Meet AC Launches New Websites

Meet AC, Atlantic City, N.J.’s tourism development agency, is shaking things up with three new websites this year and three in the pipeline set to launch within the next six months.

Recently, the organization established the convention website, which holds its convention calendar, a number of meeting planner tools and marketing materials. The convention center website merged with Meet AC. Soon, exhibitors will be able to make purchases directly through the website.

The second website launch is the Atlantic City Sports Commission website, which features venue information, upcoming events and destination services.

The agency also created a photo source site for media to obtain photos with proper credit. It allows visitors to download high-resolution photos of the city, meeting venues and more.

Next up is the Group Motorcoach website, Atlantic City Film Commission and site and one geared toward market research. All are compatible with mobile devices.

“I am very pleased with the direction that Meet AC is going in,” says Jim Wood, president/CEO, Meet AC. “Meetings and conventions help support the overall tourism industry in Atlantic City, and it is crucial to have the most up-to-date information and technology in this industry. As the meetings segment increases, it means more jobs, more delegate spending in Atlantic City and overall more nongaming growth as Atlantic City continues to diversify its tourism portfolio.”

Hotel Pennsylvania is one step closer to the completion of its top-to-bottom transformation. The historic New York marvel revealed 230 redesigned rooms incorporating modern comforts with original features. In celebration of its 100-year anniversary, phase two of three seamlessly represents an evolution of its renowned history.

 

Visit Bucks County (VBC) hosted its annual Event Venue Show, an exclusive meeting planner event, at the Michener Art Museum on Sep. 19. The event showcased 45 exhibitors from local Bucks County venues and businesses to 100 meeting and event planners from the Eastern Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York region.
