ATLANTIC CITY, NJ (January 25, 2017) – Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa today announced the unveiling of its 18,000-square-foot Central Conference Center. Scheduled to debut in May, the newly designed $11 million project will provide an exclusive meeting experience while effectively complementing Borgata’s dynamic meetings and conventions program.

“The launch of Central Conference Center complements our event space, allowing us to accommodate more weddings, special occasions, trade shows, business expos and more,” said Mark Vanderwielen, Vice President of Hotel & Property Operations for Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa. “As the market-leading resort destination in the region, we recognize the importance of our meetings and conventions customers and are delighted to offer them an exclusive product containing a level of service that is unmatched anywhere in the city. "Designed by Avenue Interior Design, Central Conference Center features two stories of highly customizable event space including five meeting rooms, a boardroom and an office on the lower level; as well as a 6,500-square-foot clear span ballroom on the upper level. The strikingly conceived architecture features oil-rubbed metallic and bronze finishes, incorporating custom tabu zebrano millwork and trims with marble, granite and quartz stone fixtures. Specialized wallcoverings, sconces and carpet adorn the entire space, giving the feel of style and sophistication just steps away from the excitement of Borgata’s casino floor.

Occupying what was formally mur.mur nightclub, the bi-level venue boasts the latest in technology, offering high definition digital projection, TV and internet system capabilities paired with all digital distributed sound systems. Touch panel controls and décor lighting experiences allow for made-to-order services that can be uniquely individualized to fit any need. Borgata Executive Chef Tom Biglan (Borgata Buffet, The Metropolitan, Bread + Butter, Noodles of The World) will manage the culinary program for Central Conference Center with Executive Pastry Chef Thaddeus DuBois (Borgata Baking Company, Borgata Buffet, The Metropolitan, Bread + Butter) overseeing the pastry program.
