WE'VE GOT ANSWERS

Will VisitDallas Services increase the cost of my meeting?

There is no cost when using a convention and visitors bureau (CVB)! We are a non-profit that is commited to making your Dallas event a success.

I'm using a National Sales Office (NSO), so I don't need a CVB, right?

A NSO cares most about the brand you choose, but here at VisitDallas, we work with many different partners and brands to help you find the best solution for your needs.

Does VisitDallas only help citywide conventions?

Absolutely not! 85% of all meetings that CVBs assist are not citywide conventions. From meetings small to big, we have you covered.

Can't my host hotel(s) just provide me with all the information and resources I need?

Most hotels are actually partners of VisitDallas. We work hand-in-hand with them, which means we're the best source for information and services both inside and outside of the hotel.
