Halloween may be around the corner, but Atlantic City is enjoying an October that’s anything but spooky. After a successful MEDCO Customer Show at the start of the month, the Atlantic City Convention Center is welcoming four events through the remainder of October.
Atlantic City Convention Center
Meet AC and Caesars Entertainment hosted an event for around 150 attendees at the Atlantic City Convention Center as part of the second annual Global Meetings Industry Day (GMID). The event highlighted the importance of face-to-face meetings with an industry panel of speakers. Following the panel, attendees enjoyed lunch and a series of educational sessions focusing on corporate social responsibility, tech security and more.
Sometimes in an effort to find something different, corporations forget that holding a meeting or event in a reliable convention center—which has expertise in providing the best in service and the amenities to shine—is really the best option. Luckily, New Jersey has a plethora of great convention centers that can accommodate any size event.
Not just this year, but many years running, Atlantic City has been host to a plethora of events—from the New Jersey Education Association Convention to the Challenge Atlantic City Triathlon. With such a wide variety of events, it’s not a shocker to think they have significantly boosted the economy.
A collage of greens blends together to form a diverse terrain across the Garden State. There are wild meadows and hemlock forests that span the Kittatinny Valley, tall saltmarsh grasses that frame Cheesequake Creek, sandy Pine Barrens stretching across the south and glistening waves that comb the coastline. There's a lot of beauty across New Jersey, and professionals and venues in the state are advancing in steps to ensure the meetings and events they host preserve and celebrate it.
When people hear Atlantic City, thoughts of the boardwalk, blackjack tables and top entertainment usually come to mind. Of course, the weather has played havoc with the coastal town of late, with Hurricane Sandy and other storms hurting casino business and causing major damage to the area. Still, residents say things are looking up and there’s a positive energy in the air.
Meet Atlantic City has recently revealed that Triple Play REALTOR Convention and Trade Expo officials have signed a three-year deal to remain in Atlantic City for 2016, 2017 and 2018.
The convention, which brings in more than 8,000 attendees each year, features 80 educational seminars led by top industry experts. The expo also holds 325 booths that give visitors cutting-edge tools they can use to enhance their real estate business. The annual estimated impact is more than $4.8 million each year.
It’s a busy week ahead as the Atlantic City Convention Center ramps up to welcome more than 13,000 attendees for three events throughout the week.
