What are food options at the Town and Country for the event? I saw the VIP option, but didn't see the awards ceremony dinner as an option like was available during the last time I attended the NHC in 2015. Was that cancelled for this year?

If nothing else, I can always go to Fashion Valley for their food court.


Also if any vendors want to offer sweet deals on 220V electric brewing systems, I am ready and willing to pay and would pick up at the event.

There hasn't been an awards ceremony banquet for years. I kinda miss it, but there ya go. There's a mall behind T&C with lots of food options.  There are a couple restaurants on the T&C grounds, but they fill up pretty quick.  At least that was the was it was a few years ago.  They've done a lot of remodeling so it may have changed.  Just go around and talk to vendors at the trade show.

Thank you for the update. As you can tell, it's been a number of years since I went to the conference. I tried the mall the last time and liked the food options, so that seems like the best bet from the info you have provided.

I booked at the secondary location, Best Western, if anyone is still looking to split a room.

Anyone break into the venue yet and find out where 2024 is going to be held?

Not one of those I know has a clue. I'm judging 2nd round Wednesday morning so I might see the poster then.

I always say the same thing about Boston, but it would be too expensive.  Providence was close enough I guess.

I'm hoping they give somewhere like Nashville a second attempt since they had to go virtual for 2020.

After the uproar about CBC being held there, it seems unlikely

I think CBC was the consolation prize for HBC being canceled.

so the location for HBC 2024 has not been announced yet?  Probably not a good sign :-(
