More than 50,000 guests are expected to visit Atlantic City this week due to two popular events taking place in the area.  

Both events are bringing in a large amount of people with 50,000 slated for the Progressive Atlantic City Boat Show at the Atlantic City Convention Center and 15,000 for the Battle at the Boardwalk National cheerleading competition at Boardwalk Hall.

Local businesses are expected to gain a large increase in spending and visitors as a result of the events. Spending is estimated to reach more than $5.2 million and 2,564 hotel room nights have been contracted.

The boat show kicked off Feb. 4, allowing visitors to see and shop for the latest boats and accessories. They also can receive hands-on learning from boat experts. The show will last for five days, concluding on Feb. 8. Tickets can be purchased here.

The cheerleading competition, hosted by Spirit Unlimited will take place Feb. 7 and 8. Future world champions will make an appearance. Two full-paid bids and four at-large bids to the Cheerleading Worlds will be awarded. Tickets can be purchased at the Boardwalk Hall Box office. 

The Hilton Dallas Lincoln Centre completed its $24 million renovation of the entire hotel and conference center. Renovations began in 2020. 

The North Dallas conference center hotel renovation includes a full redesign of all 503 guest rooms, lobby and public areas, and food and beverage outlets. Additionally, the hotel’s 55,000-square-feet of meeting space was updated with new furnishings, technology upgrades, and the addition of a new 6,600-square-foot Lakeside Ballroom. 


The Opus Westchester, a member of Marriott’s Autograph Collection Hotels, made its debut in late spring 2021, offering 10,000 square feet of meeting and banquet space. Anyone attending a meeting there this summer will want to try this cocktail, a sophisticated warm-weather elixir that’s served exclusively in the Lobby Lounge.
