The venue will be the Sheraton LaGuardia East Hotel in Flushing, New York City. New York City is an international tourist destination, receiving 56 million tourists in 2014 alone. Several sources have ranked New York the most photographed city in the world. Times square, known as the city's heart, is the brightly illuminated hub of the Broadway theatre district. The Statue of Liberty greets new arrivals to the Americas by ship in the late 19th and early 20th century, and is a globally recognized symbol of the United States. Flushing is associated by many with the National Tennis Centre, since Flushing Meadows has been the home of the US Open Grand Slam tennis tournament every year since 1978.
