ANAHEIM, Calif., Sept. 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Smart City Networks, the country's leading telecommunications provider for the hospitality and convention industry, recently joined leaders from the City of Anaheim in celebrating the grand opening of the Anaheim Convention Center's ACC North.

Smart City Networks renewed its contract with the Anaheim Convention Center in 2014. Part of the commitment included Smart City playing a key role in expansion efforts. The Smart City team worked in tandem with the design team to lay out an optimized wireless design to allow for elite technology integration into the design of the facility. The brand new, state of the art network can accommodate high profile, high demand shows and meetings.

The Anaheim network installation continues Smart City's history as the premier designer of wireless technologies in the convention industry in the United States. This is the 17th major convention facility just in the last four years for which Smart City has developed a high-density wireless design plan and marks the 31st facility expansion project since 1987.

"Anaheim has been a valued partner of Smart City for nearly 30 years," said Mark Haley, President of Smart City Networks. "We want to congratulate the Anaheim team on their new world-class facility.  The dense network and advanced technology incorporated into the new building set a new standard in the industry."

ACC North, which officially opened for business on September 26, 2017, is the convention center's seventh major expansion.  The expansion added 200,000 square feet of flexible space and secures the ACC's position as the largest convention center on the West Coast.

"ACC North promises to elevate the Anaheim Convention Center to new heights," said Tom Morton, Executive Director of the Anaheim Convention Center. "Our new facility is the new gold standard for flexible design in meeting, ballroom and exhibit space with state of the art technology."

In the months following the grand opening, the new Anaheim Convention Center will host large events such as the Best Buy Retail Holiday Leadership Meeting, BlizzCon 2017, and the American Heart Association 2017 Scientific Sessions.
