County officials feel the trade show and convention industry have been unfairly left out of the state’s reopening so far. This morning, officials gathered at Kennedy Plaza to voice their displeasure . Trade shows and conventions have been on hold since March 2020. The conference was hosted by Assemblymen Vince Mazzeo and John Armato. Greater Atlantic City Chamber President Michael Chait and County Commissioner Caren Fitzpatrick also spoke. According to Fitzpatrick, the industry generates nearly $2 billion for the city annually. Like the casinos, she added, it’s something the Atlantic City can’t move forward without.
