For the second year in a row Sands New York was the Title Sponsor for the HIA-LI Annual Business-to-Business Trade Show and Conference, underscoring its continued commitment to fostering local business growth and economic development.

The 2024 trade show featured two Sands New York procurement information sessions designed to connect local businesses with Sands executives. This initiative aims to integrate local suppliers into Sands’ procurement process, opening doors to new business opportunities and fostering community engagement. In addition to the info sessions, Tracey Edwards gave opening remarks at the event celebrating the partnership between local business organizations and advocates and Sands New York.

Edwards said, “As this transformational project progresses, we recognize the diverse needs it entails, spanning construction and pre-construction support, technology, professional services, and food and beverage provisions. Long Island businesses must be first in line and fully equipped to seize these opportunities.”

This year marked the 36th year for the annual event, the largest of its kind on Long Island. It brought in over 4,000 attendees, including 78% decision-makers, alongside 300 exhibitors representing a broad spectrum of industries. The event serves as a critical platform for networking, knowledge sharing, and collaboration among the region’s business community.
