The Queens Economic Development Corporation, the Queens Tourism Council, and lead sponsor Fairway Market are proud to announce that the borough's premiere food-and-networking event, Queens Taste 2014, will take place at the Sheraton LaGuardia East Hotel, 135-20 39th Avenue in Flushing, from 6:00 P.M. till 9:00 P.M. on Tuesday, 29 April.
The reasons to attend are as diverse as the borough itself. Foodies can expect to feast on everything from sweet to savory; Mexican to mainstream; and crunchy to creamy (including artisanal specialties prepared by Entrepreneur Space clients). And, of course, there will be various libations to fortify the spirit of the event.
As part of the fun, clowns from the Big Apple Circus will perform magic tricks and distribute free red clown noses to all attendees (or at least to those who want one). In addition, QEDC and the Queens Historical Society will host a table exhibiting memorabilia from the 1939 and 1964 World's Fairs—both of which took place in Flushing Meadows Corona Park.
Finally, this event affords a perfect venue for networking. QEDC hopes to attract some 1,000 attendees, with most either residing in Queens or doing business in the borough. Thus, Queens Taste 2014 provides a convivial setting in which to meet like-minded individuals, talk shop, and exchange business cards.
Queens Taste 2014 costs $100 for an individual ticket, or $175 for two. Proceeds support QEDC's ongoing efforts to attract and maintain jobs in the borough through business services, neighborhood development, the E-Space, and marketing attractions through QTC and the Discover Queens brand. As QEDC is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit, proceeds are tax deductible as permitted by law.
