Von Harden just announced the new venue for the 2nd Annual 2017 IATDG Conference. Plan now for early registration.
We are pleased to OFFICIALLY announce that the 2017 IATDG Tour and Talent Conference and Recruitment Fair will be held November 10-13, in the beautiful Dallas/Ft. Worth area in the great State of Texas!
We acknowledge that our previous announcement of Las Vegas, NV, as the 2017 conference destination was premature. Unfortunately, this location had to be changed. I take full responsibility for this faux pas and sincerely apologize for any inconvenience.
We hope you will be as excited as we are about our new conference venue, the swanky Hilton Granite Park in Plano, and the Dallas/Ft. Worth area as a great destination!
Our primary goal in establishing this conference is to provide our members with a top-quality experience that is both highly valuable and affordable. To that end, we believe we've checked all the boxes.
• According to Cheapflights.com’s annual U.S. Airport Affordability Index, DFW ranks as the second cheapest airport in the nation.
• At $99/night for our group rate, the Hilton Granite Park delivers comfort and luxury at a great price. Check out their TripAdvisor reviews!
• Dallas is a culinary destination known for fresh, local and innovative cuisine and famous for their Tex-Mex, steaks and barbecue. Yum!
• And the potential for unique and memorable tours? Wow! We can visit The Perot Museum of Nature and Science, AT&T Stadium (Home of the Dallas Cowboys), The George W. Bush Presidential Library, North Texas Wineries, or one of DFW’s nearby resorts and casinos - Windstar or Choctaw. Not to mention J.R. Ewing’s Southfork Ranch, Fort Worth Stockyards, the Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza or the stunning Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden!
We are so excited to host another memorable event full of fun, fellowship, growing and learning. We look forward to seeing you at the Conference! Registration will open approximately March 1. Please stay tuned for further information.
