Meet AC Annual Meeting Review

A YEAR OF GROWTH FOR THE ATLANTIC CITY CONVENTION VISITOR’S BUREAU

ATLANTIC CITY, NJ (Friday, December 11, 2015) Meet AC and the Atlantic City Sports Commission had a tremendous year in 2015 and we are eager to share our accomplishments. Highlights include landing two major industry shows with Meeting Professionals International and TEAMS, who have selected Atlantic City as their 2016 convention host city.

In 2015, future hotel room night bookings are projected to be up 34 percent over last year and in two short years, hotel room night bookings have doubled. Also, future convention delegate spending is up 31 percent over 2014 and projected delegate spending is up 70 percent over the past two years. The total Meet AC projected production year end will consist of 228,986 room nights and delegate spending will reach up to $185,639,748 million. In addition, for every $1 of luxury tax Meet AC invested in 2015, it’s returning $23 back to our local economy.

Jim Wood, President and CEO for Meet AC stated, “I am very pleased with the accomplishments that Meet AC and the Atlantic City Sports Commission have achieved in a short amount of time. The meeting and convention industry is vital and helps support the overall tourism industry in Atlantic City.”

Jeff Albrecht, General Manager of the Sheraton Atlantic City Convention Center Hotel and Meet AC Chairman said, “While serving as Chairman of Meet AC, I am pleased with the growth and progress the Meet AC team has attained. Atlantic City is taking meetings and conventions to the next level.”

2015 was a year of growth and progress and we invite you to join our Annual Meeting on Monday, December 14 at 2 p.m. at the Atlantic City Convention Center to take a deeper look into the meetings and convention industry.
