Allowing entry into its facility using ESCA National Worker Identification System (WIS) ID badges, Walter E Washington Convention Center (WEWCC) in Washington, D.C. became the 12th venue in the U.S. to incorporate the system.
Created by Exhibition Services and Contractors Association (ESCA), an association for firms engaged in providing services and materials for meetings, exhibitions and the hospitality industry, the WIS program allows badge holders to access 11 venues across the country.
The deadline for access into WEWCC without an ESCA badge is Feb.15.
WEWCC will be the sixth venue to implement ESCA’s new badge-scanning technology, following the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center; John B. Hynes Veterans Memorial Convention Center in Boston; the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta; the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston; and the Duke Energy Center in Cincinnati.
