Atlantic City is ready to create meaningful meetings together and sustainability efforts throughout our seaside destination show for itself.
Atlantic City’s convenient location allows for visitors and meeting attendees to safely travel in the comfort of a car, proving to be an eco-conscious mode of transportation. However, air travel is available at the Atlantic City International Airport, which is within 12 miles of Atlantic City, and the Philadelphia International Airport is within 60 miles from Atlantic City. Located in the heart of the northeast and surrounded by many major cities, it’s the perfect destination to hold your next meeting or convention for easy accessibility.
Leading the way with sustainable and energy efficient efforts, Atlantic City can give you the space you need to meet safely and comfortably! With more than 17,500 first-class hotel rooms, 2.2 million square feet of meeting space citywide and 486,600 contiguous square feet of exhibit space at the LEED Gold and GBAC STAR-certified Atlantic City Convention Center, we have the wide open space you need for your group to meet with the proper social distance specifications. Adding to the energy efficient efforts is the largest single roof mounted solar array in the United States, which consists of 13,000 individual panels and covers over 290,000 square feet.
In need of an affordable, safe and ecological mode of transportation for your attendees? The Atlantic City Jitney is the answer. Powered by compressed natural gas, this people mover runs throughout the city or can be tailored for a specific route for your event.
The Atlantic County Utilities Authority (ACUA) also plays a vital role in Atlantic City’s energy efficiency efforts. Located at ACUA, the Jersey-Atlantic Wind Farms have saved ACUA more than $6.1 million in energy costs and have prevented more than 62,000 metric tons of CO2 from entering the atmosphere since its opening. This permits for a continued clean, safe and healthy environment.
Focused on the future citywide sustainability and clean beaches, Atlantic City continues to offer a variety of corporate social responsibility (CSR) programs. Regular beach clean ups help save and protect our important wildlife and ecosystem, while organizations such as the Atlantic City Boys & Girls Club, Atlantic City Rescue Mission, South Jersey Food Bank and the Humane Society of Atlantic County always welcome volunteers to complete your organizations detailed CSR accreditations and help regenerate our destination.
Beautification projects are necessary for every destination and its environment to thrive. Atlantic City is home to more than 50 murals, which can be found throughout the city on exterior building walls. The stories behind the artists’ work are as moving as the murals they create and continue to showcase the vibrancy of Atlantic City. In addition, after strolling the world-famous Boardwalk you may find yourself resting in an Adirondack chair that has been constructed and remodeled by local artists.
Atlantic City is focused on the future as we continue to diversify ourselves and lead the way in regenerative tourism. We look forward to working with your group to establish meaningful meetings and conventions before, during and after your event. Experiences await here.
