“Since the return of meetings and conventions,” says Larry Sieg, Meet AC’s president and CEO, “we have seen increased attendance and boosted economic impact for the destination, while attendees are happily reconnecting and conducting business in person. As we continue safe, in-person events, we are eager to continue an eventful 2022 convention season.”

Local Atlantic City businesses will be positively impacted by the activity throughout the destination, as the estimated economic impact will reach over $7 million.

Incorporating the host city into the framework of the meeting is an effective way to enhance the content of the conference.
