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.

There is a shuttle between the Rio and Bally's and another shuttle between Harrah's and Bally's. These shuttles run from 10am - 1am so if you want to see a speaker at the convention earlier than that, you have to take a cab or figure out the bus system.

The buffet is great but cheaper options are grabbing a sandwich, chips, fruit etc. at Starbucks or the Rio hotel store near the casino. Also, there's a TGIF across the street at Gold Coast Casino that has good prices.

I wore a sweater inside because the air-conditioning makes the convention rooms cold..

You can bring your own food and drinks. We brought a lunch each day. There is even a lunch room.

Best if you stay over night at the Hotel, but you can stay across the street at a reduced rate too.
