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."

 

The return of familiarization trips is one key sign that things are beginning to return to normal in our industry. In mid-June the Philadelphia Convention and Visitors Bureau (PHLCVB) hosted more than 40 meeting and convention planners for a three-day familiarity tour. Their stay included a visit to the Franklin Institute and world premiere exhibit Harry Potter: The Exhibition, evening reception on the Rocky Steps, and a watch party as Philadelphia was announced as a host city for the FIFA World Cup 2026.

 

If you’ve hosted meetings at the Javits Center or other venues in Manhattan, you know that there’s more than enough to do in the borough to easily keep attendees busy for days.

 

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.”
