A massive winter storm expected to slam the Northeast has forced the rescheduling of Meetings Quest in Atlantic City to June 28–29, 2017. The event was scheduled for this week at the Borgata Hotel, Casino & Spa in Atlantic City.
“No meeting planner ever wants to postpone an event,” said Timothy Schneider, president and CEO of Schneider Publishing, which publishes Association News and organizes Meetings Quest. “But thanks to our great partners at Meet AC and the Borgata Hotel, Casino & Spa, we have been able to reschedule Meetings Quest within a few hours of deciding to postpone it,” said Schneider. “We look forward to offering our attendees the chance to experience what makes Atlantic City such an outstanding destination for meetings and conventions. Chief among those things are a world-class convention bureau and venues that truly understand the meetings industry.”
“Atlantic City is pleased to be hosting the Meetings Quest conference, and we are delighted that Meetings Quest attendees will now get to experience Atlantic City during one of our peak seasons,” said Jim Wood, president and CEO of Meet AC. “Hosting Meetings Quest will allow us to showcase Atlantic City and its meeting and convention options to the meeting planners who attend Meetings Quest. It’s just one more example of how Meet AC is continuing its efforts in growing our meetings and convention market.”
