Ideally situated in the center of the U.S., Irving is the gateway to the Dallas/Fort Worth area, a hotbed of Fortune 500 companies, and a mosaic of diverse cultures. You can get to Irving in less than a three-hour flight from either coast. The city is also located adjacent to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport and minutes from Dallas Love Field Airport.
With a walkable entertainment and visitor’s district anchored by the convention center and the new, modern Westin headquarter hotel, Irving is on trend with tons for attendees to do during their free time. Once they’re here, they won’t have to go far to experience something new or tried and true, as everything is a stroll away.
Outside the Irving Convention Center’s doors is the new Toyota Music Factory, an entertainment complex with an indoor/outdoor amphitheater, a festival plaza, a Cineplex, and more than 20 dining options. The concert lineup at the Pavilion at the Toyota Music Factory competes with any arena in the country, and venues all around town offer live local music.
A convention facility surrounded by live music, dining, and fun gives meeting planners more great options for onsite and offsite events and attendees more options for nearby networking. Everyone knows there’s nothing that bonds a team quite like happy hour drinks or a nightcap, and when the area boasts a vibrant nightlife, the possibilities for fun are endless. These types of visitor districts also make planning fun for organizers. They can organize team-building activities such as beer/wine tastings, dine arounds, and scavenger hunts with ease

There’s a lot about the city of Irving that defies convention – including the Irving Convention Center itself. Clients love its proximity to the airport, individual breakout spaces, and vertical design. The center is the cornerstone of the new visitor’s district with walkable access to a Westin headquarter hotel and to the Toyota Music Factory with dozens of dining/entertainment options.
Perhaps the center’s most surprising differentiator is something you don’t normally associate with convention facilities: upscale, inventive food. The chef-inspired menu goes way beyond the standard fare. With its unique design, convenient location, and attention to detail that you would expect in a five-star hotel, the Irving Convention Center has become a coveted meeting place for events.
When meetings are over, fun takes center stage. Next door to the convention center, the Toyota Music Factory is an amazing entertainment development. The Live Nation Pavilion amphitheater anchors the $173M complex with an entertainment lineup that competes with almost any arena in the world. But the Toyota Music Factory offers more than just music. The 8,000-capacity amphitheater may be the biggest draw, but with the Alamo Drafthouse movie theater and more than 20 bars and restaurants filling up its storefronts, the Toyota Music Factory keeps visitors entertained all night long. It’s perfect for offsite meetings and off-the-clock itineraries.
