Next Event: May 16-17, 2017, at the Thermador Experience Center in Irvine, CA
NOTE: This will be the ONLY time Designer MBA is offered in 2017!

What time do you start?
The program runs 8am to 5pm on the first day, and 8:30am to 5pm on the second day.

Is there a discount at the hotel for my room?
Not for the 2017 event. There are many hotels close to the Thermador headquarters, so you can choose to stay where you want. Most people will stay at the Westin South Coast Plaza in Costa Mesa, CA.

Will there be transportation from hotels?
Because people like to stay at hotels where they can get points or loyalty rewards, there won’t be any event transportation. However, most hotels provide rides, and taxis/Ubers to Thermador’s headquarters are very low-cost.

How can I find out more about the event details?
As soon as you purchase the course, you’ll receive an email with all the event details included, as well as an email address if you need assistance.


Cancellation Policy – We have a NO REFUNDS policy.  In the event of an emergency that prevents your attendance, we will extend a credit that can be applied to a future Tobi Fairley event or used on other Tobi Fairley products.
