Resorts Casino Hotel in Atlantic City, N.J., added one more factor to its offerings—their conference center has officially opened its doors.

Boasting the latest in audio-visual technology, attendees will be able to wirelessly connect laptops and other devices simultaneously, while sharing screens with each other and even with colleagues in remote locations.

Other features include higher resolution capabilities, high-capacity Wi-Fi, electrical and Telecom connectivity and architectural LED lighting on dimmers with programmable pre-sets. 

There are twelve breakout rooms and an Atlantic Ballroom. Four sets of walls divide the main conference hall into five spaces and provide with an adaptable floor plan made for a variety of uses. With the new conference center, Resorts now has 24 meeting and function rooms with more than 64,000 square feet of usable space.

“Resorts Casino Hotel is dedicated to ensuring that our leisure and business travelers are always offered the best that Atlantic City has to offer,” says Morris Bailey, owner, Resorts. “We are committed to continuing to reinvest in the property and to offer the finest in meeting space, lodging, gaming, dining and entertainment.”

 

Remote working has become mainstream with the continued presence of COVID-19. While many people have welcomed the new normal of working from home, others miss the separation of spaces, as many corporate offices have remained closed since March. Without the daily obligation to go into the office, professionals have the ability to travel more freely. Hotels across the country are creating “work from hotel” deals–a play on “work from home”–so people can explore new places while still fitting in their 9 to 5.  

 

After several months of renovations, the DoubleTree by Hilton Philadelphia-Valley Forge is now open as the Alloy – King of Prussia, a DoubleTree by Hilton.

 

Due to COVID-19, non-essential travel was, or has been, banned for months. Long anticipated trips and in-person gatherings were canceled and people have adjusted to the new normal: staying at home and meeting over Zoom. However, states have been slowly lifting restrictions, and non-essential travel will soon be happening across the country again. However, some may not be as comfortable with the thought of traveling as they were before the pandemic.
