Reno Tahoe operates four entertainment venues in Reno, Nevada, namely the Reno-Sparks Convention Center, Reno Events Center, National Bowling Stadium and Reno-Sparks Livestock Events Center.
The venues host several sporting competitions, as well as national meetings, trade shows, and equestrian and livestock events.
Aramark Sports + Entertainment president and CEO Alison Birdwell said: “Reno Tahoe is a spectacular destination with endless, year-round entertainment opportunities.
“We are thrilled to be working with Reno Tahoe to deliver a food and beverage programme at each of its unique facilities that can enhance the guest experience and represent the culinary culture, heritage and diverse communities of the area.”
According to the agreement, Aramark Sports + Entertainment will be responsible for operating concessions and clubs as well as providing premium and catering services at the facilities.
Offering 600,000ft² of meeting space, 380,000ft² of exhibit space and 53 breakout rooms, the Reno-Sparks Convention Center is claimed to be the largest convention venue in the northern part of Nevada. The events it hosts include conventions, trade shows, corporate meetings, consumer shows, sporting events and competitions, and community events.
With the capacity to seat up to 7,000 people, the Reno Events Center hosts regional sporting events, national competitions and several family shows.
The National Bowling Stadium is dedicated to bowling competitions and draws regional and national bowling tournaments for 50 to 60,000 people. Serving as home to 88 championship lanes, it is a training and entertainment facility that also has a full bar with a lounge atmosphere. Furthermore, it acts as home to the satellite location of the International Bowling Museum and Hall of Fame.
Located on 43 acres close to the University of Nevada, the Reno-Sparks Livestock Events Center serves as the home of the Reno Rodeo and hosts several livestock and equestrian events as well as circuses, motocross and monster truck shows, conventions, and cultural events.
Reno Tahoe president and CEO Charles Harris said: “We are excited to welcome Aramark back to Reno Tahoe’s premier meetings and events facilities. Foodservice and customer service are two of the most critical amenities we provide to groups and events customers, and Aramark has a storied history of excelling in both.”
Last December, Aramark agreed to acquire a minority stake in Starr Restaurant Organization (Starr Restaurants).
