ATLANTIC CITY — The Claridge Hotel hosted a tour of its new 15,000-square-foot conference center Thursday, a $3 million project that includes a rooftop bar and a Mediterranean fast food eatery.

The expansion brings the hotel’s meeting space to 100,000 square feet, including a 6,400-square-foot room for general sessions or small trade shows, and four smaller conference rooms and boardrooms.

Conventions have been a growing industry in the resort. Over the past few years, several properties have invested millions to increase their convention space. Harrah’s Resort spent more than $125 million building its Waterfront Conference Center.

Resorts Casino Hotel spent $5 million on its 15,000-square-foot convention space.
