This will be followed by a series of talks on the key trends and consumer insights that are shaping the way consumers live, work, play, and shop.

Why visit? We’ll suggest more than a dozen unique consumer insights-oriented experiences for you to explore following the Dallas Innovation Conference

Dallas Innovation Conference Venue
As the commercial and cultural hub of north Texas, Dallas has no shortage of innovative experiences to discover. Not only is the city home to some of the biggest energy and transportation companies, but it is also the base for many up-and-coming businesses that are pioneering major industry changes. In fact, the venue for the Dallas Research Conference is located not too far from many of these industry leaders and influential startups.

Looking to discover trends and innovation in Dallas?
Dallas is one of the very few cities can boast having a team in all four of the major sports leagues (NFL, NBA, MLB, and NHL). As a result, Dallas is the perfect place to see how the fan experience is being transformed with new technology, unique merchandise, and immersive activations at venues such as AT&T Stadium and the American Airlines Center. These innovations also carry over beyond the world of sports and into that of retail, dining, and entertainment. Some noteworthy hotspots to explore following the Dallas Research Conference include Ida Claire, which serves up Southern comfort food inside a decked-out airstream trailer, and the High & Tight barbershop, which serves up complex cocktails alongside trims and cuts.
