Partners FAQ

Who attends the D6 Conference?

The D6 Conference is designed for church leaders, parents, and volunteers. We encourage church leaders and pastors to bring their key team members and volunteers to maximize the impact of a biblical discipleship strategy.

What is D6?

D6 refers to a foundational biblical passage concerning generational discipleship: Deuteronomy 6. Read more here.

What makes D6 different than any other family ministry conference?

Although it’s difficult to answer this because there are many really good events and conferences, one of the major distinctions is that D6 is a multi-model event. D6 is not about “our” model of ministry or family ministry, but rather, understanding and applying various ways church and home work together based on scriptural principles.

What are the dates of the D6 Conference?

September 20-22, 2017

Where is the D6 Conference?

In 2017, the D6 Conference will return to the Embassy Suites Conference Center in Frisco, TX. You can find hotel accommodations & travel information here.

What travel accommodations are available?

That’s up to you, but you’re welcome to check out what we suggest.

What is the purpose of the D6 Conference?

It is a conference about shaping our spiritual formation models to effectively pass faith along to the next generation. It is an event for church leadership and parents who want to change the statistics of students leaving the church after high school. Leaders, ministers, and leading parents who attend the conference will be challenged to help churches partner with parents to make disciples through the lens of Deuteronomy 6:4-9, the foundational passage for biblical parenting.

When is the application deadline?

Early exhibitor application deadline is May 31 and includes a discount, but we take additional applications until July 31.

How many workers can I bring to work in our booth?

Each booth comes with two passes. If extra passes are needed please check with our Exhibit Coordinator.

When can I start moving into my booth?

Booths will be available to exhibitors at noon on Wednesday, September 20 and booths will open at 4:00 that afternoon.

When are the exhibit areas opened or closed?

As always, the exhibit area will be accessible at all times during the day (during sessions, breaks, etc.), but our specified Exhibit Hours will be similar to the schedule below. A more detailed schedule will be provided closer to the event.

– Wednesday: 4 PM – 9:30 PM
– Thursday: All Breaks (8:30 AM; 11:00 AM; 2:30 PM); Resource Break (4:10 – 5:00 PM)
– Friday: All Breaks (8:00 AM; 10:25 AM)

Will food be provided for exhibitors?

Food will not be provided for exhibitors or attendees. During the extended lunch breaks it will be the responsibility of each exhibitor to get their lunch.

Suggestion: Go early or late during the lunch break to be back in the booth to connect with attendees as they return from their lunch breaks. This is peak conversation time.

Is it possible for exhibitors to attend any of the sessions to hear specific main stage speakers?

We encourage our exhibitors to slip into a session when possible. Keep in mind that we request your booth be staffed during peak times. It is always good, if possible, to have one person in your booth at all times while the exhibit area is open.

Can we sell our product directly from our booth?

We’re happy to announce the opportunity for partners/exhibitors to manage the sell of their own products at D6 for a Booth Sales Fee of $250. We only ask that products are appropriate for the D6 audience and that each vendor is responsible for sales tax or any other applicable taxes or fees. All products sold are subject to D6 approval.

If you do have a product which you think would be valuable for the attendees at our conference, please send it along to our store manager and we will be glad to consider it for sale in our Conference Store.

How do we go about being part of the breakout sessions as a speaker?

If you would like to be considered as a breakout speaker, please fill out the Speaker Request Form.

What is the Family Ministry Showcase?

The Family Ministry Showcase is an opportunity for D6 attendees to experience some of the best tools for family ministry and learn from the organizations who produce them.

For 3 hours (1:30 PM – 4:30 PM) on Wednesday before the opening Breakout and Main Stage sessions, select sponsors can use this time for a rotating presentation (every hours) as an opportunity to introduce and educate our attendees about how their products and services can benefit their family or the families they serve.

The Showcase will be absolutely free for attendees. For more information check out this document.

How do giveaways work at D6?

Think of giveaways at D6 as two separate categories.

Booth Giveaways are managed completely by you (a vendor) from your booth. How you collect names and distribute the prize is totally up to you.

Conference Giveaways are any item provided by you to D6 to give a way through our Exhibitor Signature Card. We collect the names and pull out the winners.

What is a Premium Location?

For the Embassy Suites, a premium space will be centrally located in the hallway leading into the D6 main sessions and will be designated on the map provided to you. These spaces are available to those who purchase the premium space fee during registration.

When can I expect to receive the decorator kit?

The decorator kit usually arrives 4-6 weeks before the start of the event. It contains information about ordering carpet, furniture, or anything else you may want for your booth space as well as other important information related to the partner experience at D6. You can expect this kit to be delivered to the email provided when you applied to be a D6 Conference partner.
