New Jersey: Little State, Lotta Wow

By NJ Travel & Tourism

There’s far more to New Jersey than its ideal location—although it is perfectly nestled between New York City and Philadelphia with easy access by car or plane. This smallish state is big on personality and packed with possibility, and it will wow attendees every chance it gets with meetings and conferences delivering unparalleled access and success.

Over 413 Locations for Gathering

A meeting venue can bring an awe-inspiring wow factor to any event. Add a wave of wonder at Wildwoods Convention Center overlooking the ocean or deal out heart-pounding excitement in conference facilities at glittering casino resorts situated directly on Atlantic City’s world-famous boardwalk or along its bucolic back bays. Raise a glass to progress at Departed Soles Brewing Co., Jersey City’s first post-Prohibition microbrewery and esteemed maker of traditional and gluten-free beers, or score huge at TD Bank Ballpark, home turf of the Double-A Somerset Patriots. Planners can even get attendees across the finish line at Meadowlands Racetrack—or leap up and applaud their performance at Mayo Performing Arts Center.

More Than 408 Places to Stay

Check in to trusted hotel brands up and down the state. Celebrate peak achievement at Crystal Springs (a high-end destination perched along the Appalachian Mountains that boasts a lofty collection of motivational team-building experiences) or charm attendees with a stay in one of many historic inns dotting the coastline. Planners will find room rates in New Jersey are highly competitive—especially when compared to its neighbors.

1,034-Plus Things to Do

Count on New Jersey to deliver outdoor adventures, respected golf courses, award-winning wineries, craft breweries, distilleries, and spas—plus 130 miles of soft, sandy shoreline hugging the Atlantic Ocean, a powerful incentive during both toes-in-the-sand and off-peak seasons. Planners can also treat the team to world-class gaming and entertainment, one-of-a-kind shopping, celebrated history, ovation-worthy arts and culture, and other post-meeting pursuits across countless attractions.

One Culinary Wow After Another

Great food makes a meeting memorable, and New Jersey serves it up deliciously—its seafood is prized up and down the East Coast. What’s more, its nickname, The Garden State, means there’s always a healthy helping of farm-to-table cuisine. International specialties also flavor the culinary scene with Italian, Indian, and Portuguese restaurants, plus so many others. As a year-round destination, any season is the right season to meet in New Jersey—and the time to plan for wow is right now.
