Famous for hosting hundreds of listing celebrations each year, the NYSE also welcomes world leaders, industry groups, nonprofit organizations and notable personalities in business, sports, entertainment and culture to attend events or to ring the Opening or Closing Bell.
The crackling energy of a listing day celebration is unmatched, as hundreds of excited employees arrive in the heart of the Financial District to watch as their company trades publicly for the first time. Once listed, our companies return to use our space for investor days, board meetings, product launches and more. The NYSE also works with organizations to produce strategic programming to benefit our community of listed companies and companies that are considering a public listing.
The space serves as the foundation for the NYSE’s goal to connect people to opportunity, through education, collaboration with our community, and support for the values that guide us.
