NYCPAS Expo 2022
NYCPAS Expo 2021 Highlights
NYC Planner Addicts was founded in May 2016 by Catalina Hidalgo, a twin mom and successful business owner who lives in Brooklyn, NY. Catalina, or Cat as she is affectionately known by everyone, came up with the idea of a NYC based planner group when she was going through a very emotional time in her life.
Creating NYC Planner Addicts became a passion of hers; gathering people with a love of planners, stationary, crafting, organization and enjoying a good time became an outlet not just for herself but for all of her members. To date the group has over 2,600 members and is still very actively growing. The NYC Planner Addicts prides itself in being a peaceful and fun haven. We have come to know our members very well and call them friends and some even family. Our members feel free to talk planners, organization and practically everything else. We share our highs and some lows and everything planner/stationery/craft related.
NYC Planner Addicts has successfully held a variety of social events for our members; from small meet-ups to large scale events with over 100 attendees, we aim to please. Our success is based on the belief that if we support businesses, small and large alike, they will in turn support us. This principle has been very rewarding. We have been sponsored by corporate brands such as: Michael’s Craft Stores, Erin Condren, Paper House Productions and smaller companies such as Wonton in a Million, Paper Panduh and so many more. Our future is very bright and as we continue to grow we will continue to provide our members with the best events, giveaways and information as it relates to planners/stationery/crafting and organization.
There are various successful sub groups formed under NYC Planner Addicts: such as the NYC Junior Planner Addicts, NYC Planner Addicts – Shop Owners and very recently we created a Distance Learning Support Group. We have become a home to many crafting personalities across the United States. Our members are not only from NYC but from states all across the United States. We not only provide them a safe haven but a place to be themselves at their freedom with no prejudice nor judgement.

Without sponsors, we know our event would not flourish and grow. We are reaching out to share some sponsorship opportunities we created that not only help us plan and execute a successful event, but also are beneficial for your company and growing your customer base. This will be our 4th Annual event, and we are enthusiastic and stand by our mission of combining experienced leaders in the planning and crafting community with the up and coming voices of tomorrow. We are an inclusive community and welcome everyone no matter their experience in planning and paper crafting. We aim to showcase new techniques, provide thoughtful and engaging panels, showcase new designers/artists, and of course have fun, all while bringing small owned businesses to the forefront and help them get the exposure they deserve.
