Atlantic City is ready to welcome group events with more than
1.5-million-square-feet of meeting space and 16,000 hotel rooms
“When it came to selecting the next host destination for Meetings Quest, Atlantic City was an obvious choice,” said Timothy Schneider, president and CEO of Schneider Publishing, which publishes Association News and organizes Meetings Quest. Last year, Atlantic City set a new record with 260 meetings and conventions booked, representing 289,422 future room nights committed to groups. “Atlantic City also hosted our company’s TEAMS Conference & Expo—the world’s largest gathering of sports-event organizers—and achieved a 98% approval rating among our attendees,” said Schneider. “We look forward to returning to Atlantic City, this time to introduce the destination to a wide variety of corporate and association meeting planners.”
For meetings and events, Atlantic City offers more than 1.5-million-square-feet of meeting space across a number of venues and more than 16,000 hotel rooms. A meetings and conventions mainstay, the Atlantic City Convention Center provides 500,000-square-feet of contiguous exhibit space as well as 45 meeting rooms offering nearly 110,000-square-feet of space. Another notable venue—and the newest addition to Atlantic City’s meetings scene—is the $125 million Harrah’s Waterfront Conference Center, which features 100,000-square-feet of function space.
Atlantic City is also home to an abundance of attractions, restaurants, retail and recreational activities, many of which can be found on the city’s historic, 5-mile Boardwalk. Atlantic City’s culinary scene is thriving as top chefs including Bobby Flay, Guy Fieri and Gordon Ramsay have opened signature restaurants there. A diverse range of shopping options include Tanger Outlets The Walk, The Playground at Caesars and The Quarter at the Tropicana Casino & Resort. At the Meetings Quest Opening Celebration, attendees will have the opportunity to experience the energy of the iconic Boardwalk at the Tropicana’s Boogie Nights.
