Meals

The conference hotel has two restaurants on site. A buffet lunch will be served in one of the restaurants for a special all inclusive price of $18.50 per person. In addition, a food concession with prices at or below $5.00 will be available exclusively for conference attendees during breakfast, lunch, dinner and breaks. For more information, click here.

A special banquet meal will be available prior to the Wednesday evening Banquet Session lectures. Because the banquet is self-sustaining, the meal cost is not included in the conference registration. For more information, ticket purchase and menu, click here.

***Conference attendees do not need to purchase tickets for the banquet meal in order to attend the Banquet Session lectures.***

Roommate Coordination

While we do not assign roommates, we do enable participants who need roommates to connect with each other. A Google spreadsheet has been created for people to find roommates. To view the spreadsheet, click here.

After signing into the roommate document, enter your information and scan the list to find potential roommates. Once you have made arrangements with a roommate, delete your information from the spreadsheet. Please note, this is a public spreadsheet. Do not post private information that you do not want made public.
