Open for Business: Safety Updates and Resources

Small events are BIG business in Dallas!

JUNE 2017

According to the American Express "2017 Global Meetings & Events Forecast," small meetings are poised for significant growth.  While planners anticipate fewer meetings for several meeting types, data suggests that the typically smaller internal, advisory, and training meetings will actually increase in size and frequency.

Tom Faust, vice president of sales for Omni Hotels & Resorts, says 65 percent of the chain's meeting business now comes from groups that book 50 or fewer room nights at peak.  "And it's clear that the small meetings market will continue to grow."

Great things come in small packages – and Dallas, TX is the ideal destination for your next small meeting or event!
