Meet the Speakers Dinner at Tom Ham’s Lighthouse
Tom Ham’s Lighthouse opened for business in 1971. An actual functioning lighthouse, known as Beacon #9 on any USCG Nautical Map, was incorporated into the design. The result is one of San Diego’s best known architectural landmarks. Besides the Lighthouse, Tom Ham’s is also famous for its eye-catching vistas of the San Diego Bay, Coronado Bridge and San Diego skyline. Today, the restaurant is operated by a second generation of Hams who continue the tradition of fine dining and exceptional service that represents a culmination of the interests and visions of the Californian whose name it bears.
This dinner offers a great opportunity to meet the speakers and colleagues in a relaxed and informal atmosphere. Tickets cost $US 50 when ordered in advance with registration and include a three course menu with wine, beer and soft drinks.
Places are limited so please book early via the online registration system.
