Meet Atlantic City Launches Three News Web Sites
Meet AC, a tourism development agency designed to attract meetings and conventions to Atlantic City, has officially launched three new websites this year and three more websites are in the works to launch within the next six months.
Recently, Meet AC has established our convention website, www.meetinac.com, which features our convention calendar, comprehensive meeting planner tools such as guides, floor plans, specs and RFP forms, along with marketing materials such as a press kit, press releases, video podcasts and employee contact information.
The Atlantic City Convention Center website has merged with Meet AC and soon exhibitors will be able to make purchases directly through the website, when integrated with our Ungerboeck CRM system.
The second website launch is the Atlantic City Sports Commission website, www.atlanticcitysports.org, which boasts venue information, upcoming events and destination services.
The Atlantic City Sports Commission was officially formed Jan. 13 as a 501 (c)(3) organization with the support of Meet AC and the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority (CRDA) to attract sporting events, conventions and competitions to Atlantic City.
Meet AC also has launched a photo source site and we encourage media to obtain photos from this site with proper credit, photos.meetinac.com. This photo source site will allow you to download high-resolution photos of Atlantic City, meeting venues within the city, event photos for the Atlantic City Sports Commission and conventions.
In the coming months, Meet AC is set to launch a Group Motorcoach website, Atlantic City Film Commission website and a website that is catered towards market research.
All of the current and future websites are compatible with mobile, easy to navigate and filled with robust information that educates meeting planners, show managers, exhibitors and attendees on what Atlantic City has to offer, according to Meet AC officials.
“I am very pleased with the direction that Meet AC is going in. 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,” said Jim Wood, president and CEO for Meet AC.
He added, “As the meetings segment increases, it means more jobs, more delegate spending in Atlantic City and overall more non-gaming growth as Atlantic City continues to diversify its tourism portfolio.”
Until recently, the opportunity to have a celebrity attend an event, attach themselves to a name-brand or endorse a certain product or idea was untouchable. The thought of paying a person to promote a product was seen as something only Fortune 500 companies could afford. Social media has changed all that with brands and businesses utilizing celebrity influencers to connect directly with their demographics and increase sales and profits.
