“These events with IMG are a dynamic first round of exciting entertainment, which achieves our goal of generating multi-night stays and regional exposure year-round with best-in-class sports and entertainment content for Atlantic City,” said Chris Howard, CRDA’s Executive Director.
“The IMG team is a global leader in creating and executing extraordinary events and this partnership with IMG is already paying dividends for Atlantic City. It is great to have PBR back in our market, to revitalize the college basketball presence at Boardwalk Hall, and to launch a spectacular new experience with Bear Grylls.
