Celebrating #SmallBiz Week – Spotlight on Yacht Events

As the owner of Surowitz Enterprises, I often work with other small business owners to assist with a variety of business and social media needs.

Small Business Week 2014 is the perfect time for me to celebrate a few of my fellow #SmallBiz owners and their amazing businesses.

Today’s post celebrates Steven Tanzman and his business, Yacht Events, LLC.

Yacht Events

Steven Tanzman has more than 25 years in the luxury yacht and hospitality industries. Founded by Steven in 2003, Yacht Events LLC, coordinates five-star cuisine, service, and staged entertainment aboard some of the finest, privately owned yachts rich in detail and history along the East Coast.  Steven provides a high level of customer service and works with clients from event conception to event completion to create spectacular, one-of-a-kind celebrations. Cruises can accommodate 2 to more than 2000 guests for private yacht sailings, small family celebrations, corporate meetings, fundraising galas and more.

The beauty of the New York City skyline serves as the backdrop for many Yacht Events celebrations.  Some of the best views of Manhattan and The Statue of Liberty are seen from the water.  As native New Yorker now living in New Jersey, few are more passionate about this unique area than Steven.  He says:

“The New York area offers something completely different than anywhere in the world. Passengers love to go outside and see these views throughout the entire cruise… It’s a bit magical.”

Yacht Events has hosted corporations, business moguls, television networks, dignitaries and ambassadors, and several world champion NFL, NBA, NHL and MLB teams.  This past February, Yacht Events was part of the NFL VIP Tailgate Party at the first NY/NJ Super Bowl at MetLife Stadium.  Steven has planned a wide range of events including but not limited to: Anniversary Parties, Bar and Bas Mitzvahs, Milestone Birthdays, Business Meetings, Business Client Entertaining Cruises, Weddings, Rehearsal Dinners, Corporate Events, Fall Foliage Cruises, Film Shoot Locations, Proms, Graduations, Holiday Parties, July 4th Celebrations, New Year’s Eve Charters, Private Wine Tastings, Memorial Services, Family and Class Reunions, Surprise Parties, Team Building Events, Baby Showers, and Bachelor/Bachelorette Parties.

Steven has received high praise from clients and has been recognized by his industries as well.  He has been named “one of the leading consultants in the hospitality industry” by Catering Trends Magazine.  The highly acclaimed Biz Bash organization has twice recognized Steven as one of the top 10 event producers in New York City.  In 2013, Yacht Events became a Certified Minority Business Enterprise by the National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC).

Steven Tanzman has a wonderful, natural way of making everyone feel like a VIP.  Steven’s passion for and knowledge of the event industry shines through from the moment you meet him.  Events planned by Steven produce unique memories to last a lifetime.  When you cruise with Yacht Events, you are sure to “see the city in a new light”.
