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.   

Remote working has become mainstream with the continued presence of COVID-19. While many people have welcomed the new normal of working from home, others miss the separation of spaces, as many corporate offices have remained closed since March. Without the daily obligation to go into the office, professionals have the ability to travel more freely. Hotels across the country are creating “work from hotel” deals–a play on “work from home”–so people can explore new places while still fitting in their 9 to 5.  

 

Doctors, nurses, grocery store employees and more were essential to sustaining the continued stay-at-home orders that helped fight the spread of COVID-19. Such workers put their health at risk for the benefit of society, and Nakoma Resort and the Lost Sierra Chamber of Commerce want to recognize them for their efforts through the “Send Your Heroes” campaign.   

 

Due to COVID-19, non-essential travel was, or has been, banned for months. Long anticipated trips and in-person gatherings were canceled and people have adjusted to the new normal: staying at home and meeting over Zoom. However, states have been slowly lifting restrictions, and non-essential travel will soon be happening across the country again. However, some may not be as comfortable with the thought of traveling as they were before the pandemic.
