As if Atlantic City, N.J., hasn’t had enough exciting announcements, one more news of note has popped up.

TEAMS ’16, the leading conference and expo for the sports event industry, will take place in Atlantic City Sept. 26–29, 2016 at the new $125 million, 100,000-square-foot Waterfront Conference Center.

Hosted by SportsTravel magazine, the event is the world’s largest within the sports event industry.

“We are very excited to bring TEAMS to Atlantic City,” says Timothy Schneider, president and CEO of Schneider Publishing, which publishes SportsTravel magazine. “Many factors contributed to our decision to stage TEAMS in Atlantic City, including the city’s rich history and unique sense of place, which will serve as a huge draw to attendees. Meet AC’s commitment to supporting the sports-event community also made Atlantic City an obvious destination for TEAMS.”

Launched in 1998, the event now attracts more than 1,400 attendees each year, including CEOs, executive director and event managers.

“The Atlantic City Sports Commission is ecstatic to host TEAMS ’16 in Atlantic City,” says Jim Wood, president and CEO of Meet AC. “The sports business in Atlantic City continues to grow, whether it’s a convention or tournament. TEAMS will help us develop the AC Sports Commission as a cutting-edge agency and strengthen our relationships within the sports industry. TEAMS will generate substantial ROI for Atlantic City.”
