Continued for 2023: Food and Beverage Service at Your Booth

Back by popular demand, exhibitors can serve food and beverages at your EDUCAUSE 2023 booth to help drive traffic to you!

Working with Savor, the exclusive provider of McCormick Place Convention Center, you can customize your own refreshment plan to be served at your booth during exhibit hall hours.* Choose from a large selection of items that accommodate breakfast, lunch, or specialty treats/carts, and select the times you want to serve them.

EDUCAUSE is not hosting a lunch event, so this is a prime opportunity to attract hungry attendees to you.

Not sure where to begin? Here are a couple of suggestions to get started:

  • Provide lunch for attendees at your exhibit.
    A lunch break is scheduled for 90 minutes on Tuesday and Wednesday (noon–1:30 p.m. CT, October 10 and 11). Be the place for a lunch meeting or casual drop-in to stimulate engagement with you and your team.
  • Provide specialty food and beverages for a limited time or all day.
    You can supply treats, hors d'oeuvres, drinks, and more at the time(s) of your choosing during exhibit hall hours.
