While we continue to build the exciting programming that Dafina talked about here and here, we’re also hard at work coordinating all the elements unrelated to content that will make our time in Dallas so special. Here is the beginning of the countdown of things I can’t wait to share with you in Dallas!

Reason #10: The Amazing Arts District Venues! This June, the TCG Conference will break out of the confines of a hotel setting and move into the beautiful expanse of architecture that is the Dallas Arts District. The Dallas City Performance Hall is a brand new multidisciplinary center the district refers to as “a village for the arts”…The prize-winning Meyerson Symphony Center is counted among the world’s greatest concert halls and the Nasher Sculpture Center has been called “the most radically open art museum in history”…The Winspear Opera House is an epic performance hall and civic space, and The Wyly Theatre is one of the most innovative theatre spaces in the world. Read more about the breathtaking home of the 2013 National Conference and register now!

Reason #9: The Hotel Rate is Lower than the LAST TWO Conferences! This year’s Conference attendees will be housed in the AAA four-diamond rated Sheraton Dallas hotel, starting at only $119 a night! The hotel is a quick walk to the Conference venues mentioned above, provides plenty of social space to meet up with other Conference attendees – and boasts a fitness center complete with an outdoor, roofdeck pool! That’s right, I said roofdeck pool…is there a better way to end a long day of theatre brainstorming in Dallas?

Stay tuned for the rest of the countdown in the coming weeks!
