What is the Wilmington Convention Center doing to keep meeting attendees safe?
The Wilmington Convention Center – the largest convention center on the North Carolina Coast – typically offers meeting capabilities from 20 to 2,000 people and a variety of spaces, along with sweeping riverfront views and lots of natural light that help brings the outdoors in. The convention center offers socially-distanced meeting capabilities for up to 330 people theater style, 385 people banquet style, and 70 8x10 exhibits, plus a variety of breakout spaces for up to 45 people theater style.
Outdoor networking spaces include an event lawn, the scenic two-mile Riverwalk, Port City Marina and an event pier. The experienced staff considers the needs of individual groups, tailoring packages to meet various budget constraints. Groups can work with SAVOR…Wilmington to customize menus.
Wilmington’s Convention District and intimate size of the convention center allow groups to become the biggest and only show in town, which is more important than ever as planners seek to integrate social distancing protocols into their meetings.
The Wilmington Convention Center is managed by ASM Global. The convention center has implemented cleaning protocols established by ASM Global called VenueShield. The VenueShield Environmental Hygiene Program works with over 400 products that include the recommended requirements for disinfecting various surfaces. Additionally, SERVPRO, the No. 1 choice in commercial cleaning and restoration services for more than 50 years, will serve as ASM Global’s primary partner in the implementation of the pro-active viral pathogen cleaning process. SAVOR…Wilmington has implemented service enhancements and additional cleaning and safety processes around food and beverage service. There are also comprehensive guidelines in place to help ensure attendee safety including reduced capacities, social distancing measures and safety protocols.
