EDUCAUSE, a nonprofit association and the foremost community of IT leaders and professionals committed to advancing higher education, just hosted their annual meeting "Advancing the Next Generation of Learning" at the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel, Feb. 4 - 6, 2013. Our client noted on-site that attendees were thrilled with the lunch menus, particularly the vegan dishes: "Please pass along to your chef the positive feedback we have received from our attendees (and myself from our staff) on how delicious lunch was today. One attendee was so appreciative [of the vegan options] and said he wanted to ask for a second plate, it was so good!" You are all very welcome!
Catering to all dietary needs - vegan options aplenty!
