June 28 - July 1 ♦ Los Angeles, CA
Sheraton Gateway Hotel


All food offered at the conference is vegan (free of animal products). The cost of meals is NOT included with basic registration, however we do offer discounted meal bundles which are available for pre-purchase. Additional meal options will be available in the exhibit areas, and we offer free morning and evening snacks with basic registration. 

The hotel is preparing delicious vegan lunch and dinners, as well as a la carte breakfast options. In an effort to keep expenses down for attendees, we are subsidizing a portion of the meal costs if you pre-purchase them. We offer a complete bundle with registration, as well as lunch and dinner packages sold separately.

You have the option of pre-purchasing your meal bundle with registration. The full bundle consists of seven vegan meals: Thursday dinner, Friday lunch, Friday dinner, Saturday lunch, Saturday Awards Banquet dinner, Sunday lunch, and Sunday dinner. We strongly recommend that you pre-purchase your meals as pricing on site will be higher.
