Williamstown Launches Website

Williamstown, N.J., has launched a new website to inform people—from residents to developers—about the town. The site (growwithwilliamstown.com) reflects the latest branding and logo for the suburb.

“This new website showcases the growth and prosperity of our town,” says Mayor Daniel P. Teefy. “The main navigational sections of the site outline who we are, where we are and what incentives are offered to ease the new business process here in Williamstown.”

Playing Tourist

Do you ever play tourist in your own hometown? I lived in New York City for a decade and never visited the Statue of Liberty or the Empire State Building until I actually moved away. It’s funny how in between all of the duties of regular life you never stop and smell the proverbial roses in your own backyard. I decided I needed to change that a few years ago and now play tourist all the time. It’s really fun to act like you don’t know anything about a place when you talk to taxi drivers and bellmen at the hotel…you never know what you might learn!

 

Happy Anniversary Harrah’s!

 If you’ve been reading anything to do with NJM+E, you know we celebrated our first Best of NJ Readers’ Choice awards in August. We’re still on a high from the great event, but we do realize it’s not all about us! We at New Jersey Meetings + Events wanted to take a moment to give a (virtual) round of applause to Harrah’s. The Atlantic City resort hotel opened their Waterfront Conference Center one year ago in September 2015. Happy anniversary! Have you been to Harrah’s? I attended MPI WEC there this past summer and was impressed with the modern look and feel.
