Investing in the Hynes: Introducing our Newly Renovated, State-Of-The-Art Kitchen

Posted by Molly Dunn on Jul 29, 2015 3:28:00 PM

The Hynes Convention Center is the best-located convention facility in the United States, positioned right in the heart of Boston’s bustling Back Bay neighborhood. In order to capitalize on this, we have been working on a strategic repositioning of the Hynes, which includes forward-thinking initiatives to take advantage of the rich history, ideal location, and distinctiveness of the facility. These repositioning efforts will include physical improvements to the Hynes spaces, focusing on international appeal and customizable public spaces, as well as upgraded state-of-the-art technology

In order to kick-off these efforts, we started with a $12 million, four-phase kitchen modernization and expansion project, which is just about complete. In fact, Levy Restaurants, our award-winning food services provider, was recently able to occupy the new kitchen and they couldn’t be happier with their improved cooking space!

The redeveloped kitchen includes a 1,000 square-foot expansion, doubling our cold storage capacity, a new beverage cooling storage system, and new high capacity coffee and hot water production stations, among other improvements. The renovation will allow us to serve our guests more efficiently while also improving upon our already fantastic quality of food. We can now offer an even better experience to clients, not to mention the expansion will give our hard-working chefs a bit of extra breathing room and prep space!

There was one particularly challenging aspect to the kitchen renovation project - we still had many events to host (and feed) at the Hynes as this major construction project was taking place, and we had no intention of delivering anything less than the award-winning food services we are known for, despite the renovation. Fennick McCredie Architecture along with Crabtree & McGrath food service consultants assessed our current use of kitchen space and developed a plan to renovate and redesign it for increased productivity and better quality. They also assisted Levy in keeping the kitchen running full steam throughout construction.

With a lot of hard work put in over the last two years of this project, we are all very excited to begin using our new Hynes kitchen to better serve our guests.

Fall is a great time of the year to walk around Boston and enjoy the foliage. Did you know that Boston is called America’s Walking City? It was given this name because of its compact and high density nature, which makes walking an effective and popular mode of transit.

In fact, Boston has the highest percentage of walkers who walk to work. According to The Atlantic, US Census data shows that 15 percent of people working in Boston prefer a stroll to the office. Even though crowded platforms, buses and subways are standard operating procedure during morning and evening rush hours, the percentage of workers commuting by foot in Boston is higher than in any other city. 

Boston is among the top 3 walkable cities in the U.S. according to Walk Score, which has ranked the 3,000 largest cities in the U.S., Canada, and Australia. Walk Score believes that walkable neighborhoods with access to public transit, better commutes, and proximity to people and places are the key to a happier, healthier and more sustainable lifestyle.

Boston is a compact city with easy access to restaurants, shops and landmarks from convention hotels and from our two convention centers: the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center and the Hynes Convention Center. Your conference attendees will enjoy a rich variety of things to do and see without having to travel great distances.

There are many free walks and trails throughout the city of Boston, a great way to discover Boston’s historic heritage.

Posted by Claire Dollander on Feb 20, 2014 12:49:00 PM

For the fourth year running, the Lonely Planet’s travel experts have scoured the States to help their readers pick the best destinations. Boston was rated as one of the top 10 places in the U.S. that should be on travelers’ radars this year!

Lonely Planet is one of the largest travel guide book publishers in the world with over 100 million books printed in nine different languages. Lonely Planet enables curious travelers to experience the world and get to the heart of a place. It has offices in Melbourne, London and Oakland, with over 450 employees and over 200 authors.

Here is a sample of what Lonely Planet suggests when visiting Boston: “Year-round, the past is very much alive here, follow in America’s revolutionary founders’ footsteps on the Freedom Trail, stopping to imbibe a bit of history at the Bell in Hand Tavern, the oldest tavern in the USA. Once summer hits, the city’s usual festivities are in full swing: all sorts of festivals abound, beer gardens and restaurant patios overflow, and a thriving arts and entertainment scene keep Bostonians content as the humidity yields to stunning, vibrantly colored autumn. A favorite place to stay is the Omni Parker House, a historic hotel overlooking the Freedom Trail that has employed Malcolm X and Ho Chi Minh, and accommodated Charles Dickens and JFK.”

Boston is indeed America's most historic and storied city in the U.S. It offers an incomparable mix of history, culture, entertainment and sports, which has a huge appeal.

2014 Record Breaking Year for Conventions in Boston!

Posted by Claire Dollander on Jan 9, 2014 12:21:00 PM

The Massachusetts Convention Center Authority (MCCA) is predicted to break two major records in 2014, hosting events generating more hotel room nights and more economic impact than ever before in the city’s history, according to MCCA Executive Director James E. Rooney. The MCCA owns and operates the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center (BCEC) and the Hynes Convention Center.

More than 750,000 attendees at roughly 250 events at the BCEC and Hynes are projected to spend 629,000 nights in hotels and drum up $680 million in economic activity, breaking the 2006 record of 616,000 room nights and the 2012 record of $656 million.

“Breaking these records in 2014 is more proof that Boston has arrived as a premiere convention destination in the world,” said Rooney.

Among the biggest events for next year: the American College of Rheumatology’s November convention with 38,358 room nights, the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery’s April gathering with 35,475 room nights, and the International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plans with 33,450 rooms nights.

The year kicks off with a skating rink built at the BCEC for the Prudential US Figure Skating Championships followed by the Professional Convention Management Association (PCMA) Jan. 12-15, a group representing more than 6,000 meeting industry leaders and decision makers from around the world. In addition, 2014 marks the debut of two Boston events that will be co-owned by the MCCA—the Culinary Intelligence Summit and the Advanced Audio & Applications Exchange.

Annual events in Boston continue to thrive in 2014, including the amazing gaming conference PAX East, which sold out in November. Other annual events include Yankee Dental Congress, the International Boston Seafood Show, Anime Boston, and New England Grows.

Continuing our effort to attract multicultural conventions, Boston will also see a significant number of diversity-based events in 2014, including Sigma Pi Phi Beat Boule, the National Association of Black Journalists, and the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Eastern Regional Conference.

International rotating events coming to Boston this year include the World Congress on Biomechanics, The World Congress on Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis, the Society for Worldwide Interbank Telecommunications and the International Society for Computational Biology. These knowledge-based events bring thought leaders and scientists from around the world in Boston.

“The record 2014 for hotel room nights in Boston and all of our other robust activity points to the growing need to expand our capacity in the meetings and convention industry and secure our future role.“ said Michelle A. Shell, chair of the MCCA Board of Directors. “With the hopeful passage of legislation next year to expand the BCEC and the push to build more hotel space around the BCEC, we are on firm ground to break even more records in the coming years.”

Find out more about the BCEC expansion plans by visiting the Expansion Plan page of our website.

Gaze at the Stars
Pick out your favorite constellation at the Coit Observatory at Boston University, which offers free stargazing Wednesdays after 7:30 p.m. during the fall and winter and 8:30 p.m. during the spring and summer. Observe the night sky through telescopes and binoculars and learn some astronomy.
