Can you cater for my Dietary requirements?
We have provided some special dietary choices. In your registration process please ensure you choose the most appropriate for your needs. While we have created some choices we can not however cater for people with severe food allergies.
People with severe food allergies can react to tiny traces of certain food types inadvertently present in ingredients or on cooking utensils.
Our light meals, morning and afternoon teas are prepared by various caterers and each sources food and ingredients from many different suppliers. It is not feasible to test or control every ingredient and utensil used in preparing every meal to the level of being able to guarantee there will be no traces of an allergen substance present.
We also realise that some participants have allergies so severe they can react to the presence of tiny quantities of food in the air. It is not feasible to exclude these minute traces from the Event, since we cannot control what is brought at the Event by other participants or left behind by other Events. We therefore, advise that we are unable to provide allergen-free meals and/or an allergen-free environment at any of Events. We do have a selection of special meal options available, however please note that we are not able to cater for individual requests for specific food items to be included or excluded from any of our meals.
If you require absolute certainty of an allergen-free meal, you're welcome to bring your own meal to the Event. However, because of limited facilities, we are not able to heat meals that you bring with you, nor are we able to refrigerate your meal in case the container should become contaminated with other food in the event kitchen.
Where can I get a coffee?
You will be able to purchase a Coffee near the registration desk from a Coffee Van.
