Tourism conference yields ideas for boosting Atlantic City turnout

    N.J. Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno has vowed to “die trying” to fix Atlantic City and not let Pennsylvania’s gaming revenue overtake New Jersey’s.

    She had a little help from some tourism and marketing experts during yesterday’s portion of a three-day tourism conference in Atlantic City.


    A group of tourism, marketing and hospitality experts — mostly women — gathered at the conference yesterday to share their solutions to Atlantic City’s struggle, as the Press of Atlantic City reported.

    Suggestions ranged from marketing the city cohesively instead of just as a gaming destination, to providing better transportation and appealing to new demographics.
