Stay Connected: Smart City Networks August Highlights

Smart City Networks continues to make tremendous strides in the event services world. August was a time for significant developments and celebrations that we are excited to share with you! From contract extensions to building celebrations to industry events, this month has been nothing short of remarkable. Let’s dive into the highlights right now!

New Contract Extensions

Kansas City: A 1-Year Extension

Our partnership with the City of Kansas City, MO, at the Kansas City Convention and Entertainment Facilities has been extended for another year. This extension is a testament to the exceptional work we’ve been doing together. Not only does it signify our commitment to enhancing the financial landscape of the city, but it also underscores our dedication to elevating the quality of services provided to the customers who utilize these venues.

Orlando: A 5-Year Extension

Equally exciting is the announcement of a 5-year contract extension with one of our long-standing partners, the Orange County Convention Center. This extension solidifies a nearly 30-year partnership, highlighting our unwavering commitment to providing cutting-edge products and services tailored to the meetings and events industry.

Smart City Networks has always been at the forefront of innovation, and with these extensions, we can continue our journey of financial improvement and service quality enhancement for these wonderful cities. We are deeply honored that the Orange County Convention Center and the Kansas City Convention and Entertainment Facilities have entrusted us with the crucial task of delivering advanced technology services to their valued customers.

These extensions stand as a clear demonstration of the remarkable partnerships we’ve forged and the bright future that lies ahead as we continue to innovate and excel in our field. Thank you for your continued support and trust in Smart City Networks.

40th Anniversary OCCC

Smart City Networks congratulates the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL, on celebrating its 40th anniversary. Since its opening in 1983, OCCC has hosted some of the world’s largest and most influential events. Smart City has been fortunate to be part of this success story for the past 20 years, and we eagerly anticipate the next chapter in our partnership.

We recently celebrated this milestone with an incredible evening, joined by our Smart City team in Orlando and OCCC representatives.

Industry Events

Smart City Sponsors Connect Marketplace in Minneapolis

Smart City Networks was the prime sponsor for the recent Connect Marketplace in Minneapolis. Two of our executive team members, Dennis O’Gara and Chris Pendleton, had the privilege of supporting our client, Meet Minneapolis. During the event, they engaged with the Minneapolis Convention Center team, including Executive Director Jeff Johnson and Associate Director of Sales Deb Taylor.

The event also provided an opportunity to reconnect with many of our industry friends and association clients, including Juan Lopez, the National Sales & Marketing Manager for the Tampa Convention Center.

Celebrating VenueConnect 2023

Smart City Networks celebrated #VC23 at VenueConnect, an event that allowed us to connect and network with fellow industry professionals. We are grateful to the International Association of Venue Managers for providing us with the opportunity to meet with leaders from across the nation.

One of the highlights of the event was reconnecting with Courtney Dyer, former General Manager at our partnered convention center in Virginia Beach, who was honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award.

Be a Hotdogger!

And most importantly, we wanted to shoutout a special celebrity interaction. Our General Manager at the Viriginia Beach Convention Center, Ryan McCart got a photo with the iconic Oscar Meyer Frankmobile! Not pictured here is Ryan trying to take a bite out of the truck a few seconds later…

We thank our team for a very special August and now we look ahead to September! To Stay Connected to Smart City Networks, check out a few of our past Monthly Reviews here!
