Every year, Dallas comes to life with the first taste of spring. And while spring is coloring the streets with its blossoming flowers and deep shades of green, Visit Dallas is adding some artwork of its own. 

Dallas Arts Month has been held annually in the month of April after it was launched by Mayor Mike Rawlings in 2013 as Dallas Arts Week. In 2017, the artful week grew into an entire month of celebrating the city's vibrant and dynamic cultural scene.

The celebration, which is for Dallas residents and visitors of all ages, includes festivals, plays, concerts, exhibitions and literary events. In addition to ticketed events, there are several community events that are free and open to the public.

Phillip Jones, Visit Dallas president and CEO, says Dallas Arts Month is great for groups visiting Dallas for business. With a plethora of galleries and museums, Jones says there's always a special exhibit or concert to check out after a meeting. Business travelers are also encouraged to extend their stay to participate in various weekend celebrations.

"Dallas Arts Month is designed to foser creative learning and activity throughout the city while building awareness and appreciation for the work of Dallas artists and organizations, " Jones says. "The month-long celebration gives a chance for the city's talented artists to showcase their work and is an opportunity for Dallas residents to discover new art experiences."

On September 1, over 1,500 businesses across the country illuminated their buildings with red lights to draw attention to the devastation that the live events and performance art industries have faced as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

According to a survey commissioned by the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AHLA), frequent travelers feel safer when hotels adhere to AHLA's Stay Safe guidelines, which detail cleaning protocols for hotels during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

 

Through responses to bi-weekly surveys, Global Business Travel Association members have indicated that domestic busines travel is ramping up after months of struggle.
