The Atlantic City Sports Commission has been formed in Atlantic City. The commission was created by Meet AC, an offshoot of the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority, which is targeting to make Atlantic City busier with convention business. In the most recent economic impact study conducted by the National Association of Sports Commissions, amateur sport events generate nearly $8 billion annually and growing. Additionally there are over 1,000 sport event rights holders who each plan multiple events each year. The commission, along with Meet AC, is hoping to make Atlantic City more of a destination for these types of events.
