Post-Sandy at the Atlantic City Convention Center

Daniel Metz

The people of Atlantic City DO. And in that spirit, despite Super Storm Sandy, the Atlantic City Convention Center and it’s infamous Boardwalk Hall are back open for business. On Friday, Governor Christie declare Atlantic City and all 12 casinos open to the public. And indeed the public returned. 

In the immediate aftermath of the storm the team at the Center rolled out the welcome mat and provided shelter to those displaced by the storm’s impact. On Saturday, almost two weeks later, the last of those folks left the center as FEMA works to relocate the victims.

Sandy has not deterred The United States Sign Council. They are already packing for their Annual National Conference and Trade Show to be held at the center immediately following the Thanksgiving holiday.

Jeffrey Vasser, President, Atlantic City Convention & Visitors Authority said, “The Atlantic City Convention and Visitors Authority continues to work closely with groups whose meetings, conventions, events or motorcoach trips were impacted by Hurricane Sandy. While we are seeking to quickly reschedule as many events as possible that were affected by the storm, we are also looking forward to working with all of our valued clients and partners to plan for future events in our world-class destination.”

So for those of you that DO AC, they are back in business and ready for your arrival.
