As the planners of conventions and group meetings of various sizes seek out ways to elevate and enrich the experiences of attendees, Macy’s stands ready to help with offerings that provide fun, entertainment and savings.

Macy’s provides a variety of services tailored to the needs of convention and meeting planners in any locale where there is a Macy’s store—from special store discounts for attendees and pop-up shops at meeting sites to in-store private events and group programs for attendees and their families.

Macy’s Visitor Savings Pass   

Macy’s provides a 10% Visitor Savings Pass for both domestic and international visitors and it makes for an ideal addition to registrant welcome bags. Meeting attendees can use the savings pass during their down time to go shopping at Macy’s.

eCoupon and eBlast Savings Offers 

For convention and meeting planners who would prefer to extend savings opportunities to their attendees via electronic means, such as the offers area of their website or designated convention app, Macy’s provides an eCoupon option with a special promotional code. Attendees can show the coupon on their mobile device when purchasing Macy’s products to receive the discount.

Convention planners can also provide discounts by sending a Macy’s savings pass to their attendees in an eBlast prior to the convention or meeting.

Private Events, Shopping Parties and Group Program Options

Macy’s also rents out space for private events, stages them and conducts group programs for convention and meeting participants. Options include evening cocktail events held on the sales floor; VIP Shopping Parties held during meeting down times or early in the morning prior to store opening; or a customized version of Macy’s group programs or store tours.

These include the guided tours described here—Historic Store Tours, Educational Store Tours, Flower Show Tours, Holiday Traditions Tours and Merchandising Tours.

These options are available in Macy’s stores across the country, in addition to such programs as the Breakfast Fashion Show, Cosmetic Master Class, Macy’s Modern Man program, cooking and tasting demonstrations and custom group programs designed to meet the unique needs and interests of your group.

The prices of these programs depend on the specific parameters, and can either be quoted on the basis of cost, or negotiated on the basis of in-kind sponsorship.

Macy’s also offers spousal programs for the family members of conference attendees--entertaining private events, shopping parties and group programs as described above.

Pop-Up Shops at Convention Sites and Hotels

To lend a truly unique aspect to a convention, Macy’s can set up a pop-up shop featuring Macy’s store merchandise (for example, sunglasses or cosmetics) at the convention center, hotel or other meeting site. The pop-up shop can function as a stand-alone entity or be integrated into a broader marketplace environment.

Dining Options

Macy’s stores incorporate both quick-bite and sit-down restaurants, and they can be made available as dining options for conference attendees in a variety of ways. Macy’s can set up private events at these dining destinations, provide discounts to them or arrange reservations. Here are some of the dining outlets available at Macy’s stores around the country: Chicago, Honolulu, Miami, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco.
