N.J. Chamber’s Atlantic City business summit & expo to return

The New Jersey Chamber of Commerce announced Thursday it will host another two-day summit & expo, March 14-15 at Harrah’s Resort in Atlantic City.

Last spring, the chamber gathered more than 650 business executives for a summit that produced recommendations to state leaders about New Jersey’s most pressing business and economic issues.

This year’s event will discuss the actions taken on these recommendations and provide a multiday program of information and tools that businesses can use to grow their bottom lines.

“The 2022 summit was a hit, and we expect next year’s to be bigger and better,” chamber CEO Tom Bracken said.

And, while the summit will be the chamber’s biggest event of the year, Bracken said it should not be viewed as a permanent replacement for the Walk to Washington.

“This business summit will be our primary focus because of the current dynamics of the state,” he said — noting both the recession and the still-lingering pandemic.

“We are still hopeful that there will be a right time to bring back the Walk the Washington.”
