WE'VE GOT ANSWERS

Will VisitDallas Services increase the cost of my meeting?

There is no cost for accessing the expertise of a destination marketing organization (DMO). Visit Dallas is committed to making your Dallas event a success.

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

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

Does Visit Dallas only help large, citywide conventions?

Absolutely not! 85% of all meetings that we 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 Visit Dallas. 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.

How is Dallas staying safe for big groups and meetings?

Dallas leads the nation in safety and sanitation with the most Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC) STAR™ accredited hotels and venues.
