    FOOD Information!!

    Lunch Break update: The venue typically has a concession stand open on our floor. This year however, they are not sure they will be able to have one available. Many places will deliver food to the convention center as well. I highly recommend you bring an insulated Lunch bag, this will make it even easier for you.

    We will not be scheduling a lunch break. If you have a medical condition please see me and we will make arrangements for you.


    See you there!!
