Vegan Meals


All food offered at the conference is vegan (free of animal products). The cost of meals is not included with registration, however we do offer free morning and evening snacks.



The Daily Grill, a restaurant located inside the Westin LAX Hotel, is preparing a vegan menu for AR2014 attendees. They will offer buffet meals in the Trattoria for breakfast, lunch, and dinner at $13, $15, and $17 respectively.

View the menu here.

The Exhibt Hall will also offer vegan snack options including vegan doughnuts from Donut Friend, vegan tacos from X - Marks the Spot, and falafel from Ihsan's Falafel. And let's not forget the Southern Fried Vegan food truck which will be located out on the Terrace!

Additionally, the conference will offer free vegan snacks in the morning before sessions begin and at our post-plenary evening networking receptions. Special thanks to our generous food sponsors!
