 Conventions are important to any major city, bringing in millions of dollars each year. Thanks to the dynamic efforts of VisitDallas, Dallas is one of the nation's premier destinations for both big conventions and visitors.

More than 27 million people visit Dallas every year, spending $5.2 billion and generating a total economic impact of $8.8 billion. These travelers support our hotels, our attractions and our restaurants, and they support jobs. In total, tourism supports more than 65,000 jobs and offsets the tax burden for Dallas households.
