Atlantic City, NJ, April 17, 2019 – For 42 years, Las Vegas-based Jaki Baskow has been one of the top celebrity talent and corporate speakers brokers. She is now expanding Baskow Talent and Las Vegas Speakers Bureau to the East Coast, with representatives in Atlantic City that will include Peter Aaronson, president of production and Ann Manara, director of East Coast operations.
“Most of the groups we work with alternate their conferences between the East Coast and West Coast. With this in mind, we are expanding into Atlantic City to meet their needs in this iconic shore destination,” explains Baskow.
She feels the time is ideal as according to Meet AC, the marketing and sales branch of the Atlantic City Convention Center, the destination saw an increase in its convention and meetings bookings from 313,451 room nights in 2017 to 371,996 in 2018, with 238 conventions currently booked through 2022.
“My hallmarks, creativity, attention to detail and putting my clients first that have helped me achieve success in Las Vegas will be offered in Atlantic City as well,” says Baskow. “It’s time for this Jersey girl to have a Jersey outpost.”
Frequently referred to as the “Queen of Las Vegas,” Baskow’s story begins in 1976 when she left her home in New Jersey with $300 in her pocket determined to make it in Las Vegas and that’s exactly what she did.
Originally Baskow and Associates, Inc., a Las Vegas-based destination and event management company, in 2017, she sold that company to CSI DMC, Inc., keeping Baskow Talent and Las Vegas Speakers Bureau.
Just this month, Baskow was named one of the Top 100 Women of Influence in Las Vegas by My Vegas Magazine.
