Wayne Hasenbalg, president & CEO of the NJ Sports & Exposition Authority (NJSEA) was the featured speaker at the event, "The Super Bowl's Impact & Its Opportunities for New Jersey."
"New Jersey is fortunate to have attracted several 'big' events to the state this year including WWE's WrestleMania, the return of the Miss America Pageant, and the Super Bowl, a proposed Formula One Grand Prix of America race, and the U.S. Special Olympic Games all in 2014," said Hasenbalg.
One can only look at the projected $550 million economic impact to the region to understand just how important these events can be in generating opportunities for small and large businesses, suppliers of products and services and the tourism hospitality industry," Hasenbalg added.
"We are excited about the Super Bowl coming to New Jersey in February, and even more enthused about all of activity taking place here in the weeks leading up to the big game," said Marc Graham, 2013-2014 president of IOREBA and senior director of Cushman & Wakefield of NJ. "Hosting the big game, as reiterated by Mr. Hasenbalg, will create many business opportunities, and we look forward to the positive results generated within the real estate community," he continued.

"I do expect the signage will come down," said Wayne Hasenbalg, president and chief executive officer of the New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority.
Since 2012, when the agreement expired, there have been no further payments from Izod, according to Hasenbalg. A separate deal with internet phone company Vonage Holdings, which was paying more than $1 million to put its name on the concourse of the Izod Center, also ran out of string when the Nets left, initially for the Prudential Center in Newark and then to their new home at the Barclay's Center in Brooklyn.
"All sponsorship deals have expired," said Hasenbalg.
Hasenbalg said the authority was moving on its own to take it down. While it was not something they felt had needed to be dealt with immediately, he said it was now part of "hundreds of other close-out tasks" as the arena prepares to shut its doors.
"It made no sense to take it down before Super Bowl, or before we knew what we were going to do with the building," he said.

"On behalf of all of our area partners, we are excited to have SummerSlam come to IZOD Center in 2015," said Wayne Hasenbalg, President and CEO of the New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority.

"It's not easy to move stuff," explained Wayne Hasenbalg, president and chief executive officer of the New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority, which operates the state-owned Izod Center. "There are negotiations going on back and forth, but it's looking like some events will stay here through March 31. We're trying to work it all out."
According to Hasenbalg, the Izod Center, which opened in 1981 with a series of sold-old shows by Bruce Springsteen, was on its way to losing $8.5 million this year.
Under the terms of the agreement, though, Pru would get the revenues for any extended dates after January, said Hasenbalg.
Representatives from both the sports authority and the Prudential Center have been talking with promoters, Hasenbalg said.
"That was a big one," conceded Hasenbalg of SummerSlam.
The sudden shutdown of the Izod arena, which came with no advance warning and was voted on by the sports authority's commissioners just a day after they were alerted to it in a vaguely worded resolution on a public agenda, was in the works for months, according to Hasenbalg. He said they stopped booking events about a month and a half ago, as it became clear that a shutdown was possible.
While money was the main culprit, he said concerns over construction work at the adjacent American Dream entertainment complex also factored into the decision. The former Xanadu project is being expanded with an indoor water park and theme park.
"There is a very real issue with construction," he said.
Money, though, was the death knell, Hasenbalg said.
"We were burning through $700,000 a month," he pointed out.
It wasn't so much the loss of the sports teams, though, as the new competing arenas in Newark and Brooklyn that sent the Izod Center over the edge, said Hasenbalg.
"If you look at the number of concerts, we had 18 to 24 before Pru and Barclays," he said.
