Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Who should attend the Anti-Convention?

We are Chef's Roll, so everything we do is geared towards Chefs. We want professional Chefs that are looking to be inspired, learn something fresh, make amazing connections in the industry and have a damn good time to come to our first Anti-Convention.


What’s your refund policy?

We understand things come up, especially in the Chef world. Let us know 30 days before the event if you can no longer make it and we will refund 100% of your paid registration fee.

Do I have to stay at one of the recommended hotels?

No. There are a ton of hotel options within a 5 mile radius of the venue and also Airbnbs. Mission Valley has some of the most affordable hotels in the area and it is a 10 minute drive to the venue.

What should I wear?

The weather is mild in San Diego (Looking like a high of 77 and a low of 61) and we're a casual town. Jeans and a button down are our go to. It can get cool at night, so bring a light jacket or hoodie. If you are signed up for Monday night's Jeremiah Tower tribute dinner you might want to bring something a little fancier as it is going to be a caviar and champagne kind of night! During the day be sure to have sun protection as everything is taking place outside. If you want a portrait taken by famed photographer Josue Castro in your chef coat, we recommend bringing it with you - we will have a ton of props on hand!

I'm interested in sponsoring this event. How do I do that?

Email and we'll be in touch.

Are all meals included?

Daytime passes include breakfast, lunch and a ton of samples during the presentations, as well as happy hour cocktails and our zero proof bar. A full pass also includes dinner both nights at our "A Night Under the Stars" Jeremiah Tower tribute dinner and our Porkfest.
