Metropolitan Hospitality at Citi Field announced recently that they will be undergoing a rebranding effort that will feature a new name and logo effective September 9, 2020. The non-game day event arm will be renamed Mets Events and will continue to focus on hosting successful events both inside and outside the ballpark. Mets Events specializes in all types of non-baseball events, including concerts and music festivals, social events, corporate functions, athletic-style races, food and beverage festivals, and much more. Past notable events include the 2018 NHL Winter Classic; Cirque du Soleil’s TOTEM, AMALUNA, & LUZIA Shows; Major League Soccer and International Soccer Matches; Spartan Race; Electric Daisy Carnival; Rolling Loud Music Festival; and high-end concert tours, including Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, Classic East, BTS, Zac Brown Band, and the Foo Fighters.
“We take pride in providing world-class experiences, and our new name and mission will embody the spirit of Mets baseball, its loyal fans, and the greater Queens community,” said Vice President of Mets Events, Heather Collamore. “We are thrilled to be able to reinvigorate our brand, engage a larger audience, and showcase our abilities and creative ideas at the ballpark.”
Mets Events will continue to host all their events at Citi Field, home of The New York Mets.
