Resorts Casino Hotel has unveiled a new multi-faceted, technologically advanced conference center adding 12,000 square feet of space and 12 additional conference rooms.
This expansion is part of the hotel's long-term property reinvestment plan, following the opening of the new $35 million Jimmy Buffet-themed Margaritaville and a nearly $70 million expansion and renovation of Resorts under the ownership of Morris Bailey.
"This conference center expansion is the latest example of the company's reinvestment in the property and Atlantic City as a whole as we continue to strategize ways to revive and turnaround this market," says Bailey. "From the growing demand for additional conference space from a new niche audience to the increasing popularity of Margaritaville, Resorts is showing a positive return on investment as a successful destination location on the East Coast."
Resorts now has more than 64,000 square feet of meeting and event space consisting of 24 meeting rooms, four ballrooms, two theaters, and the Tower Conference Level with spectacular views of the Atlantic City skyline and Atlantic Ocean.
"The technical aspects of the new conference center are sure to impress meeting planners and guests," says Mark Giannantonio, president and CEO of Resorts Casino Hotel.
Meeting attendees can wirelessly connect laptops and personal media devices simultaneously, while sharing screens with each other and even with colleagues in remote locations. Convenient touch panel controls and built-in wireless microphones are also featured.
Other highlights of the technology include full 1080P resolution on all screens; up to four devices can share these screens in QUAD view. Resorts installed higher resolution capabilities in anticipation of future needs, as well as high capacity Wi-Fi, electrical, and Telecom connectivity, which is hidden in the floors, minimizing cables. Architectural LED lighting options with dimmers feature programmable pre-sets. Twelve breakout rooms keep productivity high with built-in 80- or 90-inch LED monitors, drop-down screens, and cinema quality projection. Two theaters offer seating for 300 or 1,350 with state-of-the-art sound and light technology.
In addition to 12 new meeting rooms, the showpiece of Resorts' Conference Center is the Atlantic Ballroom, with a multi-use pre-function area and natural lighting. Four sets of operable walls divide the main conference hall into five potential spaces and allow groups to have an adaptable floor plan.
Boasting a prime location spanning 11 acres at the northern end of the Atlantic City Boardwalk, the resort features 942 guest rooms and suites in two hotel towers, a 80,000 square-foot casino, two theaters, six restaurants, two VIP slot and table player lounges, a casino bar, an indoor-outdoor swimming pool, a health club and spa, a salon, and retail shops.
Resorts Casino Hotel brought gaming to Atlantic City in 1978. Mohegan Gaming Advisors assumed management of the property in 2012.
