Unmatched for business and meetings

As the Southwest’s leading business and financial center, Dallas is one of the top convention cities in the country. The city offers meeting planners an unparalleled array of amenities: 70,000 hotel rooms, flexible meeting space, a warm climate, service-oriented staff, a central location near two major airports offering more domestic nonstop flights than any other U.S. city, and much more.

Dallas improved on its status as a desirable meetings and conventions destination in 2011 with the highly anticipated opening of the Omni Dallas Hotel. The Omni added 1,001 rooms and 110,000 square feet of event space on site, as well as convenient sky-bridge access to the Dallas Convention Center (DCC), ushering in a new era for Dallas meetings.

The DCC is undergoing renovations of its own. Designed by HKS Inc. and constructed by Lee Lewis in collaboration with the city of Dallas, the DCC offers more than one million square feet of exhibit space and is home to the world’s largest column-free exhibit hall. Along with its central location, the DCC also offers more than 100 meeting rooms, a 1,750- seat theater, a 9,800-seat arena, and two ballrooms. Renovations will be completed to the D area of the center this year, adding a new ballroom and a glassed-overhang multimedia conference room. The A lobby, concourse, and AB lobby also will receive new floor and wall treatments, adding more color and excitement to the DCC.
