Registration FAQs

How do I know if I’m a member?

If your organization is a member or if you have purchased an individual membership, you can register at the member rate. If you aren’t sure if your company or organization is a DMEC member, enter your work email address in our online form or contact us at 800.789.3632, ext. 101 or info@dmec.org.

My organization is unable to get a check cut by the early bird deadline. Can I still register at the early bird rate?

Yes. You must register online or complete the hard copy registration form on or before the deadline to qualify for early bird rates even if the check will not arrive until after that date. Your registration will be pending until payment is received and processed. All check payments for early bird registration must be received no later than 30 days following the completion of your registration.

Can I register for just one day of the conference?

There is no one-day registration rate available.

I am presenting a session. Do I have to register?

Everyone, including presenters, attending the conference must register. The coordinator for each session, also known as the session contact, will receive instructions via email for registering their session’s speakers.

How will I know if I am registered?

When your registration is received and processed, you will receive an email indicating that you completed the registration process. Registration confirmation emails will be sent to the email address entered on your online registration form. If you believe that you have completed the registration steps and do not receive an email within 24 hours, contact info@dmec.org.

Is it possible to substitute a new person for someone who is already registered?

Yes. Contact us at 800.789.3632, ext. 119 or info@dmec.org with both the name of the person being replaced and the new person’s name and contact information, including email address and the email confirmation number of the record of the person being replaced (if available).

Will I receive a badge and conference materials in the mail?

No. You will pick up your badge and other conference information at the onsite DMEC registration desk at the Hilton Austin. The registration desk will be open prior to our Monday preconference sessions and evening welcome reception, opening again at least one hour prior to the start of the opening session on Tuesday. Registration desk hours are included in your final program and in a reminder email sent shortly before the conference.

What forms of payment do you accept?

Conference registration fees can be paid by credit card (Visa, MasterCard, or American Express) or check. Purchase orders must be pre-authorized by sending your request to info@dmec.org.
