Atlantic City Is Taking Meetings 'To the Next Level'

Meet AC and the Atlantic City Sports Commission had a fantastic year in 2015.

Just some of their accomplishments include booking two major industry shows—Meetings Professionals International and TEAMS, both who will host their 2016 events in Atlantic City.

New Jersey Event Industry Steps Up Its Sustainability Progress

A collage of greens blends together to form a diverse terrain across the Garden State. There are wild meadows and hemlock forests that span the Kittatinny Valley, tall saltmarsh grasses that frame Cheesequake Creek, sandy Pine Barrens stretching across the south and glistening waves that comb the coastline. There's a lot of beauty across New Jersey, and professionals and venues in the state are advancing in steps to ensure the meetings and events they host preserve and celebrate it. 

Teachers Head to Atlantic City

Today and tomorrow, the Atlantic City Convention Center is welcoming more than 45,000 teachers and educational professionals for the 2015 New Jersey Education Association Convention.

The association hosts this event yearly for members to network with fellow industry professionals and further themselves in their education-based knowledge through more than 300 seminars, workshops and programs.

Meet AC Launches New Websites
