In addition to the pleasantly mild weather, part of the fun of attending an event in Dallas during the fall is a chance to see the ‘Boys in action. Whether you’re treating your attendees to a football game at AT&T Stadium, incorporating the sport into your meetings or planning something inspiring for those who would rather marvel at an art exhibit than a 50-yard pass, this season is one of the best times to gather in Dallas.
Catch a Game
The energy during a home game at AT&T Stadium is electric. Entice your attendees to kick off the week a little early with tickets to see the Dallas Cowboys up close, or rent a private suite for an intimate and exclusive group experience. No tickets? No problem. Dallas is filled with excellent spots to enjoy food and drink while watching the game on the big screen. Plan a pre-conference gathering at The Owners Box, a stylish sports bar inside the Omni Dallas Hotel that hosts a 16-foot screen and private game-watching tables. Or have your group join the locals at Frankie’s Downtown, a bi-level neighborhood bar with a lively atmosphere and plenty of game-day specials.
Lessons from the Gridiron
Booking a Dallas football legend as your keynote speaker can leave a lasting impression on your attendees. Athletes know first-hand how important teamwork, leadership and dedication to your craft can be, not to mention how to work well under pressure. There are plenty of players and coaches who call Dallas home, which means you’ll have access to world-class speakers who won’t have to travel far to add some inspiration to your event.
Game Day Pass
Dallas loves their Cowboys, but that’s not all you’ll find happening here in the fall. The city is also home to the largest contiguous urban arts district in the country, so there are plenty of museums and galleries to explore (many with free admission). Plan a trip to the vibrant Bishop Arts District or invite your attendees to sip the best margaritas in the city along the flavorful Margarita Mile. Even AT&T Stadium caters to the city’s creative vibe by offering an Art Tour, which highlights the stadium’s collection of museum-quality contemporary art.
