Comments: Lunch Design/Conference Design

Comments

Funny that you mentioned the food, as a displaced San Franciscan I am perpetually disappointed with Pittsburgh’s culinary offerings. In general, I agree with you regarding your critic of the food at conferences.

From my recent experience planning the conference, I now understand why the food is so bad. Since we decided to hold the Emergence Conference at the convention center we were contractually obligated to use the convention center catering (Being perpetual self-reflective designers/students, Jim and I discussed the food and lodging as two weak points of the conference).

While we would have liked to offer better food/eating options we were constrained both financially and contractually. I wonder is why the catering at the convention centers sucks. Believe it or not, the lunch cost more than the room rental!!!

Thank you for haveing great information.

I agree, no city's food compares to San Francisco's.
