Not just this year, but many years running, Atlantic City has been host to a plethora of events—from the New Jersey Education Association Convention to the Challenge Atlantic City Triathlon. With such a wide variety of events, it’s not a shocker to think they have significantly boosted the economy.
AnimeNEXT—the largest independently organization Japanese anime convention in the New York and New Jersey—just signed a five-year contract to host the event at the Atlantic City Convention Center.
As predicted, the 2015 Great American Outdoor Show made a more than $70-million economic impact on the Hershey Harrisburg Region.
This year, the show, which took place Feb. 7–15 at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex & Expo Center in Harrisburg, brought an estimated $73 million to the area—a 4 percent increase from last year.
