Events DC, the official convention and sports authority for the District of Columbia, has announced expanded complimentary Wi-Fi services across the 2.3 million-square-foot Walter E. Washington Convention Center. Events DC will work with Smart City, its exclusive technology services partner, to enhance its Wi-Fi service.

The expanded service is expected to roll out this spring, and will offer a complimentary network that enables attendees to complete routine tasks such as checking email and social media, as well as navigating online platforms and applications. For users with more advanced connectivity needs, which require more than normal speed or greater bandwidth, upgraded Wi-Fi options will still be available for purchase. 

The Walter E. Washington Convention Center is located in the heart of Washington, DC and offers space for events of up to 42,000 attendees. The Convention Center includes a range of mixed-use exhibit spaces, including 198,000 square feet of flexible meeting space, 77 break-out rooms, and the largest ballroom in the Mid-Atlantic region.

Events DC also said it remains focused on additional long-term technology enhancements within the Convention Center. These enhancements include the placement of additional digital signage, interactive wayfinding kiosks, and digital transit displays. The supplemental digital improvements will create a more enriching experience for clients and their attendees when visiting the Center. Respective additions are expected to be unveiled throughout 2016.
