Revel Will Open In Summer 2012, Elevating Meetings Into Events

 Revel, set to open on May 15, 2012, will be the only beachfront location in the Northeast for meetings, conferences, and group travel. Featuring 160,000 square feet of convention and meeting space, Revel is designed specifically to meet the needs of all business events, from networking to large scale presentations and shows. The ratio of group space to rooms is the second largest on the East Coast, making the beachfront resort a place where it is as easy to conduct business as pleasure.

The conference space at Revel is not just expansive, but flexible, and can be configured to accommodate the needs of any group function. The resort can accommodate three meetings of 500 simultaneously, a large conference or a moderate team building event in its dedicated event center. Hospitality areas like the outdoor lobby garden - located six levels above the beach and ocean - offer generous landscaping, lighting features, and ocean views that complement the human connections that are still so critical to modern business.

Revel will make the group experience hassle free for meeting planners and for attendees. Dining, entertainment, shopping, retail concepts, fitness center and the beach are all accessible to conference goers in one resort. Each venue within Revel has been thoughtfully designed to enhance the experience from public areas to guest rooms to a variety of event spaces. The group facilities include:

• 70,000 square foot event center featuring unobstructed views with general session area for up to 5,500 attendees including a 30,000 square foot columnless ballroom and a 15,000 square foot amphitheatre

• 30,000 square foot meeting center with 20 meeting and boardrooms featuring a conference registration facility and a complete integrated business center.

• 60,000 square feet of indoor hospitality space including high-rise suites, VIP salons, pre-function areas, private reception areas, dining venues

• 90,000 square feet of outdoor hospitality space including a private beach, outdoor lobby garden and cabana area.

The professional sales team will be dedicated to achieving the goals of event planners and will assist with the creation of a customized program that weds logistical needs and personal desires; elevating meetings to events by utilizing the available space and amenities of the Resort. The Revel Production Studios will offer an array of services to meeting planners to build anticipation before an event, document its messages, and drive post-event communication. The Revel team can also stage manage events, activities, outings, and more associated with the meeting, and facilitate groups to bring out maximum creativity.

At opening, Revel's glass tower will offer 1,100 rooms (each with a view of the Atlantic Ocean), over 100 suites, 46 retail shops, 12 restaurants, 2 nightclubs, a 22,000 square foot spa and a 5,500 seat theater. Revel is not turning its back to the ocean, choosing instead a graceful glass façade that faces the waves and reflects them, literally and figuratively. Three pool areas and a private beach with cabanas just above the Boardwalk will provide a refined beach experience. Revel has everything needed for successful group events that attract attendees in one place.

This beachfront entertainment destination is only an hour from Philadelphia and two and one half hours from New York City, an easily accessible location for meetings and events.
