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.

I enjoyed the actors from the show. The Vendors room was small and the photo ops were already sold out before the event. There wasn't much to due during the event until the actors were onstage. Thank goodness the Rio has options.
