Bringing Back Live Events
Last September, I found myself in a classic dilemma for recent college grads. I had just moved to New York City and had few social connections. My social skills had gotten a little rusty from nearly two years of Zoom and FaceTime, so I decided to break the ice with a good old fashioned house party. One problem…my (generously) 400 square foot studio apartment was a less than ideal venue. I enlisted the help of a friend and neighbor with a rooftop on his building.
We invited neighbors, work colleges, and a handful of people we ran into over the days beforehand. We reserved his rooftop on a friday night, bought drinks and ice from the local liquor store, and even hired a local DJ. By the end of the night I was reminded of the joy of learning about new people and their backgrounds that I had missed during the pandemic. My friend and I had so much fun in fact that we decided that night to start our events company Nomad’s Place.
Over the next month we started a series of rooftop parties and socials migrating to different locations around Manhattan, until the winter weather in New York forced us to come up with a new idea. Rather than focus on only one type of event, we wanted to introduce people to a wide array of experiences covering everything from music and nightlife to culinary and professional events.
The months that followed included some unforgettable experiences for us. In February we partnered with one of the leading showrunners of New York Fashion Week to produce the afterparty for opening night. By the spring, we took the show on the road to produce events in LA, Miami, and Philadelphia. Some of our personal favorites included our events for LA Fashion Week and a yacht concert featuring members of BachelorNation circling Manhattan.
Our vision at Nomad’s Place is ultimately to connect people face-to-face and bring the vision of artists, creators, and brands to life. Whether we are creating our own concept or working on behalf of a client, our goal is to create the sense of excitement and connection that we all dearly missed over the past couple of years.
