The estimated delegate spending is expected to reach more than $13 million. In addition, more than 8,400 hotel room nights have been contracted by convention center visitors throughout the week.

This year, municipalities will celebrate the 100th anniversary of their League throughout 2015. As it has been for 100 years, the highlight of the League’s activities is the Annual Conference. The conference is an invaluable learning experience, which yields benefits throughout the year.

Commercial, government and association exhibits display the latest products and services for municipal government.

The event itself has an even broader impact on the state of New Jersey and we are incredibly proud to help host this event,” said Karen Totaro, General Manager, Comcast Spectacor at the Atlantic City Convention Center.
