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.”

 

Atlantic City

Last year was the highest grossing ever for the United States commercial gaming industry.* Meeting planners who hold gatherings at casinos may just feel like they’ve hit the jackpot, too. Casino-based events provide one-stop convenience—the amenities of convention centers and bountiful hotel rooms, plus activities, dining, and nightlife. 

 

Doreen Guerin grew up an Air Force brat, living in Texas, Louisiana, and later England and France. When she was 13, her parents moved to Queens and, Guerin says, “I’m a New Yorker through and through.” That’s apparent from her accent as well as her dedication to the Javits Center, where, as the senior vice president of sales and marketing, she oversees the booking and event-related operations for more than 170 events each year.
