As home to Thomas Edison’s home and lab, the New Jersey Gateway Region is truly The Birthplace of Innovation. Motivate your team to achieve acts of brilliance in its diverse meeting facilities and one-of-a-kind attractions including the Liberty Science Center and New Jersey Botanical Gardens and more.

With the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island in full view – and easily accessible – the Gateway Region is rich in history and culture. Your group can visit Empty Sky, New Jersey’s official 9/11 memorial, as well as the Wars of America Statue created by the same artist that designed Mount Rushmore – or take in a show at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center.

The state's diner culture reigns supreme in the Gateway Region, which boasts the most diners in the world. "Disco fries" are a casual fare innovation and must-try specialty for meeting attendees before their return home.
