Visit Dallas is thrilled to announce the approval of a 2.5 million-square-foot convention center expansion with 800,000 square-foot of exhibit space and 300,000 square-foot of a breakout, including 160,000 square feet of ballroom. 

“This news is a game-changer for Dallas and will put our city on the map as the preeminent large-city convention and meeting destination in the nation,” said Craig Davis, Visit Dallas President & CEO.

The center will not only be impressive on the inside, but the outdoor event area will also feature terraces with incredible views of downtown Dallas and the Trinity River. Plus, there will be a sky bridge connecting the convention center with neighboring districts, like the Cedars and the planned Rail District, creating a walkable entertainment experience that includes restaurants, retail, and lodging options.

Speaking of lodging, we also have exciting developments there as well, with over 5,000 new rooms currently under construction in Dallas. So, in addition to our impressive selection of boutique hotels and large convention hotels already booked, here are a few you can look forward to visiting later this year:
