In a city that hosts a marquee event pretty much every night of the year, ranking the biggest and most influential annual gatherings that take place in New York is probably more difficult than anywhere else. From the giant conventions like Comic Con and Fashion Week to more elite invite-only affairs such as the Clinton Global Initiative, Time 100 Gala, and Wired’s BizCon (a new addition to the list this year), the city’s event calendar has no shortage of star power or impressive attendance figures.

Now, with burgeoning sectors like the local tech scene catching up to the advertising and entertainment industries that have called the city home for years, the event landscape has become even more diverse. Here’s a look at the 100 annual events that light up New York year after year.

To choose and rank the annual events on this list, we look at several factors, including economic impact, buzz, innovation, and an event's prominence within the communities it intends to serve.
