Here’s a look at a recent, successful event held right here in Atlantic City.
The 2018 Northeast Regional Futsal Championship brought 8,000 attendees to Atlantic City in February 2018. The Atlantic City Convention Center hosted the teams for the largest futsal tournament, east of the Rocky Mountains.
The organization contracted 4,000 room nights for the three-day event, and the Atlantic City Sports Commission assisted in coordinating housing for the teams during their time in the area. Tournament attendees were able to choose from a range of budget-friendly accommodations within the Atlantic City area.
With five exhibit halls ranging from 29,400-sq.-ft to 199,500-sq.-ft and 486,000 contiguous square feet of exhibit space, Atlantic City Convention Center was able to provide the tournament a variety of options for configuring the perfect setup for fields and accommodating the teams within the building.
Atlantic City is located within a few hours drive of one-third of the nation’s population, which made the city the ideal choice for this Northeast Regional Championship. The Atlantic City Rail Terminal connects directly to the convention center, with the Atlantic City Line connecting to Philadelphia.
The convention center was the perfect venue to host this indoor sport, which is a modified version of soccer that features five players per team on smaller fields.
With the tournament making an economic impact of $4.8 million, we look forward to welcoming this successful tournament back to the convention center in 2019.
