Dan Gallagher, STS Director of Sports Sales
Daniel Gallagher is the current Director of Sports Sales for the Atlantic City Sports Commission (ACSC). The Atlantic City Sports Commission was officially formed on January 13, 2015, as a 501 (c)(3) organization with the support of Visit Atlantic City and the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority (CRDA) to attract sporting events, conventions, and competitions to Atlantic City.
Since the formation of the Commission, Gallagher has assisted in landing premier sporting events such as the TEAMS Conference & Expo, Ironman 70.3, Red Bull Global Rallycross, Pro Watercross, AVP Beach Volleyball, U.S. Futsal, Matchroom Pool’s US Open Pool Championship, and most recently Jimmy Johnson’s Atlantic City “Quest for the Ring” Championship Fishing Week (JJFISHWEEKAC). Also, in only a few short years, Gallagher has played a big role in generating more than 456,730 room nights and more than $580 million dollars in economic impact to Atlantic City.
Gallagher continues to play an integral role in the sports market by staying involved in national and global industry trends. His love for the sports industry has yielded national recognition as 40 under 40 by Connect Meetings, features in sports-related publications, and educational accreditation as a Sports Tourism Strategist (STS).
