The Atlantic City Convention Center hosted one of the biggest conventions, with more than 35,000 attendees. The event was the 2014 New Jersey Education Association (NJEA) Convention.
 
The event generated 2,140 room nights and more than $13 million in delegate spending for Atlantic City. This was a huge positive impact for local businesses. This convention featured the largest attendance of the year for all events at the Atlantic City Convention Center.
 
“The New Jersey Education Association has been one of the most loyal and committed customers of Atlantic City and the Atlantic City Convention Center throughout the years,” said Gary Musich, vice president of sales for Meet AC. “There are not many cities that can say they host a convention of 35,000 people each year. Our partnership with the NJEA has worked for many years and we look forward to continuing the partnership for many years into the future. A conference of this size benefits every local business and support service in Atlantic City.”
 
The New Jersey Education Association Convention is an annual event that seeks to provide developmental opportunities to its attendees. The event gives teachers and education support professional s (ESPs) with more than 300 seminars, workshops and programs to increase their training for that profession.​

Pittsburgh may be known as The Steel City, but it has plenty of greenery, too, and opportunities for groups attending meetings here to get out in nature. The Pittsburgh CVB, which has the tagline “Only in Pittsburgh,” has proudly shared the news that the Great Allegany Passage was named a winner in the 2022 USA Today “10Best Readers’ Choice” travel award contest for “best recreational trail.”

In early March, Meeting Professionals International released a statement regarding the invasion of Ukraine: 

“In a show of support for the people of Ukraine, MPI will immediately suspend business with all companies in Russia. In addition, any plans to formalize a chapter in Russia will be paused….We remain concerned for the well-being of our community and our MPI members in Russia and Ukraine who were already seeking to climb out of the shadow of this pandemic and are now experiencing these unprecedented challenges.”
