The chart is based on ticket sales to non-sporting events at each facility from January 1 through December 31, 2016.


“Boardwalk Hall is an exceptional venue for both performers and spectators.  We are proud that our facility continues to further Atlantic City’s reputation as the Entertainment Capital of the Jersey Shore,” said Chris Howard, Executive Director of the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority (CRDA).


“The Spectra team at Boardwalk Hall is fortunate to work with the many outstanding promoters and agencies that continue to see success in our venue in Atlantic City, and we thank them for their dedication to bringing shows and events to South Jersey,” said Fran Rodowicz, General Manager of Boardwalk Hall.  “Having two venues in one building helps us serve every audience, and we’re looking forward to building upon our recent successes.”
