ATLANTIC CITY — The New Jersey State League of Municipalities will return to the city this week for its 102nd annual conference, which provides an economic boon for the resort during the off-peak season.
More than 22,000 exhibitors and delegates are expected to attend the three-day conference, which is estimated to generate more than 8,400 hotel rentals and $10 million in spending that will benefit Atlantic City, according to Meet AC, an organization tasked with marketing the city.
Also in attendance will be Gov.-elect Phil Murphy, who is scheduled to be the keynote speaker Wednesday.
“We are looking forward to holding the 102nd and 103rd annual New Jersey League of Municipalities Conferences at the Atlantic City Convention Center,” said Michael Darcy, executive director of the league. “Both the City of Atlantic City and Meet AC continue to make sure all our needs are met even as we must move some 18,000 attendees around eight properties over three days of meetings and events. It’s a great partnership that creates great results.”
Municipal officials from throughout the state will have the opportunity to attend more than 100 sessions that focus on best practices for local government, including shared services, economic development and rebuilding communities.
