Atlantic City’s Resorts Casino Hotel is taking all-inclusive to a whole new level by applying it to group meetings.

The hotel—the first casino to open in Atlantic City and managed by Mohegan Gaming Advisors—is offering customized group packages that start at $199 per person, per night and inclue upgraded guest rooms, morning and afternoon coffee breaks, WiFi, three meals a day and more.

“Resorts’ all-inclusive package makes the meeting planner’s job much easier,” says Mark Giannantonio, president/CEO, Resorts Casino Hotel. “One price per person keeps the expenses within a budget and, at the same time, provides tremendous value for their investment.”

The hotel has 64,000 square feet of meeting space, making up 27 meeting rooms, four ballrooms and a multipurpose showroom. For entertainment and more, there are nine dining options, an 80,000-square-foot casino, two theaters, a health club, a swimming pool and more.

A recent multimillion-dollar expansion of its convention space added 12,000 square feet of event space with 11 new conference rooms.

"Resorts Casino Hotel is adapting to the market conditions by investing in new conference space and capitalizing on the variety of food and beverage choices we offer our guests. It is all part of our commitment to transform Atlantic City into a more vibrant, profitable destination with offerings beyond casino gambling," says Giannantonio. “We've already seen success in our meetings and convention business, with bookings up nearly 25 percent over the past two years. We're thrilled to leverage that success and build upon it with this expansion."

This summer, New York is welcoming its first sports betting bar and casino, Rivers Sportsbook Schenectady. The lounge, designed by DMAC Architecture, is approximately 1,800 square feet of comfortable chairs with charging ports, betting terminals and a gaming floor. With walls covered in high definition televsions, Rivers Sportsbook allows guests to place bets on several different games rather than just focusing on one.

 

Aventri, a leader in events management software (EMS), recently released ‘The Top 100 Meeting and Event Venues in the United States’ for 2019. The company took the ten top-rated meeting and event cities in the United States and picked the top ten venues in each area, compiling a list of 100 highly-regarded spaces. 

The guide identifies the two most valuable factors in attendee satisfaction as venue location and activities in the host city, followed by capacity, uniqueness and proximity to local attractions.

 

Mount Airy Casino Resort revealed its recent expansion with a ribbon cutting on May 2. The expansion included several additions and renovations to the resort's event space.

Before the expansion, Mount Airy Casino Resort lacked space to accommodate large scale meetings and conventions, but now it has a full-service four-star diamond resort that can accommodate 750 guests seated or 1,200 standing.
