Centerplate Powers Orange County Convention Center To Top National Ranking

ORLANDO, Fla., May 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Centerplate, the largest hospitality partner to North America's premier sports stadiums, convention centers and entertainment venues, is proud to announce that our partner venue, the Orange County Convention Center (OCCC) in Orlando, has been ranked the top convention center in the United States by Business Review USA .

In naming the OCCC tops among hundreds of convention centers nation-wide, Business Review USA specifically cited the center's incredible guest experience. Editors at the Business Review focused on the OCCC's ability to offer convention goers unmatched amenities, including Centerplate's three full-service restaurants and eight food courts. Also on the amenity list: remote airline check-in and on-site massage services. 

"Nothing makes us happier than seeing our clients succeed, and to see the Orange County Convention Center named the top convention venue in the country leaves us thrilled to be part of this incredible success," says Douglas Conner of Centerplate. "Knowing that our client is being honored like this means that the Centerplate team here in Orlando is fulfilling our mission to delight our guests, and clients."

Working in partnership with the Orange County Convention Center, Centerplate's team has also undertaken a number of significant new projects including the implementation of new retail menu concepts that are based upon sustainability; the renovation of the West building kitchen facilities and new catering menu selections. Keeping pace with the OCCC's commitment to be an eco-friendly facility, Centerplate is also installing equipment to reduce waste that would otherwise be destined for a landfill.

The Orange County Convention Center was also singled out for its significant economic impact on the surrounding community, which provides tax savings to each Orange County household every year.

"We come to work every day with the sole focus of helping our clients achieve their goals and objectives, so this recognition means a great deal to the entire Centerplate team," says Conner.
