The Meals Committee is planning to fulfill our reputation for outstanding hospitality!
We hope you are as excited to join us in Iowa as we are to have you! The Meals Committee is planning to fulfill our reputation for outstanding hospitality!
First, our conference hotels do not provide breakfast, so thanks to generous donations from Fairlife Milk and Quaker/Pepsico you will receive a couple bottles of shelf-stable milk and snack bars made right here in Iowa in your registration bag for consumption in your room.
We are also providing a snack bar at 7:30 AM every morning with fresh fruit, granola bars, Krispie treats, and trail mix to help fill the morning tummy grumbles prior to morning sessions. Our mid-morning breaks will include coffee, hot tea and juice along with some sweet treats. If you need coffee before then, there is a coffee shop on the east end of the Event Center as well as in several of the hotels.
Both the snack bar and breaks will be in the Exhibit Hall on level 2 of the Iowa Event Center on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, and in the Grand Concourse (level 3) on Wednesday. You will also receive a nice Grizzly mug made right here in Iowa in your gift bag. Remember to carry it with you and refill from the water stations in the Grand Concourse (level 3) of the Event Center or the water fountains near the restrooms.
For those of you with dietary restrictions, our venues will do their best to accommodate your needs. We have shared your information with them and they are preparing alternative menus. You should receive alternative meal tickets when you pic up your registration packet.
One last tip on keeping yourself refreshed, is to bring your credit card since both our venues have gone to a cashless policy, so our cash bars are really ‘cashless’ bars!
