Waterfront Conference Center Opens at Harrah's Resort Atlantic City




Atlantic City's MICE appeal got a strong boost yesterday when Caesars Entertainment Corporation officially opened its Waterfront Conference Center at Harrah's Resort Atlantic City. The $125.8 million center's grand opening was celebrated with a ribbon cutting, fireworks and customer event. The Harrah's Waterfront Conference Center has already booked meetings and conventions through 2019.

The 100,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility is reportedly the largest conference-hotel complex from Baltimore to Boston, providing a new option for the $280 billion national meetings industry that has a $16 billion foothold in the Northeast.

Designed by Friedmutter Group and located in Atlantic City's Marina District, the Harrah's Waterfront Conference Center can accommodate up to 5,000 attendees and has the flexibility to seamlessly convert from meetings, to banquets, to large assembly spaces. The 100,000 square feet of flexible meetings space offers versatile area volume that can be broken down into 56 separate small meeting rooms with up to 300 different configurations – reception, banquet and pre-function space.

The hotel has seen an increase of 90,000 advance room bookings for the upcoming 12 months, compared to 7,000 advance room bookings for the previous 12 months, which the management team credits to the new convention center. The 97 confirmed meetings to date include Bradley Caldwell, Rita's Italian Ice and Meeting Professionals International's 2016 World Education Congress.
