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.
