The Friday Luncheon Buffet, Saturday night Dinner Banquet and Sunday Breakfast are included in your conference fee!
Meal tickets showing your menu choices for the banquet will be in your registration packet. If you are planning to have a non-attendee join you for the luncheon and/or banquet, there is a fee for that person. Be sure to contact us in advance to make the necessary arrangements.
The hotel breakfast buffet is $18 (or you can order a la carte from the menu). You may bring your food to the Ballroom for the Breakfast Roundtables. (Don't forget that Sunday's continental breakfast buffet is on us!)
Coffee and Tea will be served on Friday at the Opening Session and luncheon, at the Saturday morning session and at the dinner banquet, and at the Sunday morning session. We're charged $90/gallon(!), so if you need more than that, we suggest you bring a thermos for the coffee you'll find in your hotel room, or purchase a cuppa from the bar.
The on-site Steinway Specialty Restaurant and Empire Lounge have excellent food, and there is also a restaurant across the street at the LaGuardia Plaza Hotel. Remember, however, that hotel food prices are traditionally on the high side, so please budget accordingly.
As an alternative, you can share a taxi to the nearby Buccaneer Diner or other local eateries during the Friday dinner break and Saturday lunch break.
You may also wish to get a group together for dinner in Manhattan or a nearby restaurant (see the Concierge for suggestions). For the most economical taxi ride, we recommend you take the hotel shuttle to the airport and catch a yellow cab from there.
