Worker Identification System

The WIS program is currently being utilized in the following venues across the U.S. and the WIS badge is required for entry into the exhibition halls, after clearing normal event security:

  • Atlantic City Convention Center
  • Baltimore Convention Center
  • Boston Convention & Exhibition Center
  • Cashman Center - Las Vegas
  • Colorado Convention Center - Denver
  • Duke Energy Convention Center - Cincinnati
  • Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center - Nashville

  • Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center - Dallas
  • Las Vegas Convention Center

  • Overland Park Convention Center - Kansas City
  • Pennsylvania Convention Center -  Philadelphia
  • Phoenix Convention Center
  • San Diego Convention Center
  • Salt Palace Convention Center - Salt Lake City
  • Walter E Washington Convention Center - WDC 

As additional venues implement the WIS program we will blast out email notifications to all registered company WIS administrators and feature the venues in the monthly ESCA newsletter. New venues will then be added to the above listing so that you can reference the list 24/7.

NOTE:  It is important to note that the WIS badge does not grant the bearer access to any events in any venues. The badge merely verifies that the individual is approved to enter the venue, if they are being employed by a contractor working on the specific event. Security for specific events is still in force and all workers must be cleared to enter the events via the normal security requirements in effect for the specific events.  

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT ALL EMPLOYERS INFORM THEIR EMPLOYEES OF EVENT SECURITY REGULATIONS.
