Catering update: No dinner, yes lunch!

30 June 2017

PyCon Australia is just five weeks away now, and we are putting the final touches on everything to try and create an awesome experience for all our attendees.

In past years there has been a Saturday night dinner. As those who have bought tickets already would have noticed, there is no option for that in this year's registration form. Based on feedback from last year, we decided that a catered lunch would be more valuable to attendees than the formally organised dinner.

Catering provided at the conference is as follows:
  • Thursday 3rd August (tutorials) - morning tea and afternoon tea. Tea/coffee station available during the day. Lunch not provided
  • Friday 4th August (Specialist Tracks) - morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea. Tea/coffee station available during the day.
  • Saturday 5th August (main conference + Django Girls workshop) - morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea. Tea/coffee station available during the day.
  • Sunday 6th August (main conference) - morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea. Tea/coffee station available during the day
  • Monday 7th August (sprints) - lunch. Tea/coffee station available during the day.
  • Tuesday 8th August (sprints) - Tea/coffee station available during the day. Lunch not provided

Food will also be provided for any children in the conference childcare on Friday/Saturday/Sunday.

In the attendee profile form there is a field for "Food allergies, intolerances, or dietary restrictions". Please ensure you have completed this correctly so that we can cater for you. Don't put in a 'joke' answer here, it just makes you look clueless and inconsiderate.

If you want to take a break and grab your own lunch, there are many options near the main venue MCEC (Thursday-Sunday).  See Food Options from the 2016 wiki. The Sprints (Monday-Tuesday) venue is almost finalised and will be announced soon, but the options we are considering have plenty of food options nearby too.

If you have any questions about food or anything else, be sure to get in touch. Otherwise, grab your ticket and we look forward to welcoming you in August!
