Omni Hotel Dallas
Recently, the Omni Dallas Hotel hosted a four-day party for the top meeting planners from all over the country. The theme of the event was “Definitely Dallas!” due to Omni’s dedication to make each of their hotels look authentic to its location.
On Friday, the first full day of the excitement-packed weekend, meeting planners chose to visit Cowboy’s Stadium, Southfork Ranch with J.R. Ewing himself, the famous Larry Hagman, or Texas Motor Speedway. Later that evening, planners attended “Dallas Double Take” event put on by DCVB where planners were encouraged by Mayor Rawlings, Larry Hagman and DCVB President Phillip Jones to take a second look at Dallas and the incredible attractions the city has to offer.
Saturday brought more activities to experience in the busy Dallas area. Meeting planners visited the Old American Golf course, beautiful Dallas Arboretum and the Sixth Floor Museum. Other planners opted for the “What’s new in Dallas?” tour where they saw the Perot Museum of Nature and Science, expected to open in 2013, and the new Margaret Hunt-Hill Bridge, designed by Spanish Architect Santiago Calatrava. That evening, planners dressed in their best and went to the Gala Dinner hosted by MSNBC’s Contessa Brewer. Planners dined while special guest Tim Halperin from Ame rican Idol performed his gorgeous piano melodies. At the after party, planners enjoyed a performance by country king and SMU alum Jack Ingram. The weekend’s festivities concluded the following morning with a farewell Gospel Brunch to send them back to their hometowns.
The Omni Hotel in the heart of Downtown Dallas did a wonderful job introducing the meeting planners to our Dallas. Congratulations to the Omni Dallas Hotel on such a successful Grand Opening weekend. We hope when the meeting planners begin to plan their next meeting, they think “Definitely Dallas!”.
