Atlantic City, New Jersey Is Launching An All New Branding
MEET AC had been the name of the sales and marketing force that directly supports the Atlantic City Convention Center.
It was confusing and did not transfer into proper brand awareness, etc.
Effective today, Tuesday, January 17, 2023, that is all set to change.
“MEET AC” is no more.
Welcome to “Visit Atlantic City.”
It’s simple, memorable, and relatable. Whereas “MEET AC” always required an explanation as to who there are and what their name meant. “Visit Atlantic City” is smart and self-evident from the very first glance.
"As Atlantic City is going through a major reinvestment to create a safer, culturally-rich, and sustainable community, the time was ripe for us to review our branding and reinvest in ourselves," said Larry Sieg, President, and CEO of Visit Atlantic City.
"While our primary focus remains on bringing meetings and events to the destination, our new name broadens the enticement to choose us. In addition to having one of the largest convention centers on the cast Coast,” said Sieg.
“We also offer an unmatched array of experiences where attendees can meet. connect and let loose with our famous boardwalk and beaches. glitzy casino resorts and world-class entertainment options,” said Sieg.
The Atlantic City Convention Center provides:
- 486,600 contiguous square feet of exhibit space.
- 45 meeting rooms, which includes an additional 109,100 square feet.
- Elaborate pre-function space.
- All of the amenities that you would expect to see in a world-class destination resort.
- The Atlantic City Convention Center has developed a reputation as the North East’s business address.
The new branding was introduced at “Visit Atlantic City’s” annual meeting.
