HNA Group was attracted to Rockland County, and Palisades in particular, because of the community's proximity to New York City and the well-educated workforce in Palisades and the surrounding communities.  HNA Group said that as its business expands in North America, the Group will need talented, dedicated employees to help fuel its growth

International Business Machines (IBM) plans to maintain a presence at the property.  The Palisades Conference Center provides leading financial institutions, universities and services organizations with training and education facilities, as well as hosting customer events.
