It’s that time of year again, the annual Network TV Upfront Presentations – one of the best opportunities to meet celebs in NYC – are underway.
The Upfronts are annual presentations where the TV networks reveal their fall line-ups to advertisers and the press. They also bring their biggest stars to really make an impression. Though there is no public access to these events, they can still be a perfect opportunity to meet celebrities as they are arriving or leaving.
Check out some tips for meeting celebs at the Upfronts in our NYC Field Guide!
Stay tuned for more information about the exact venues, times, after-party, and fan events as it becomes available.
Also, feel free to use this post as an Open Thread to discuss where and how to meet celebs during the 2014 TV Network Upfronts in the comments below!
