Dallas, a city with over 1.3 million in population, is the 3rd largest city in Texas. While the city was developed due to the construction of major railroads, Dallas has continued to thrive with a healthy and diversified economy. Today Dallas is a hub for shopping, sports & entertainment and hosts the largest contiguous arts district in the U.S., including notable venues such as the Dallas Museum of Art; the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center; the Nasher Sculpture Center; the Trammell & Margaret Crow Collection of Asian Art and the Perot Museum of Nature and Science.

Downtown Dallas and neighboring areas like Deep Ellum, Cedars, and Bishop Arts District offer visitors local flair with a variety of restaurants, clubs, and a touch of history.

We hope conference attendees find time to travel around and take in our fantastic city!
