.
If you are traveling from outside of the United States, you will require a passport for travel to New York. Whether you also will require a visa depends on your country of residence.
