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.
