Membership Benefits


By securing your #DEN Membership you gain access to member-only pages & will have priority, once Tier II registration opens, to register & attend DEN events in your city for the Member and ONE guest. Membership also allows you to invite non-members to become members and register during Tier III of event registration for your specific city. For those who have secured a general #DEN Membership, once your city is announced, your membership will be transferred to that city. #DEN National Network - Any member who attends THREE (3) DEN Events within one calendar year will be invited to become a Member of the #DEN National Network. This allows the member to register and attend any and all DEN events, with a guest throughout, the United States. #DEN Global Network (coming soon) - Any member who attends FIVE (5) DEN Events within one calendar year will be invited to become a Member of the #DEN National Network. This allows the member to register and attend any and all DEN events, with a guest throughout, the World. Please Note: Membership DOES NOT guarantee admission to #DEN Events. Event registration is required to attend a #DEN event and is on on a first-come, first-served basis.




What are the Ticket Transaction & Annual Membership Fees for?


The Membership and Transaction Fee is used to cover the inherent costs of training, support, and technical services to all the host-organizers worldwide to enable them to organize the event, as offered by Dîner en Noir Corporate. These services allow us to preserve and convey the concept’s values, to sustain our corporate standards by regrouping them within a single network and, to develop technical tools. #DEN Membership offers members a number of online services that will grow in the coming months/years. Dîner en Noir is working on updating its platforms so that all participants of a Dîner en Noir event become members. In addition, this annual fee, will also allow members to register for as many Dîner en Noir events in their city & around the world as they wish (once they are invited to our #DEN National & Global Networks). Membership is REQUIRED to attend and register for all Diner en Noir events




Membership Policy


An active #DEN Membership is required to register and attend any and all Dîner en Noir events. Each city-specific membership plan allows for event registration and attendance for that specific city/event. Purchasing a Membership IS NOT a registration of an event and does not guarantee the member registration for an event. Event registrations are on a first-come, first-serve basis and the member must register to attend the event. For cities where specific #DEN Membership Plans has not been announced, our general #DEN - Membership may be selected. Once that city is announced, the member will have up to 14 days to contact us at info@dinerenoir.com to have their #DEN Membership switched to that city. Failure to do so within the required deadline will result in a required purchase of a new membership. Please note: if a price differential exists between the two memberships, a switch CANNOT be made. Membership plans must be renewed each calendar year, and are valid from the time of purchase until December 31, of the same year, regardless of the expiration date of the paid plan. Exceptions to this rule will occur if there was no #DEN event for the city during the year of purchase. Membership Plans CAN NOT be transferred or reassigned. If you've purchased two memberships for the same city under different email addresses, we, unfortunately, can't assist with you rectifying the issue and any money spent is forfeited. PLEASE NOTE: An immediate termination of membership, rejection and/or ejection from an event, forfeiture of membership and all event registration-related costs and a ban on future membership and/or attending any future Dîner en Noir event may occur if member is found to be in breach of Dîner en Noir’s Website Terms, Conditions of Use and Policies, violates any rules or policies to include:
