We’re excited to be back at Destinations International’s Annual Convention next week in Dallas, Texas. And we’ve made sure there’s ample opportunity for us to connect. Catch us at our keynote session, “The Destination Organization of the Future: Prepared for What Lies Ahead,” during one of our four Flashes of Brilliance sessions on July 19 and July 20, in our Pinnacle Partner Room (Fair Park 2) or in the halls! Connecting with industry colleagues (and friends) and sharing knowledge with one another is truly one of our favorite parts of the convention experience.

We would be remiss if we didn’t also mention how excited we are to explore Dallas during the conference (we’re travel enthusiasts, what can we say?).

In keeping with the convention theme of "Reimagine" and kicking off “The Year of RE,” we did a little “REconnaissance” of our own and asked our Dallas-based team members to share some of their favorite places to help your team and ours experience the city like locals—and they did not disappoint! A special thank you to Vince Tatarian, Ryan Thompson, David Laffitte, Jordan Wollman and Vivian Overschmidt for sharing these Dallas gems with us.

We hope these recommendations inspire some incredible local adventures and memories. And be sure to let us know which ones you enjoyed when you see us at the conference!
