Small Group Baker Dinners are a highly curated experience that includes surveying and coordination of guest groups, reservation management, personal invitations and transportation (if needed).  Ticket pricing does NOT include the cost of the actual dinner.  The cost of each dinner will be split between the suppliers in attendance.  Bakers are hosted guests at small group dinners.

If multiple members of the same supplier company are attending Convention, each registered member is welcome to complete their own baker dinner survey.  Teams of suppliers will not be assigned to the same small group dinner.
