ATLANTIC CITY, NJ (Monday, December 7, 2015) The Atlantic City Convention Center will welcome more than 8,000 attendees over the next four days for the Triple Play REALTOR® Convention and Trade Expo.

The estimated delegate spending is expected to reach more than $5 million. In addition, more than 3,900 room nights have been contracted by convention center visitors throughout the week.

The Triple Play REALTOR® Convention includes 80 educational sessions from top industry experts and explores cutting edge tools to enhance their business at the 325 booth trade expo.

The convention industry has a tremendous impact on Atlantic City’s economy as evidenced by the tremendous impact Triple Play REALTOR® Convention will have on our local hotels, restaurants, retail outlets and casinos each year,” Wood said.
