SECAUCUS – The Meadowlands Liberty Convention and Visitors Bureau (MLCVB) and the Meadowlands Regional Chamber announced today that on May 22 they will host “The Big Game Experience,” a showcase of destination and event resources in the Meadowlands region for organizations interested in reaching prospective sources for Super Bowl 2014 business opportunities. The MLCVB and the Meadowlands Regional Chamber are captains of the “Huddle Zone,” in the Meadowlands, which is the local organizing committee charged by the NYNJ Super Bowl Host Committee to promote Super Bowl-related events and activities in the Meadowlands Region.
The Big Game Experience will take place at the Meadowlands Convention Center at 355 Plaza Drive in Secaucus and consists of a trade show, tours of various off-site restaurants and event venues, and seminars featuring veteran Super Bowl event promoters.
“The Big Game Experience will create a platform for local companies to develop business opportunities, provide a visibility mechanism to promote the region, and engage communities who want to create Super Bowl activities,” said Jim Kirkos, founder and president for the MLCVB.
The Exhibit Floor will be open from 12 to 7 p.m. and offer multiple exhibit opportunities.
It will also provide corporate event planners with tours of local venues and destination facilities. The tours will be arranged by categories including event spaces and performance venues, shopping and retail and hotels and restaurants.
Local and national event specialists will be joined by a set of panelists who will discuss topics including how non-profits, civic organizations and communities can plan and host Super Bowl-related events as fundraisers.
The day will conclude with networking opportunities and a special keynote address in the “Owner’s Lounge” which will also feature entertainment throughout the day for those returning from bus tours.
