Sprawling across nearly 31 acres, the Atlantic City Convention Center is built to accommodate everything from business conferences to trade shows. Granted the "Award of Excellence in Architectural Design" by the Pennsylvania Society of Architects, the architecture and d├ęcor of the Convention Center has acclimated to the surrounding seascape. Carpets and wallpaper resembling the ocean waves lead visitors toward a 90-foot high skylight atrium in the lobby. The Convention Center is also dressed in paintings, photography, and sculptures that capture the beauty of the Atlantic City beach.

Alongside business seminars, the Convention Center plays host to a variety of trade shows and other events that are open to the public. Outdoors-themed and nautical-themed trade shows such as the International Power Boat Show find a natural home in the seaside convention center. The Center has also opened its doors to the popular Antique Roadshow and sporting events such as the National Cheerleading Championship. The Philadelphia National Candy, Gift, and Gourmet Show is a yearly treat, usually held in September.

Located near the Atlantic City Expressway, the Convention Center is a convenient location for out-of-town visitors and offers them several transportation options. While the fees at the Center's parking lot seem reasonable at $12 for the first four hours, the money can quickly add up if visitors are sitting through long meetings or perusing trade shows. The better option, if possible, is to take advantage of the onsite NJTransit Rail Terminal if you are visiting from Philadelphia or the ACES Train Service from New York City. If the Boardwalk resorts don't tempt you, there is a Sheraton Hotel located right next door to the Convention Center.
