Atlantic City is Open for Business and Ramping Up Convention Season

ATLANTIC CITY, NJ (Monday, October 4, 2021) Coming off the successful MEDCO / Ace Tool Customer Appreciation Show, Atlantic City is open for business and ramping up convention season by welcoming four events to the Atlantic City Convention Center throughout the remainder of October.

The annual 2021 Northeast Regional Carwash Convention (NRCC) begins tomorrow at the Atlantic City Convention Center through October 6. NRCC has planned a great conference lineup with keynote speaker and former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, along with educational sessions and expert exhibitors for all things related to the carwash industry.

The annual Atlantic Coast Veterinary Conference (ACVC) is celebrating 32 years and will be held October 11-13. Attendees will receive an engaging educational experience, earn CE credits plus interact and network with peers, friends, and faculty.

Dino Stroll is a new consumer event for the Atlantic City Convention Center. This interactive experience will allow attendees to get up close to life-like and life-size dinosaurs, some standing over 25 feet tall and spanning over 60 feet long. The Atlantic City Convention Center will transform into the Mesozoic Era with prehistoric dinosaurs from the Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous periods. The event will stroll into the Atlantic City Convention Center October 23-24 and is a family-friendly event. Tickets can be purchased here.

WILD Dance Intensive will return October 24 with their one-day dance intensive class with a one-of-a-kind dance experience in an encouraging, fun, and creative environment. The faculty is made up of world-renowned dance choreographers and educators that are committed to the future of young dancers. 

“Atlantic City is open for business, and we are thrilled to welcome new and annual events throughout the destination. Attendees can expect safe, in-person events and discover a diversity of experiences after the meetings and events are through,” stated Meet AC’s President and CEO, Larry Sieg.

Atlantic City expects to welcome more than 15,000 visitors for the four events. Local Atlantic City businesses will be positively impacted by the activity throughout the destination, as the estimated economic impact will reach over $6 million. In addition, more than 2,200 hotel rooms have been contracted for these events.
