The place does not provide network, for example. if they dont manage to get network until then the conference is basicly screwed and they got all the money from us. not a good bargening position. > - Post-dinner snack: I don't think we should ask them for this - They > had offered us coffee service, but it was way too expensive (similar > to another meal).

I am confident we can come up with something better. are we allowed to have our own food on their grounds? this can be tricky in restaurants/hotels.
