Los Angeles, CA – March 2017 / Newsmaker Alert / The excitement is building as Meetings Quest will feature exhibitors from meetings destinations around the country when it is held March 14–15 at the Borgata Hotel, Casino & Spa in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Hosted by Meet AC and presented by Association News, Meetings Quest is the nation’s longest-running series of educational and networking events for association, corporate, government and religious meeting planners.

“We are very pleased by the number of destinations that have signed up to exhibit at Meetings Quest in Atlantic City,” said Timothy Schneider, president and CEO of Schneider Publishing, which publishes Association News and organizes Meetings Quest. ”From Newark in the East to Bloomington, Minnesota, in the Midwest to Denver and Albuquerque in the West, we are seeing interest from destinations around the country. We look forward to connecting meeting planners with these prospective host cities and many others.”

According to Schneider, destinations that have committed to Meetings Quest in Atlantic City include Mississippi’s Gulf Coast, Valley Forge and Plano, Texas.

In addition, a session on crisis management and event security will feature Steven Hacker, author of the monthly “Association Doctor” column for Association News and the former president of the International Association of Exhibitions & Events. The keynote address will feature seven-time Olympic medalist Shannon Miller, who will discuss how the gold-medal mindset leads to victory, whether at the Olympic Games, in an exhibition hall or a boardroom.
