O’Connell & Goldberg, a top independent PR firm with offices in South Florida and New York, announced its selection by Metropolitan Hospitality at Citi Field, home of the New York Mets, to assist in its marketing/ public relations efforts. The agency will help increase awareness of the world-class event and hospitality destination, which produces year-round events on non-game days.
“We are delighted to be aligned with this major league destination,” said Barbara Goldberg, CEO and co-founder of O’Connell & Goldberg. “This incredible open-air ballpark is a perfect space for those seeking impressive and larger-than-life events.”
Citi Field features superb cuisine, fivestar service and more than 200,000 square feet of specialty event space, throughout all levels of the ballpark. When not hosting Mets home games, the venue, located in Flushing Meadows Corona Park, serves as an ideal space for corporate and leisure events, cocktail/wedding receptions, trade shows and charitable runs/walks that range in size from 20 to 40,000.
“We believe everyone deserves a one-ofa- kind event experience,” said Metropolitan Hospitality Vice President Heather Collamore. “At Citi Field, it begins with New York’s most uniquely exciting venue with a professional staff dedicated to delivering memories that will last a lifetime.”

The firm’s unique approach has impacted numerous business sectors including hospitality/ F&B, retail, real estate, healthcare, education, not-for-profit and corporate communications.
