Bloomberg L.P. will not host its popular afterparty following the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner this year, as reported first by Mike Allen at Axios.
As per a spokesperson with Bloomberg:
“We surveyed some of the past attendees and didn’t get as much interest in a party this year as we’ve had in the past, so we decided to focus on the dinner and the WHCA.”
Vanity Fair — Bloomberg’s long term co-host for this annual afterparty – had announced earlier this month it would not participate.
Strong interest in tickets by news organizations suggests the Correspondents’ dinner will be sold out again this year, as always.
