Conference Registration Desk

The 2011 DirectEmployers Annual Meeting & Conference (DEAM11) registration desk is open each day during conference hours. Should you need assistance with anything, please do not hesitate to stop by and ask. DirectEmployers Association Staff and Crew are available to make your conference stay as productive and enjoyable as possible.

Name Badges

Conference attendees are required to display name badges during all DEAM11 functions. Name badges are color-coded to enhance your communication with others at DEAM11. Member badges have shapes at the bottom that correspond with their Membership Development Representative. If you have misplaced your name badge, please see the registration desk for a replacement.

You must have your name badge to get into all dining and social functions; your badge serves as your ticket.

Note: Drink tickets for Wednesday’s Networking Reception will be inside your badge.

Breakfast, Lunch & Reception

DirectEmployers Association will provide a continental breakfast for all attendees every morning beginning at 7:00 am. A sit-down lunch will be served on days 1 and 2. For those attending the Richard Petty Ride-Along Experience on day 3, a boxed lunch of your choice will be provided.


Photographers and videographers will be capturing images during the conference. The photos and video may be used by DirectEmployers Association for promotional materials, publications and websites managed by DirectEmployers. If you would prefer not to be photographed or filmed for these purposes, please notify the photographer, videographer or a DirectEmployers Association staff member.

We will once again be providing an attendance directory as well as a digital copy of your professional headshot. Please stop by the photo booth to have your photo taken.

Online Evaluation

After the 2011 Annual Meeting & Conference, you will receive an email with a link to the meeting and conference evaluation. Please take the time to complete the evaluation and ensure that DirectEmployers Association continues to provide the conference programming you and your colleagues expect from us.
