The Anaheim Convention Center (ACC) and Aramark, the ACC’s exclusive food and beverage and catering partner, today announced a partnership with Tapin2 on a new in-venue mobile app called ACC-EATS.

ACC-EATS allow convention exhibitors the ease of purchasing food and beverages directly rom their smart phones, with delivery directly to their trade show booths.

Tapin2 built ACC-EATS on an innovative and cutting edge mobile platform to expedite the ordering process for exhibitors who may need to place an order for express catering services or express meal services. The service options of ACC-EATS include catering for guests and executives in their meeting space, or express meal services from the local and fresh fare offered in the ACC’s retail food outlets.

“The Anaheim Convention Center continues to lead the industry in customer service and guest experience,” said Tom Morton, Executive Director of Convention, Sports and Entertainment for the city of Anaheim. “I am proud of the ACC-EATS partnership with Aramark and Tapin2. This exhibitor convenience opportunity is unprecedented in the convention center industry and we are excited to bring it to the marketplace.”

ACC-EATS was introduced to exhibitors at the Craft and Hobby Show this past January, and received an enthusiastic response. ACC-EATS was also successfully offered to 1,700 of NAMM’s exhibitors, and again during the UBM Advanced Manufacturing Expo/Conference. 

Within the past two months, Aramark also unveiled its new brand “Locally Rooted,” with fresh, local fare and chic packaging. Healthy and sustainability farmed food remain a popular and requested choice from guests attending conventions and events at the ACC. The launch of ACC-EATS has provided additional visibility for the new “Locally Rooted” farm fresh menu items offered in ACC’s concessions outlets.   

Food trucks may be mobile, but they aren’t going anywhere, since their popularity only seems to grow with each season. A New Jersey hotel is getting in on the fun! Along with over 18,000 sq. ft. of flexible meeting space, Embassy Suites by Hilton in Berkeley Heights, New Jersey, offers the Grain & Cane “Gastro Truck” as a fun option for a mid-meeting break or post-event dining option.

 

The family-focused, Wisconsin-based Great Wolf Lodge opened its first resort in Wisconsin Dells in 1997. Over the next two decades, it slowly expanded with more properties around the Midwest, moving into the Northeast, South, West and Canada. And this summer, the greater Chicago area will get its first resort from the brand.

 

The Los Angeles Tourism & Convention Board (L.A. Tourism) recently announced its record-setting economic impact for the previous year. Los Angeles County’s 48.5 million visitors spent an all-time high in 2017, generating a record $34.9 billion in total economic impact (including $22.7 billion spent directly in the L.A. economy).
