Harrah’s Resort offers a state-of-the-art Convention Center that could provide an excellent venue for your conferences and other engagements in Atlantic City. It is unfortunate however that the audio/visual staff at Harrah’s are non-union workers, employed by a contractor called Encore. Therefore, we encourage you to hire an outside union vendor to service your event before booking. The facility itself was constructed union and the majority of Harrah’s workers, with the exception of the dealers, are union.
Prior to the New Jersey State AFL-CIO 29th Constitutional Convention that was held at Harrah’s, we were contacted by IATSE which informed us that the audio/visual team was non-union. The State Federation was prepared to move its convention elsewhere, until a compromise was reached with management, allowing us to bring in a union vendor to coordinate and administer all of our audio/visual needs for the Convention.
Based on our positive experience, we highly recommend Tri-State Staging, Inc. whose employees are members of IATSE Local 917. We could not have been more pleased with the service and professionalism offered by our union workers at this South Jersey based company.
We thank you for your attention to this matter and your help in the success of the Convention. Once again, if you plan to use the new convention center, make sure to hire a union audio/visual vendor. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our office.
