Gaylord Texan Resort & Convention Center on Lake Grapevine will open its $120 million expansion on May 1, 2018.

Named the “Vineyard Tower,” the expansion adds 303 guestrooms to its current 1,511 and 86,000 square feet of meeting space to the existing property - making it the third largest, non-gaming convention/ meetings hotel in the United States.

The project was completed by property owners Ryman Hospitality Properties, Inc.

“This expansion illustrates Ryman Hospitality Properties’ confidence in group business demand within our brand,” said Gaylord Senior Vice President Mike Stengel. “In addition to enhancing our Grapevine destination, the expansion has provided 450 construction jobs and several hundred permanent jobs for the local community.”

The Vineyard Tower has accommodations like a main driveway, two outdoor garden terraces, over 30,000 square feet of meeting space distributed across the first two floors, and the 30,000-square-foot Tate Ballroom.

The Sheraton Dallas Hotel, a Marriott International property, has announced the commencement of a multimillion dollar renovation of the downtown Dallas hotel and convention property.

The Sheraton’s location in the downtown Dallas Arts District has made it a favorite gathering place for businesses and venue for social gatherings.

 

Texas Live!, Arlington’s new $1 billion entertainment complex officially opened on August 9. The Texas Rangers, The Cordish Companies and the City of Arlington project, located between the Texas Rangers’ Globe Life Park and the Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium will also feature several new options for meetings and event planners, including 35,000-square-feet of meeting, event and convention space.

 

This August, the new Doug Pitcock ’49 Texas A&M Hotel and Conference Center will be open to the public holding a new membership in IACC. This credential, better known as the International Association of Conference Centers, is an elite acknowledgement of stellar service and hospitality. As the only international association representing small-to-medium-sized venues, this membership includes thought leaders of the meetings and events industry.
