Halloween may be around the corner, but Atlantic City is enjoying an October that’s anything but spooky. After a successful MEDCO Customer Show at the start of the month, the Atlantic City Convention Center is welcoming four events through the remainder of October. These include the Northeast Regional Carwash Convention, with former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie the keynote speaker; the annual Atlantic Coast Veterinary Conference; Dino Stroll, an interactive consumer event that transforms the Convention Center into the Mesozoic Era and allows attendees to get up close to life-size dinosaurs, and the one-day WILD Dance Intensive.

Atlantic City expects to welcome more than 15,000 visitors for these four events.

“Atlantic City is open for business, and we are thrilled to welcome new and annual events throughout the destination,” says MEET AC’s President and CEO, Larry Sieg. “Attendees can expect safe in-person events and discover a diversity of experiences after the meetings and events are through.”  For complete Atlantic City tourism and convention information, visit meetac.com
