(By Christina Abt) This is the sixth in a series of Broadway Market at the Crossroads interviews. This week one of Western New York’s most well-known and respected event promoters talks about his market experience, his viewpoints and his ideas on how… and if… the market can survive.
His lengthy resume includes experience as a skilled food promoter, a successful event organizer and a well-connected member of the Western New York Community. It’s an illustrious career that suggests “Wing King” Drew Cerza is the perfect candidate for the job of revitalizing the Broadway Market.
City of Buffalo Officials must have entertained that same thought when they installed Cerza as a charter member of the market task force in the fall of 2009. Yet it was only a few months before the veteran promoter stepped back from his advisory Broadway Market role. Cerza states that he made the decision despite his hopes for the landmark venue.
