  1. Here's an article I found that details the plans that Aramark has with regards to food at the D.C. Convention Center and also renovations that are to take place: https://www.bizjournals.com/baltimore/news/2019/04/09/d-c-convention-center-preps-for-exterior-reno-new.html Some of the exterior changes to take place: Planters and public art for the exterior of the convention center, more retail space, more seating and a rooftop terrace. Some of the food plans that Aramark has: Implementing a locally-focused food program being dubbed "D.C. Eats", convention center to have a "pop-up restaurant" with a rotation of "local chefs", new restaurant offerings, creation of a food hall, expanding concession areas in Hall B, install self-checkouts in Hall B, incorporate local food and restaurant brands. Some of the interior changes listed are: main lobby renovation, install mobile ordering tech in the main lobby, and "more food and dining-specific lobby renovations":
  2. The Baltimore Convention Center expansion is actually progressing, a Maryland General Assembly bill has successfully been passed out of the General Assembly for the Governor's consideration. This bill would require that planning and design for the expansion and renovation of the Baltimore Convention Center to begin in Fiscal Year 2020 which begins on July 1, 2019 for Maryland government purposes, it also enlarges the legally defined boundaries of the convention center to include the area that contains the Sheraton Inner Harbor hotel: https://www.bizjournals.com/baltimore/news/2019/04/09/baltimore-ocean-city-convention-center-expansions.html
  3. The website for the Baltimore Convention Center has gotten a total overhaul and redesign, I was browsing through it and saw a mention to Otakon with the Baltimore Convention Center classifying Otakon as a "high profile event": https://www.bccenter.org/p/about/ourstaff/318
  4. I'm hoping Aramark has significantly improved between the time Otakon had experiences with Aramark when Otakon was in Baltimore until now. I do not have good memories with Aramark food, a while back when Otakon was in Baltimore and Aramark was the concessions and catering contractor for the Baltimore Convention Center, I purchased food from an Aramark food place in the Baltimore Convention Center, minutes later, I was running to restrooms, throwing up, thought "Never again, I will not eat any Aramark food." Then, one year, literally days before Otakon, a health inspection occurred of all Aramark food places in the BCC, I saw Aramark at the BCC listed as being closed by the health inspector due to improper food storage temps, improper food handling, employees not wearing hairnets/gloves, rodent infestation, insect infestation and an expired license. Ever since i saw that closure report until Centerplate took over, I never ate at the BCC. I had no bad experiences eating Centerplate food, both at the BCC and at the D.C. Convention Center, so hopefully, food quality will be pretty good under Aramark.
  5. The Washington Business Journal is reporting that Aramark is replacing Centerplate as the convention center's food and beverage provider effective April 1, contract is for 10 years: https://www.bizjournals.com/washington/news/2019/01/17/washington-convention-center-picks-new-concessions.html
