Our 2016-2017 Celebrate! Party Showcase season runs from October, 2016 – March, 2017
We just added a NYC showcase on Sunday, February 12, 2017 at the Hilton Midtown. Each of the seven annual Celebrate! Party Showcases attract hundreds of families who are all looking to meet Bar Bat Mitzvah vendors. All showcases are held from 12 noon – 4:00pm.
These showcases are especially effective for exhibitors who have something special and different to present to families who are looking for the newest, hottest and greatest for their child’s celebration.
These Bar Bat Mitzvah families get to spend an afternoon meeting face-to-face with Bar Bat Mitzvah experts who can make their child’s celebration different from the rest. Some vendors sign business right at the event.
It’s fun to sample the food, try out the newest entertainment and learn what’s unique in Bar Bat Mitzvah planning.
** We distribute our annual Mitzvah Market Magazine at these events. Editions are also distributed throughout New York City, Northern/Central New Jersey and Westchester/Rockland/Fairfield.
