#6: Dallas Knows How to Save Money!
If the food extravaganza and the rooftop pool didn’t do it for you, perhaps saving a little cash (or at least knowing the right places to spend it) will do the trick? TCG has you covered. First and foremost: DFW being the home of American Airlines, the airline has joined us as the Official and Exclusive Airline for the 2013 National Conference, and is generously offering a 5% discount off airfare for any of our attendees! Visit our transportation page for information on how to take advantage of this discount when booking your travel. Plan to do some driving while in town? Check out our Avis discount as well. Want to cruise around town in the evenings or in your ‘off’ time? Check out the Dallas Visitors Bureau’s coupons and deals. And as a bonus: if you’re coming to town on Wednesday, June 5, our colleagues at NNPN will be celebrating their 15th birthday, and have invited TCG guests to place first dibs on tickets to their show and party that night, following TCG’s pre-registration reception. All the info is here.
#5: Dallas Knows How to Spend Money!
You say you’re more of a shopper than a saver? Or you still have gift cards from December burning a hole in your wallet? Maybe you just like to window shop? You’ll fit right in too. Aside from all the shows that will be happening while TCG is in town, and the Dinearounds that our host committee has in store, you’ll find yourself a hop, skip and jump from NorthPark Shopping Center, known as one of “7 Retail Wonders of the Modern World.” Among all the luxury stores, this shopping mecca boasts Adults-Only shopping hours every night after 6!
The point is, TCG and Dallas will have you covered with plenty of ways to save and things to do and see while you’re with us – but the BEST way to save is to book before the Early Bird deadline and register now!
