01/17/2019 | 10:50am EST

WASHINGTON, Jan. 17, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- As the official convention and sports authority for the District of Columbia, Events DC today announced the selection of Aramark as the new exclusive food and beverage partner at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, following a comprehensive bid process.  The newly approved contract by Events DC's Board of Directors will mark a proposed ten-year agreement with five one-year options, that will begin April 1, 2019. 

With a long-standing history of operating diverse venues across the globe and an already established presence in Washington, DC, Aramark will enter the partnership with a forward-thinking understanding of Events DC as an organization and brand, as well as Events DC clients and their customer base.  Aramark currently provides cleaning services at the Walter E.

Aramark is also the official concessionaire at DC's notable Capital One Arena, operated by Monumental Sports & Entertainment. 

"Aramark has made a distinct mark not only in Washington, DC but globally across the convention industry and within many notable sports and entertainment venues, by delivering first-class experiences with a creative and innovative approach.  We are thrilled to announce our new partnership – giving us the ability to expand upon and further develop an already existing relationship," said Gregory A. O'Dell, President and Chief Executive Officer of Events DC.  "The team at Aramark shares our forward-thinking vision and commitment to raising the bar of services delivered – as well as the value of investing in the Walter E. Washington Convention Center and the right people to bring it all to life." 

"Events DC is excited to welcome Aramark as the Walter E. Washington Convention Center's new food and beverage provider," said Samuel Thomas, Events DC's Senior Vice President and General Manager at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. "Aramark has built an excellent reputation working with both local partners and industry-recognized meeting planners for providing an unmatched level of service and expertise, resulting in extraordinary event experiences. Together, we look forward to implementing a unified approach at enhancing food and beverage operations and increased local and innovative offerings at the Convention Center."

Centerplate/NBSE, the Walter E. Washington Convention Center's current exclusive food and beverage provider has committed to providing a seamless transition until their contract ends on March 31, 2019.
