The Atlantic City Convention Center to Implement ESCA's WIS Badge Program on January 1, 2019
12/6/2018
The Atlantic City Convention Center (ACCC) has always placed high value on security and safety, so it is in this spirit that we will continue to enhance our own practices. One area identified for improvement is our badging and credentialing.

Effective January 1, 2019, ACCC will implement the ESCA Exhibition Industry Worker Identification System requiring all workers be identified with either a WIS Badge or an ACCC issued credential. This new program allows enhanced overall security for licensees and guests by drastically reducing the number of credentials which makes the process of worker identification much simpler. The WIS Badge is an industry wide proven system. Each badge is reasonably priced, costing $18 for ESCA member full time employees and $25 for all others every three years.

"We understand this transition will require planning and time on everyone’s part, so we done our best to ensure an accommodating timeline with plenty of advanced notice," said Mitt Arnaudet, ESCA WIS, Director of Sales.

Here are key dates:

November 2018: Letter notifications sent to all contractor partners and exhibitor appointed contractors (EACs) after the official announcement

December 2018: Each worker who checks in at Security will be provided with informational handouts that contain WIS Badge information and frequently asked questions

January 1, 2019: All contractors, suppliers, vendors, and EACs who work in the facility must be identified with the WIS Badge or the credential issued by the ACCC.

We recommend all companies go on line to wis.esca.org for a complete overview of the process involved in registering for the badges. Please note each company approved to work at ACCC will need to name a person as WIS Administrator who will be responsible for registering their employees and ordering ID badges.

If additional information is needed on how to get started and/or how to register workers, please contact Mitt at mitt@esca.org or 972.971.1140.
