Secretary of State Designated Major Events Coordinator

On Tuesday, Governor Murphy signed P.L. 2019, c. 198 which designates the Secretary of State as the Major Event Coordinator. The Secretary of State will provide a consolidated one-stop centralized location of information and assistance for persons planning to host major events that will increase tourism to New Jersey by providing assistance with permits, licensing and compliance with State laws and regulations. The new law defines “major event” as events that “increase tourism to New Jersey and generate significant, immediate or long-term economic, social and cultural benefits to the State, attract significant numbers of participants and spectators, or have a national profile outside of the region in which it is being run, and generate significant media coverage in markets of interest for tourism.” This new law took effect on July 23, 2019.
