Atlantic City Convention Center and Boardwalk Hall to Host Nearly 100,000 Visitors During the Month of February

ATLANTIC CITY, NJ (Thursday, February 1, 2018) The month of February will be buzzing with activity as the Atlantic City Convention Center and Boardwalk Hall welcome more than 100,000 attendees during several consumer shows throughout the month.

This Saturday, February 3, Easyriders Bike Show Tour will return to the Atlantic City Convention Center for its second year in Atlantic City. Easyriders is the most anticipated custom motorcycle show circuit of its kind in the country, uniquely offering local “backyard” builders a forum to compete and show their works of artistry with some of the biggest names in the custom motorcycle world.

On the Boardwalk this weekend, Spirit Unlimited, Battle at the Boardwalk will take over Boardwalk Hall with over 275 teams competing for the U.S. Finals Qualifier.

In the following weeks, the Atlantic City Convention Center will welcome the Atlantic City Classic Car Show, February 9-11, the Atlantic City RV and Camping Show, February 16-18, U.S. Futsal Northeast Championship, February 16-18, and the Progressive Atlantic City Boat Show, starting February 28 and concluding March 4.

Atlantic City businesses are expected to greatly benefit from the activity at both venues. The combined estimated economic impact is expected to reach more than $20 million with more than 7,450 hotel room nights contracted over the course of the month.

“Local businesses, restaurants and residents will be able to witness the impact these venues have on our local economy in the month of February,” said Spectra’s Dean Dennis, General Manager of the Atlantic City Convention Center. He continues, “It should be a great month for Atlantic City.”
