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.​

Due to COVID-19, non-essential travel was, or has been, banned for months. Long anticipated trips and in-person gatherings were canceled and people have adjusted to the new normal: staying at home and meeting over Zoom. However, states have been slowly lifting restrictions, and non-essential travel will soon be happening across the country again. However, some may not be as comfortable with the thought of traveling as they were before the pandemic.  

 

Although several cities are opening up again, many offices are still enforcing work from home policies. As they did when Stay at Home first began, plenty of organizations are still offering webinars with insights on how to tackle the new normal. Gaining new knowledge is a great way to use extra time that might have been spent on a commute. 

Here at M+E, we’ll keep the following list updated, as some webinars are live and some are pre-recorded. Please email lauren.pahmeier@tigeroak.com to add more applicable webinars to the list.
