Meet AC, Atlantic City, N.J.’s tourism development agency, is shaking things up with three new websites this year and three in the pipeline set to launch within the next six months.

Recently, the organization established the convention website, which holds its convention calendar, a number of meeting planner tools and marketing materials. The convention center website merged with Meet AC. Soon, exhibitors will be able to make purchases directly through the website.

The second website launch is the Atlantic City Sports Commission website, which features venue information, upcoming events and destination services.

The agency also created a photo source site for media to obtain photos with proper credit. It allows visitors to download high-resolution photos of the city, meeting venues and more.

Next up is the Group Motorcoach website, Atlantic City Film Commission and site and one geared toward market research. All are compatible with mobile devices.

“I am very pleased with the direction that Meet AC is going in,” says Jim Wood, president/CEO, Meet AC. “Meetings and conventions help support the overall tourism industry in Atlantic City, and it is crucial to have the most up-to-date information and technology in this industry. As the meetings segment increases, it means more jobs, more delegate spending in Atlantic City and overall more nongaming growth as Atlantic City continues to diversify its tourism portfolio.”

Larger communities host citywides, while mountain resorts are more about “villagewides.” Taking this concept to heart, Beaver Creek has introduced a new collaborative website to help meeting planners envision multi-venue and multi-hotel meetings and events for groups of 150 to 1,500 guests at the Colorado ski resort and to submit RFPs. 

 

Colorado’s Meeting and Events Incentive Program was introduced to assist in the state’s recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. As an added bonus, it also will help groups get back into the practice of meeting face-to-face. Here’s a brief overview to help determine if your gathering might qualify.

How Does It Work?

 

The first property of the Limelight Hotel brand, Limelight Hotel Aspen has undergone a full makeover and will begin welcoming guests back at the start of the 2021/22 ski season in November 2021. Located next to Wagner Park in downtown Aspen, the upgrades include all 126 guestrooms and suites and public spaces such as the Limelight Lounge, conference room, lobby and bar. Guests and groups will notice a new arrival experience, expanded seating for dining, and relocation of the lounge’s stage area to better accommodate events.
