Save on food

We know the cost of a convention can add up—so we're doing everything we can to save you money at AVMA Convention 2020. A savvy convention goer might not pay a dime to fuel up between sessions.


All full conference veterinary and veterinary technician registrants will receive a debit card that can be used in the Exhibit Hall Café during Exhibit Hall hours or wherever food is sold.

  • Friday – Kick off your convention at a sponsored lunch or fill up while showing school pride at your alma mater's alumni reception event.
  • Saturday – Don't miss breakfast as you enter the Keynote. After, use your debit card for lunch between visiting exhibitors. Join us for more food later that night at our evening events: Vet Tech Appreciation, Young Professionals, and Live Life, Love All!
  • Sunday & Monday – Attend a Sunrise CE session for breakfast, a Lunchtime Connection for lunch, and a Refresher Session for light snacks.
  • Don’t miss the best of San Diego cuisine Sunday night at this year’s Battle of the Bands – included in the price of admission!

Available throughout the center and in the Exhibit Hall.
