NEW for 2022: Upgraded Ballroom Sound System

The DCAT organization is pleased to announce that we will be upgrading the sound system for 94th DCAT Annual Dinner. The ballroom of the New York Hilton will be equipped with a state-of-the-art Full Range Flown Speaker system, consisting of 18 speakers distributed uniformly throughout the space, and several additional floor supported speakers distributed throughout the balcony and under the balcony.
This powerful and dynamic sound system will provide greater volume and clarity for all dinner guests to enjoy the evening’s entertainment without any distraction of ambient noise. To help ensure the success of the dinner’s sound quality, DCAT has also retained professional audio personnel to supervise each zone of the ballroom throughout the dinner in order to monitor and communicate any needed sound adjustments to the Audio Engineer.

A Tradition Since 1926

The first annual dinner of the DCAT organization was held in April of 1926 when members determined that an event, such as an annual dinner, would aid them in meeting and getting to know other members of their industry. Nearly a century later, the DCAT organization still hosts this very special black-tie dinner every March in New York City. 

Held on the Thursday evening of DCAT Week, the DCAT Annual Dinner features some of the most notable and interesting keynote speakers from a variety of areas including science, politics, entertainment and sports.
