Major convenience, world-class attractions and dynamic meeting spaces make Fort Worth a natural fit for events of all kinds. Working with event planners from every path of the industry, I see day to day how Fort Worth hosts an array of successful meetings and conventions. Why Meet in Fort Worth? Let us count the ways:
1. Downtown Walkability
Eleven hotels are within walking distance of the Fort Worth Convention Center. Multiple fine (and casual) dining spots, boutique shops and world-class entertainment venues line the streets along the way, including 35 sprawling blocks of development in the heart of downtown known as Sundance Square.
2. Unique Blend of Culture and Western Heritage
Enjoy unparalleled Western heritage in the Stockyards National Historic District as the world's only twice-daily cattle drive passes you by or peruse one of Fort Worth's five internationally recognized museums in the Cultural District.
3. DFW International Airport
With 200+ domestic and 56+ international direct flights daily, DFW International Airport makes traveling to Fort Worth a breeze. All domestic flights can reach DFW in less than 4 hours of flight time, and Fort Worth is a quick 17-mile trek from the airport.
4. Fort Worth Convention Center
Offering more than 250,000 square feet of exhibit space, nearly 60,000 square feet of flexible meeting space, and an impressive 28,160 square-foot ballroom, the Convention Center can accommodate events of all sizes and varieties. Examples include: NCAA Women's Gymnastics Championships (2015/2016), Women's Junior Olympic National Championships (2016), Premier Designs Annual Rally (2002-), IGARRS (International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium) and many more.
