Visit Dallas Sales
The Visit Dallas sales department helps to attract and create awareness, acceptance and action towards the contracting of over 1,700 meetings and conventions in our city through sales goals, tradeshows, customer events, site visits and familiarization tours. These are some of the tools Dallas Tourism Public Improvement District (DTPID) supports to help generate revenue in our city. Through our selling efforts Visit Dallas saves an average of $1,200 per home in property taxes annually, easing the burden on Dallas residents.
Since the Omni Dallas hotel was completed, Dallas competes on a national stage with other well-known cities such as Las Vegas, Chicago, Atlanta, Orlando and Denver. Without DTPID resources, our market share would be significantly less abundant, providing less jobs and tax revenues.
The primary focus is to promote the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center Dallas, Fair Park, city owned facilities, cultural attractions, as well as our partner hotels and restaurants. These conventions connect locally-based industries with national level organizations. One of the benefits of these conventions is to showcase our city, introducing tens of thousands of attendees to Dallas in hopes they return on leisure trips to enjoy our diverse attractions such as restaurants, museums, and multi-cultural facilities.
