Events DC, the official convention and sports authority for Washington, DC, announced American Pest as an official partner of the authority. Through this three-year partnership, American Pest will promote their brand image at Entertainment & Sports Arena and Events DC community events.

“The health and safety of our staff and customers is a top priority for Events DC as we deliver world-class events, and American Pest has been supporting our efforts to provide a clean, safe and healthy environment at our venues,” said Events DC President and CEO Angie M. Gates. “The Entertainment & Sports Arena is a centerpiece for the revitalization of the historic St. Elizabeths community in Ward 8, and our official partnership with American Pest will support the growth and vibrancy of the Congress Heights neighborhood.”

For the past three years, Events DC has maintained a WELL Health-Safety Rating focused on operational and maintenance protocols in a post-pandemic space. The authority also received a GBAC Star Accreditation for top-notch cleaning, disinfection and infection prevention strategies in our day-to-day operations. American Pest currently provides year-round pest control services at several Events DC venues, including the Entertainment & Sports Arena, the DC Armory and the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. Through this official partnership American Pest will integrate their brand at Entertainment & Sports Arena, while contributing to the evolution of the St. Elizabeths community.

“American Pest has been providing pest control services for the greater Washington, DC community for almost 100 years,” said Kevin Poland, President of American Pest. “Our new partnership with Events DC is all about our joint commitment to improving the lives of our neighbors and friends. The 400-plus local employees of American Pest are excited to see our name alongside Events DC in this dynamic new venue and neighborhood.”

The multi-year partnership was developed by Events DC and OVG Global Partnerships, the sponsorship and naming rights division of Oak View Group that connects world-class brands with world-class live entertainment properties.
