Hampton, VA – Hampton Roads Convention Center [1] (HRCC), a top-tier
destination for meetings, conferences, trade shows, athletic events, and
social gatherings managed by ASM Global is excited to announce the
appointment of SAVOR [2] as its exclusive food and beverage partner,
securing Hampton’s status as a premier events destination.

SAVOR is an industry leader in food service, with a sterling reputation
and innovative approach to menu development. With a presence in over 350
venues worldwide, SAVOR creates a one-of-a-kind experience in each new
location. Their goal is simple: bring people together around a great
meal. Finding a unique vision for Hampton was key in the selection
process, and both HRCC and SAVOR are proud to build something that truly
speaks to this mission.  

“Right from the start, SAVOR has seamlessly understood our need to
provide high-quality services to our clients and attendees,” said Eric
Nealy, HRCC general manager. “From diverse local concessionaires to
the aroma of freshly baked pastries, operating under the SAVOR flag
means exceeding expectations, and as general manager, I’m so
appreciative of our team effort and what we will achieve moving

Lisa Marie Henry, director of food and beverage, applauds the shared
commitment to innovation. “Our way forward is all about enhancing the
client experience with fresh, innovative ways of presenting our
product,” said Henry. “We’ve all had to rethink food and event
services, so why not take the opportunity to continue to evolve into
something even more special than before? There’s no reason why an
efficiently run conference can’t have an elevated level of food &
beverage quality, and we’re gratified to know we share that goal with

Not keen to stop at the culinary offerings alone, the partnership also
reinvigorates the HRCC’s presence at the center of a tight-knit
community. The space around HRCC’s table includes new opportunities
for local businesses and purveyors to showcase their offerings through
menu features and even Small, Women-owned, and Minority-owned Business
(SWaM) certification education. Together they will offer an authentic
Mid-Atlantic dining experience shown through Hampton’s vibrant lens.

“I think I speak for all of us when I say it all comes down to staying
true to ourselves, and SAVOR gets that,” said Jay Altman, executive
chef. “Our goal is to ensure that our guests are continually wowed by
the time they spend with us, so we’re always looking to keep an eye on
what’s new in the food world while honoring our commitment to quality
and our Hampton roots. That’s our flavor.”
