The southwestern region of the United States offers a unique experience unlike any other. While encompassing so much rich history and culture, travelers get to enjoy the comforts of posh hotels with the beautiful backdrop of a mountainous desert region. The Fairmont Scottsdale Princess helps embrace the true feeling of the southwest and has been chosen to play host to a bevy of events and activities at this year's annual meeting.

With the picturesque McDowell Mountains as the backdrop, the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess was a natural selection when choosing a venue for the annual meeting. The exterior pays tribute to Arizona's Spanish Colonial Heritage with an adobe style of building and has been awarded a AAA Five-Diamond rating. While DEAM12 may have brought you to Arizona, the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess has much to offer it's patrons. Not only are the rooms well above par, the hotels features five different restaurant options, a health club and spa as well as accommodations fit for family-friendly activities. For more information on the hotel, see the Fairmont's hotel fact sheet.


DirectEmployers Association is always mindful of ever-present budget constraints when booking out hotels for our annual meeting & conference. A block of rooms have been reserved at the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess for conference attendees who would like to stay in the same facility as the event. While you are there, make sure to visit the award-winning Willow Stream Spa (PDF).
