The Renaissance Dallas at Plano Legacy West Hotel celebrated its grand opening in September. The hotel includes 15 floors, 288 rooms, 16 suites, 19 meeting rooms and 30,000 square feet of ballroom and event space. Located next door to the newly developed Toyota Motors North America headquarters and the Dallas Cowboys World Headquarters, the hotel features a provocative and diverse collection of art that underscores its inventive West of Zen design theme. Through the hotel’s design, hotel owner and developer Sam Moon Group of the handbag and accessories empire, sought to honor the company’s Korean roots. The theme also extends a welcome to international guests traveling on business to the multinational corporations headquartered within the Legacy West corridor, and incorporates north Texas influences. 

South by Southwest (SXSW) returned live this year! The 35-year-old festival infuses on average $16-plus million of consumer spending into the Austin music scene over the course of nine days. The festival returned in March after its cancellation in 2020 and virtual show in 2021. Both the cancellation and virtual show were prompted by health and safety concerns due to the pandemic.
