The Board of the New Jersey Casino Reinvestment Development Authority just approved an amendment to a previous agreement that will bring a thrilling sporting event to Atlantic City for the next three years.

Specifically, the board amended an original five-year deal that provided a fund reservation in amount that would not exceed $750,000 to host the Challenge Atlantic City Triathlon in conjunction with a Vigo and DelMoSports and Entertainment, LLC. The new agreement will reallocate the leftover $189,890.40 of funding to support a plan from Maximus Productions, LLC—owned by Stephen Del Monte—to host the Ironman Atlantic City 70.3 in 2016, 2017 and 2018.

The impressive event features a 1.2-mile swim, 56-mile bike ride and a 13.1-mile run. The hope behind the event is to bring an exciting, world-class triathlon to Atlantic City that will attract a large number of visitors to the city and sell thousands of hotel room nights.

“We are excited to continue our relationship with Mr. Del Monte and we look forward to bringing the Ironman event to Atlantic City over the next three years,” says John Palmieri, executive director, CRDA.

Due to COVID-19, non-essential travel was, or has been, banned for months. Long anticipated trips and in-person gatherings were canceled and people have adjusted to the new normal: staying at home and meeting over Zoom. However, states have been slowly lifting restrictions, and non-essential travel will soon be happening across the country again. However, some may not be as comfortable with the thought of traveling as they were before the pandemic.  

 

Although several cities are opening up again, many offices are still enforcing work from home policies. As they did when Stay at Home first began, plenty of organizations are still offering webinars with insights on how to tackle the new normal. Gaining new knowledge is a great way to use extra time that might have been spent on a commute. 

Here at M+E, we’ll keep the following list updated, as some webinars are live and some are pre-recorded. Please email lauren.pahmeier@tigeroak.com to add more applicable webinars to the list.
