DC's Walter Washington Convention Center Launches New Food Ordering System




This week, Events DC, the official convention and sports authority for the District of Columbia, announced its partnership with Dasdak, a mobile ordering solution provider at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center

Dasdak is an on-demand mobile ordering platform that will provide Convention Center clients and their attendees with food and beverage delivery services directly to exhibitor booths. 

At large events and conferences, the wait time for concessions can be lengthy. The Dasdak mobile ordering platform looks to eliminate the wait by facilitating the delivery of food and beverage concessions directly to the exhibitor at their booth within minutes. This mobile technology enhances revenue for exhibitors and show managers. Exhibitors will now able to remain in their booths and gain critical time with customers, whereas show managers are now able to generate additional revenue through mobile engagement, providing a virtual mobile show before the event, and the sale of ad banners that run on the platform.

The long-term goal for Dasdak with Events DC is to be able to offer the service to not only exhibitor booths but to consumers within the Convention Center and to provide other services outside of food and beverage options – which could include additional menu items, catering options, meeting room temperature control and beyond.

The Walter E. Washington Convention Center is the first convention center in the country to launch a mobile ordering platform. In 2012, Events DC was the first to implement Dasdak mobile ordering capabilities at RFK Stadium. Centerplate|NBSE, the Walter E. Washington Convention Center’s food and beverage caterer, will work collaboratively with Dasdak to execute the concession orders and deliver food to exhibitor booths. 

Satellite 2015, a international satellite industry exhibition and conference, will be the first event to roll out the mobile ordering services at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center through March 19 with 350 exhibiting companies and 12,500 attendees.
