 Resort Atlantic City is an indirect subsidiary of Caesars Entertainment Corporation (NASDAQ: CZR).
Caesars Entertainment officially opened Harrah's Atlantic City Waterfront Conference Center on Thursday, September 17th with a ribbon cutting ceremony. L-R: Michael Massari, Senior Vice President for National Meetings and Events, Caesars Entertainment; Mayor Donald A. Guardian (R), Mayor of Atlantic City; Senator Stephen M. Sweeney (D), Senate President, New Jersey's Third Legislative District; Gary Loveman, Caesars Entertainment Chairman; Mark Frissora, Caesars Entertainment President and CEO
Due to the addition of the conference center, there has been an increase of 90,000 advance 
room bookings for the upcoming 12 months at Harrah's Resort Atlantic City, compared to
 7,000 advance room bookings for the previous 12 months. The 97 confirmed meetings to date
 include Bradley Caldwell, Rita's Italian Ice and Meeting Professionals International's 2016
 World Education Congress.

The investment in the Harrah's Waterfront Conference Center comes at a time when there is
 significant demand for meetings facilities in the Northeast and no clear leader to serve the
 business traveler's needs. The 100,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility is now the largest
 conference-hotel complex from Baltimore to Boston, providing an attractive new option for the
 $280 billion national meetings industry that has a $16 billion foothold in the Northeast.
"The Waterfront Conference Center demonstrates our commitment to the revitalization of 
Atlantic City through major developments and investments in the booming meetings business," 
said Mark Frissora, President and CEO of Caesars Entertainment Corporation. "For Atlantic City,
 this is an opportunity to attract a new type of customer to the city and significantly increase
 hotel occupancy, as well as drive revenue for local restaurants, retail outlets and other businesses."

Designed by Friedmutter Group and located in Atlantic City's Marina District, the Harrah's
 Waterfront Conference Center can accommodate up to 5,000 attendees and has the flexibility
 to seamlessly convert from meetings, to banquets, to large assembly spaces. The 100,000 
square feet of flexible meetings space offers versatile area volume that can be broken down
 into 56 separate small meeting rooms with up to 300 different configurations – reception,
 banquet and pre-function space.

"We are excited to introduce Harrah's Resort Atlantic City Waterfront Conference Center as
 a major player in not only the Northeast, but the national meetings business," said Michael
 Massari, Senior Vice President of National Meetings and Events for Caesars Entertainment
 Corporation. "The state-of-the-art center is conveniently located within driving distance of
 one-third of the nation's population. Now, these convention goers can meet, eat and sleep
 all under one roof in a facility accompanied with dynamic hospitality offerings and amenities."
