Food right outside the convention can be expensive. There are more affordable options inside the casino, but that is quite a walk. We usually pack a lunch to take with us each day it is more affordable, more convenient, and prevents us from missing guests we would like to see.

If not staying at the venue, it is easiest to park around the back of the Rio right outside the entrance to the convention center.
