Atlantic City’s 2021 Convention Season Closing Out Strong

ATLANTIC CITY, NJ (Wednesday, December 1, 2021) As we approach the end of a successful 2021 convention season, Atlantic City will finish strong and welcome three events this month to the Atlantic City Convention Center. 

Known as the best B2B rep show, the 2021 Action Expo has returned to the Atlantic City Convention Center through tomorrow. Since 2001, Action Expo prioritizes making pre-booking processes easy, timely, and inexpensive while creating intimate buying experiences. 

As the largest real estate convention and trade show in the United States, the Triple Play REALTOR® Convention & Trade Expo returns December 6-9. With over 100 educational sessions and 50 renowned speakers, participants will gather to learn the newest developments in real estate products and services. Organized by the New Jersey Association of Realtors, the event promotes education and networking for all attendees. 

Lastly, we will welcome the annual INTER[action] 2021 to Atlantic City as a new global, multi-hub hybrid experience from December 14-17. The organization will introduce a new innovative experience for suppliers to build and strengthen relationships through meaningful discussions for all clients. This event is imperative to Atlantic City as 450 participants will convene in Atlantic City for three days of networking, meetings, and experience all that the destination has to offer. 

“Since the return of meetings and conventions, we have seen increased attendance and boosted economic impact for the destination, while attendees are happily reconnecting and conducting business in person. As we continue safe in-person events, we are eager to continue an eventful 2022 convention season,” stated Meet AC’s President and CEO, Larry Sieg. 

Atlantic City expects to welcome more than 9,255 attendees for all events. Local Atlantic City businesses will be positively impacted by the activity throughout the destination, as the estimated economic impact will reach over $7 million. In addition, more than 6,585 hotel rooms have been contracted for these events.
 
Please note that all patrons entering the Atlantic City Convention Center will be required to wear a facial covering or mask and keep it on while in the venue, except as necessary to consume food or beverage. For complete Atlantic City tourism and convention information, visit www.meetac.com.
