Kings of Long Island

For more than a decade, Star Network, along with Schneps Communications (publishers of The Bethpage Best of Long Island and The Queens Courier), have successfully held similar events, honoring the powerful and prominent of the business, technology, banking, real estate, medical industries, and more, in Queens, Brooklyn and Staten Island. This will be the first to recognize the elite businessmen of Nassau and Suffolk counties. This past December, The Star Network hosted its first annual Power Women of Long Island that was attended by more than 700 businesspeople.

Along with dinner and the awards ceremony, the “Kings” (and sister, “Power Women”) events have become known for providing a unique opportunity for business professionals and community leaders in all sectors to mingle, share their accomplishments and make important connections. No other event brings together so many elite business professionals and leaders at one time. It is not to be missed.
