Each EAST Program is able to purchase up to four (4) additional tickets for banquet guests. Schools with both an EAST Program and EAST Core are able to purchase up to eight (8) tickets.

Last Minute Additions: There may be a limited number of tickets available for purchase at Conference Wednesday, March 18. We will try to accommodate additional attendees by placing them at overflow tables within your assigned section. If all tables in your section are full, attendees will be seated in a different section. See details below about seating sections.

Special Dietary Needs

The formal dinner consists of salad, poultry entrée, carbohydrate and a vegetable, followed by dessert. Tea, water and coffee are served. Please contact EAST Events by Wednesday, March 4 if participants from your school require a vegetarian meal or have special dietary needs.

Banquet Seating

The Banquet Hall will be divided into four sections. Each section will be assigned a specific entrance door, seating time and colored banquet ticket. Elementary students will enter at 5:25 PM at Group 4 (Orange) door, regardless of ticket color.

Doors will open at the times specified below. Be prepared for the time to fluctuate 5 to 10 minutes in either direction.

Elementary - 5:25 PM [Use Group 4 (Orange) door]
Group 1 (Green) & Group 4 (Orange) - 5:30 PM
Group 2 (Yellow) & Group 3 (Blue) - 5:45 PM

Note: The white tables on the seating chart are reserved for VIPs.

For your convenience, the lobby doors will have roped-off sections to help facilitate group lines. Each table will have a section identifier matching the colored banquet ticket. Program participants and guests will not have assigned tables or seats but will be required to sit in their assigned section according to ticket color. Ushers will help with seating.

Choosing Your Section

If you prefer to sit in the same section with a neighboring EAST program, please contact EAST Events by February 18 and we will try to accommodate the request.
