Convention Center hallConvention goers will soon be able to freely connect to the internet across every inch of the Walter E. Washington Convention Center.

Events DC, the District’s “official convention and sports authority,” announced the expansion today.

“This expanded service, available this spring, will enable attendees visiting the Convention Center a level of complimentary Wi-Fi service to complete routine tasks such as checking email, utilizing social media tools and navigating online platforms and applications, hassle-free while enriching the guest experience,” the Events DC press release reads. “This enhanced Wi-Fi capability will also allow attendees the ability to get online with ease without depleting their personal mobile data.”

Though the center launched its free wi-fi service in 2011, wireless internet wasn’t freely available in areas like meeting rooms and exhibit halls, said Events DC spokeswoman Ashley Forrester.
