Editorial: Seaport reservations

Champions of a massive expansion of the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center have long sold the public on the claim that Boston is losing out on big events because of a lack of adequate meeting space.

 

It seems just as likely that the Hub may lose out because conventioneers at the existing facility have nowhere to rest their weary heads.

"The champion of this department was Levy Restaurants, an event and catering company associated with Hynes Convention Center. Levy’s cupcakes were basically beyond words. I’ve never tasted a better crafted cupcake in my entire 26 year-cupcake-eating-life."

MCCA director says BCEC must be good neighbor as it expands

The Massachusetts Convention Center Authority will pay MassDOT $21 million to leave a key parcel of land on D Street as it prepares to re-imagine the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center’s future.

 

“Instead of building a building that cuts off and kills a neighborhood, we want to build something that’s integrated in the neighborhood,” said David Gibbons, the author­ity’s executive director. “The testing lab is kind of the linchpin in that, it’s right in the middle.”

 

Although the MCCA will demolish MassDOT’s testing lab later this year, Gibbons said the authority doesn’t have any specific plans for the parcel. The MCCA will include the land as part of a new master plan process aimed at guiding how the BCEC expands in the coming years.

“There’s nothing more rewarding to me than seeing a city-kid on a boat for the first time — smiling, confident, and amazed after catching their first fish. To keep our program running, we rely on the generosity and support of programs like the MCCA’s Community Partnership Grants. Their commitment to community programs, particularly youth programs, makes our small operation and all those smiles possible.”

Editorial: Driven by choices

Beacon Hill is considering legislation that would ban Uber and Lyft from picking up passengers at Logan Airport and the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center. But the agency that runs the Seaport convention mecca — to its credit — isn’t waiting to see whether this bit of naked protectionism for taxi companies wins the day.


The Massachusetts Convention Center Authority plans to designate specific pickup spots for passengers who choose to summon a ride on their smartphones, rather than waiting in line at the cab stand.

"The BCEC is one of the few convention centers that offers free Wi-Fi service throughout the facility. It eliminates the need to negotiate this "must-have" service, results in considerable savings and satisfied attendees!
