Hosting a Social Event at the Conference

Your firm is welcome to host a social event on Sunday evening, March 19 (beginning after 7:30 p.m.), or Monday evening, March 22 (beginning after 6:00 p.m., depending upon room assignment at the Grand Hyatt). No affiliated event (including private dinners) may be held in conflict with any TEI function. Because TEI is committed to maintaining the professional focus and integrity of the conference, we ask to be informed in advance of all sponsor-hosted events. If you would like your event included in a list compiled by TEI and included in each conference registrant’s packet, please let us know by March 3.

Email details of your event to dgaffney@tei.org in order to be included on this list. You may place one sign in the hotel (location subject to hotel restrictions), and you may also invite all conference registrants via an invitation in their conference tote bags. See the Sponsorship Enhancements flyer under the SPONSORS tab at my17.teionline.org. You may also arrange for a “door drop” for all hotel guests attending the conference. Contact Janet Davis at the Grand Hyatt, janet.w.davis@hyatt.com to make arrangements for social events. Door drops may be arranged by using the form under the SPONSORS tab. The hotel charges on a per-item basis for door drops.

There is no longer a banquet at the Midyear Conference on Tuesday. It has been replaced by a reception from 6:30-9:00 p.m. Sponsors are welcome to invite members out to dinner on Tuesday evening, after 7:30 p.m. Large social events are not permitted.

Conference attendance list and permission to send email.

Following the conference, you will receive an attendance list in Excel format, which will include last-minute and onsite registrants, in order to send one mass email to participants following the conference. The email must be sent by April 21. This deadline is firm, so you should plan accordingly. There will be no exceptions to this deadline.
