During the past four years, we have enriched our communities with tangible economic value of more than $39 billion – that’s an average of almost $10 billion each year of economic value we create for our stakeholders, enabling them to finance new initiatives, support personal and community objectives and invest in infrastructure, healthcare, education and more.
In 2015, 28% of the economic value we generated was distributed to our employees as payment for their contribution in the many and diverse roles they perform at our company. 43% of the value we created was distributed to the many vendors that help us create memorable experiences for our guests.

In September 2015, we officially opened our $126 million, 250,000 square foot (including 100,000 sq.ft. meeting space) Harrah’s Waterfront Conference Center in Atlantic City with a major celebration event attended by customers and local dignitaries. The Center is able to accommodate 5,000 guests, and is already attracting many customers who seek the best service and facilities available in a responsible business environment at a convenient location. The Center is another initiative of Caesars to add value – for our employees with the addition of thousands of jobs, and no less significantly, for Atlantic City.
“The Waterfront Conference Center demonstrates our commitment to the revitalization of Atlantic City through major developments and investments in the booming meetings business. 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.”
-Mark Frissora, President and CEO, CaesarsEntertainment Corporation
“The meetings and conventions industry is the direction Atlantic City needs to take to remain viable. Gaming revenues are still much lower than in the past, and the initial success of our Waterfront Conference Center shows the long term potential of the city in meeting convention and conference business. Traditionally, Atlantic City has not been not on the meeting planners of the world’s list of places to go, it was very difficult to get room blocks for large conventions. Now, we have the opportunity to bring great new business here to the city and the region.”
– Rick Mazer, Regional President and General Manager of Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City
