Biennial General Meeting 2018 – New York City

Plans for the AFVBM General Meeting in New York City (March 14-18, 2018) are moving ahead, with arrangements being made for events in the Lincoln Center area.

There will be a welcome reception for members and guests on Wednesday evening, March 14, at the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, a beautiful venue right on the Lincoln Center Plaza. Our venue for the lectures, demonstrations, and an enhanced Vendor’s exhibit will be the spacious and new Costantino Rooms A, B, and C of the Fordham University Law School, located just steps away from Lincoln Center Plaza. Our program of presentations is now complete; it promises to be varied, interesting and informative, and will include subjects related to New Making, Restoration, Expertise, and Outreach. We will release more information within the next few weeks and details will be posted on our website.

We have contracted a block of rooms at the iconic Empire Hotel just across the street from Lincoln Center. The discounted rate has been locked in at $189 for the Standard Queen room and $209 for the Superior Double-Double rooms. You can call in your reservation at 855-265-7400.  Please reference the American Federation of Violin and Bow Makers to receive the group discounted rates. These are valid until February 14, 2018. All reservations have a 48 hour cancellation policy. Late cancellations and No Shows will be charged by the hotel for one night’s accommodation.
