Event Types

When you apply for a license to organize a #DEN event, you'll be asked to choose an event type. #DEN event types are exactly what they sound like: different kinds of #DEN events. Every #DEN event falls under one of these categories, and while all events follow a very similar format, some different basics, rules and audiences apply to each type of event.

Standard event

This is the basic event type. It is open to the public and subject to all of the standard rules and applies to most events. Learn more


University event

Holding your event for your university? This event type is for those hosted at a college or university and organized by current university administration staff, faculty or students. Learn more


Community-Specific event

A community-specific event is a #DEN event catering you any sub-community (i.e. women, LGBT) where community-based issues are at the core of the event. This event may also be organized around the official annual community-focused conference (LGBT Pride, woman conferences, etc). Learn more

Internal event

This is for corporate/business, nonprofit organizations, government entities, and hospitals that want to organize an event under an institutional or organizational name. This event type and the naming exception it grants is approved only for internal, private, employees/supporter-only events. These events provide the framework for businesses to build employee morale & encourage a work-life balance through private, staff-only events built on #DEN's winning formula of unique dining experiences.  Learn more

Salon event

This is a small weekly or monthly event that keeps a #DEN community engaged between regularly scheduled #DEN events. In order to organize a Salon event, applicants must already have an existing standard license. Learn more
