Regarding the Health Professions Network (HPN) site visit in Atlantic City: “I would like to take a moment to thank the Meet AC team on a personal level and as President of the Health Professions Network (HPN) for the amazing and very eye opening visit we head to Atlantic City last week. As someone who has been there several times in the past, I was very impressed with the way Atlantic City has transformed itself into what I consider to be a totally new environment for conference activities. The diversity of the hotels and their formats give a wide range of venues to any conference attendees along with a variety of diverse activities.
In reflecting on all of the things that we saw and experienced this past week, it occurred to me that Atlantic City is no longer a declining gambling location, but has reinvented itself into a thriving convention environment that embraces and celebrates its history while continuing to create its new presence.
Thank you again so very much for all of your hospitality, time, and wonderful experience each of us enjoyed. I'm quite comfortable in predicting that you will be seeing several of us and our groups in the future. Please express our appreciation to your staff and thank them for the time they were able to give us during this very unique and enjoyable experience,” wrote Lynn Brooks, President, Health Professions Network
"Words cannot express the appreciation to you and your amazing team. Thank you for helping to make Health Professions Network Spring Conference an enormous success. Without you this collaboration between HPN and the City of Atlantic City would not be possible. I know you and the other members of the Meet in AC team and host facilities spent many months planning the program -- and it showed.
Thank you for sharing your secret spots, memories, insights and fondness for your City with us; and most importantly for your enormous warmth and hospitality. Every facility, venue, restaurant and even transportation was fabulous and the service that we received was impeccable.
The experience allowed us to connect further with the locals, as they graciously provided fantastic venues, amazing meals and engaged in insightful dialogue. Thank you to all who contributed to make this a great event and to help us understand what your city is about, showing us around and being so welcoming and kind hearted. I look forward to returning and sharing this grand City with my members." Valarie Coyle, Meetings Director, Alliance of Cardiovascular Professionals
Jeff Hirschfeld, Owner and President of CHAMPS Trade Show stated, “Ease of travel and accessibility to the entire east coast is of prime importance to us, plus Atlantic City provides many hotel price point options. The Sheraton is my favorite, which is literally steps from the Atlantic City Convention Center and a top-notch hotel. Our show, CHAMPS Trade Show closes at 6:00 p.m. and Atlantic City takes over! One can play in the many casinos and walk the world-famous Boardwalk or beach. The night becomes buzzing with many shows and entertainment. You can’t forget about the amazing New Jersey pizza or the incredible White House Sub Shop. My personal favorite is the soul food at Kelsey and Kim’s on Melrose Avenue with the best friend chicken in the world. Then, there is the wonderful smiles and hospitality of the local businesses that welcome us with open arms. Ahhhhh must be the sweet smell of ocean air! We look forward to celebrating our 6th year at the Atlantic City Convention Center where dreams along with great service and support do come true.”
