Atlantic City Convention Center


Atlantic City Convention Center

The Atlantic City Convention Center is located in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

The Center was developed in part as an aspect of the city's ongoing attempt to recreate itself as a year-round destination rather than a mere summer resort — the same thought process that later led to its development as the first major gambling center in the U.S. outside of Nevada in modern times.

Opening in 1997, the center includes convert|500000|sqft|m2|abbr=on of showroom space, 5 exhibit halls, 45 meeting rooms, a garage with 1,400 parking spaces, and an adjacent Sheraton hotel.

It is the home of the New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association high school wrestling championships.

Outside the convention center is an interactive bronze statue of Bert Parks holding a crown. When a visitor puts their head inside the crown, sensors activate a recorded playback of his "There She Is..." line through speakers hidden behind nearby bushes.

The Center is directly connected to a terminal for New Jersey Transit's Atlantic City Line train line to Philadelphia.

Nearby Boardwalk Hall, previously known as Convention Hall, is home of the Boardwalk Hall Auditorium Organ, dubbed the world's largest pipe organ. [ [http://www.acchos.org/html/introduction.html Atlantic City Convention Hall Organ Society: Introduction] , accessed June 27, 2006]
