There is no better way to ring in the New Year than witnessing this bucket list event!

If you have always wanted to be in Times Square when the famous ball drops - but didn’t want to stand for hours in the crowded street - plan to ring in 2020 with NYCVP’s biggest bash of them all – the New Year’s Eve Times Square Ball Drop Gala above the crowds! You’ll be twenty-three stories up with views of not only the Times Square Ball - but also the fireworks display over Central Park after the ball drops. Oh, and don’t forget the open bar, hors d'oeuvres, buffet stations, desserts and DJ dance music. The best part? Unlike those standing in the street below you will be indoors - not worried about the weather and with full access to restrooms. This event is truly a bucket list item!

New Year's Eve Times Square Ball Drop Gala
New Year’s Eve Times Square Ball Drop Gala

See the ball drop New Year Eve’s at NYCVP's Ball Grop Gala, featuring an outstanding direct view of the ball drop.

As New Year's Eve Times Square revelers stand in the cold, shoulder to shoulder from 42nd Street all the way up to Central Park, you'll be overlooking them at an exclusive party right in the middle of it all—high above with a view of the city lights, the celebration and of course, the Times Square Ball Drop!

Towering 23 stories above the million or so partiers on 7th Avenue and Broadway below, enjoy an open bar, hors d'oeuvres, buffet stations and desserts, DJ dance music and the view to end all views! At midnight, the ball drop, fireworks and confetti will create the perfect backdrop scenery for welcoming in the New Year in Times Square.

"Excellent night. More than what we had expected. Great venue and event which includes everything you need to ring in the New Year including a view of the ball drop. The food was amazing and the location was equisite. a fantastic night, well worth every penny." -Melissa, Windsor, Australia

About Convene Conference Center (Formerly the Sentry Center):
Convene is a conference facility occupying the entire 22nd and 23rd floors of 810 7th Avenue in the heart of the Times Square Theatre District. Convene’s windows wrap on all 4 sides, providing magnificent views of New Year's Eve in Times Square, up and down both Broadway and 7th Avenue. The facility is totally non-smoking.
The New Year’s Eve Gala will be on the 22nd & 23rd floors. DJ music will be provided on only one level.

Convene is located at 810 7th Avenue, between 52nd and 53rd Streets, directly across 7th Avenue from the Sheraton New York Hotel and 10 short blocks from the Ball Drop. Since the facility is located within the Times Square Security Check-Point area, you will be provided with documentation and instructions on how to enter the Times Square area and Convene.

Although there is no dress code for this event, we do suggest you “dress to impress.”

Minimum Age:
There is no minimum age for guests at this event; however New York State laws forbid the consumption of alcohol by anyone under the age of 21.

Important Information for INSIDER'S Functions:
This exclusive event has limited availability. NYCVP cannot guarantee unobstructed views of the Ball Drop; views are "first-come, first-served". In order to provide maximum viewing space there is no table seating at the windows. It is the intention of NYCVP to provide a convivial atmosphere during this special event, including food, drinks, private restroom facilities, warmth and indoor protection from the weather, and admission into the Times Square area. Since streets are closed to traffic and pedestrian movement is limited by the NYPD, NYCVP will provide instructions for admission.

Convene Conference Center is a secure facility. Picture ID is required for admittance to the event. Guests who don’t provide picture ID, or who don’t possess the proper documents issued by NYCVP and/or its affiliates, will be refused admittance. There will be no refunds in such cases.

NYCVP will issue NYPD (New York City Police Department) approved credentials for access into the Times Square Lock-Down Zone. However it is your responsibility to adhere to any and all regulations and restrictions issued by the NYPD.

NYCVP, including its employees and agents, reserves the right to deny access to and/or remove with no refund individuals whom NYCVP deems unruly or disruptive.
