While we have made every effort to address special dietary needs, if you or one of your team members has a life-threatening food allergy, we encourage you to check with the food provider directly on-site and/or provide your own food to ensure your or your team member’s safety. As this is a large-scale event with many attendees, we encourage those with life-threatening food allergies to be vigilant in their safety on-site.
