On Nov. 7, the evening of the first day of Customer Engagement Technology World (CETW) in New York City, the DSA Party @ CETW NYC will be held aboard the Duchess Yacht from 5-9 p.m.
During the event, the Association will announce the winners of the DSA Crown Awards in a special presentation. Following the awards, attendees will enjoy a buffet dinner, drinks, networking and sightseeing.
The Duchess, one of four ships owned by World Yacht of Pier 81, is a 160-foot long vessel with three decks that can accommodate up to 500 people. The panoramic windows will provide great views of the New York City skyline at night.
World Yacht sails down the Hudson, around the tip of Manhattan, up the East River, under the world-famous Brooklyn Bridge and far enough north for guests to catch a glimpse of the pristine architecture of the United Nations. The ship then turns around and sets sail for the Statue of Liberty, continuing back up the Hudson to its Pier 81 dock. Other well-known landmarks visible along the cruise include the World Financial Center and the shimmering art deco spires of the Empire State and Chrysler Building.
Pier 81 is a short walk from the Javits Center, the site of CETW. Chartered buses will also be available to transport attendees. The ship will set sail at 6 pm and return at 8:30 pm.
