Top Reasons to Meet in Irving

If you and your group like a nice big steak saddled up with your samba, farm-to-table with your honky tonk, or a little rock ‘n roll with your southern hospitality, then bring your group to Irving where you can stay, meet, entertain, and play in the heart of Irving’s Las Colinas Urban Center

Located right in the middle of the Dallas/Fort Worth area, the fourth largest metro area in the country, Irving combines all the amenities you expect from a large urban area with the charm of a smaller community that feels like home. No matter when your meeting is coming to Texas, Irving has something special for everyone, from lakeside dining to state-of-the-art facilities.

Entertainment District

Thanks to an infusion of fresh ideas and crowd-pleasing amenities, Irving has quickly become one of Texas’s premiere travel destinations. Large-scale developments continue to add charm and sophistication to this fantastic meeting spot. 

Toyota Music Factory, for example, is one of the most expansive and comprehensive entertainment venues in the country. The $173-million entertainment complex is DFW's newest and boldest entertainment venue. Boasting an incredible array of bars and restaurants and playing host to the best national and international touring music acts, the Toyota Music Factory experience is completely unique and sure to please everyone in your group. Toyota Music Factory represents the second phase of Irving’s vision for a distinctive visitors district.

 

Texas-sized Accommodations

No matter what size your group is, Irving has you covered. From luxury resorts to economy offerings, Irving provides rooming options to fit your needs. You’ll find everything from private suites and amphitheaters to magnificent ballrooms and formal boardrooms. From the expansive 275,000-square-foot Irving Convention Center at Las Colinas to dozens of hotels with ample meeting space, there is no shortage of room to host your group.

Stunning Convention Facility

With its futuristic design and high-end finishes, the Irving Convention Center at Las Colinas is functional, aesthetically appealing, cutting-edge, eco-friendly, and inviting. Your attendees will relish spending a few days in this gorgeous space. The facility represents a departure from the traditional, institutional big-box convention centers of other cities, and was designed to create interesting places to interact with colleagues and clients.

The center is divided into three main levels with the 50,000-square-foot, column-free exhibition hall on the first floor. The mezzanine level, located just above the first floor, features a relaxing cafe and outdoor covered terrace with access from both inside and outside the facility. The meeting and junior ballroom level provides 20,000 square feet of meeting space in up to 20 different breakout rooms, each averaging about 1,000 square feet.

Stellar Customer Service

Since Irving is located in one of the friendliest states in the nation, it’s no surprise to find excellent customer service all across the town. Southern hospitality abounds at the various hotels, meeting spaces, event venues, restaurants, and more. At the Irving Convention Center, for example, staff are happy to provide a range of complimentary services, including helping with registration services, creating guest itineraries, making name badges, visitor bags and brochures, and, for some qualifying groups, offering room night incentives. Check with us to find out what else is available at other area venues.
