Resorts Casino Hotel in Atlantic City, N.J., added one more factor to its offerings—their conference center has officially opened its doors.

Boasting the latest in audio-visual technology, attendees will be able to wirelessly connect laptops and other devices simultaneously, while sharing screens with each other and even with colleagues in remote locations.

Other features include higher resolution capabilities, high-capacity Wi-Fi, electrical and Telecom connectivity and architectural LED lighting on dimmers with programmable pre-sets. 

There are twelve breakout rooms and an Atlantic Ballroom. Four sets of walls divide the main conference hall into five spaces and provide with an adaptable floor plan made for a variety of uses. With the new conference center, Resorts now has 24 meeting and function rooms with more than 64,000 square feet of usable space.

“Resorts Casino Hotel is dedicated to ensuring that our leisure and business travelers are always offered the best that Atlantic City has to offer,” says Morris Bailey, owner, Resorts. “We are committed to continuing to reinvest in the property and to offer the finest in meeting space, lodging, gaming, dining and entertainment.”

 

"We have always done it this way" just doesn’t cut it anymore. The landscape of meeting planning is going through a quiet revolution, and the old rules no longer apply. Instead, they are being replaced with new treatments from the once-sacred conference tote bag to the way chairs in the ballroom are arranged. We talked to meeting planners who are creating fresher, more authentic approaches to your average meetings.  

From “Same Old” to “Can’t Miss”

 

There is nothing like the energy of a college campus as students return for the fall semester. By the time Labor Day hits, many students are itching to get back to their friends and return to routine, even at the cost of exams, papers, and presentations. 

 

Lauren Bennett McGinty took over as executive director of Explore Minnesota Tourism in November 2021. The longtime Minnesota resident who moved here from Milwaukee when she was four has thoughtful reasons about why she remains in the North Star State.

“I moved to Minneapolis after I graduated from [Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter], and I put my roots down here,” she says. “I think a lot of it is I continue to find something new everywhere I go, and the people here are just wonderful. We have such a diverse and rich culture. I love everything about it.”
