A big city with a small-town feel, Fort Worth offers everything you need for a successful meeting. There’s an itinerary for every type of budget, the people are warm and welcoming, and the Visit Fort Worth team will pitch in with ideas, point out favorites and treat you to that famous Southern hospitality. A true original, this city is more than cowboy boots and state-of-the-art skyscrapers. In Fort Worth, you’ll find a culture that embodies the Texas meeting you want.
Logistically, Fort Worth is a dream for planners and groups. With the fourth-largest airport just a short ride away, the city is accessible from practically anywhere. Once your group is in town, it’s easy to explore. The walkable downtown is brimming with hotels, meeting spaces and entertainment options. Nearby, attendees will come across authentic Western experiences, museums and more. Whether you break in your boots or take a ride, getting to and from everything is a cinch.
You’ll be able to rally attendees with dozens of immersive team-building activities—many unique to Fort Worth. Groups can rev it up on the Texas Motor Speedway, taste authentic Texas eats or try quirky adventures like the Fort Worth Axe Factory. No matter the size of your group, everyone can experience a little bit of cowboys and culture with customized events and itineraries.
If you're looking for new venue options and distinctive themed event ideas, Fort Worth has plenty of unique meeting spaces. For traditionalists, there’s the Texas-sized Fort Worth Convention Center (four football fields of space, y’all!). Attendees can spread out or stick together in Sundance Square, an urban masterpiece with 35 square blocks of entertainment, eats and nightlife. They can hunker down in historic Western facilities like Stockyards Station, which can accommodate more than 1,400 attendees. Plan for groups to get closer to nature with events at the Fort Worth Zoo or the Fort Worth Botanic Garden.
The convergence of cowboys and culture truly sets Fort Worth apart. The Western heritage that anchors the city blends with modern culture. The Old West is alive and well with twice-daily cattle drives through the Stockyards National Historic District. A few blocks away, the sophisticated Cultural District hosts five world-class museums filled with masterpieces and priceless antiquities. Nowhere else in the world can you dust off your boots at the rodeo during the day, then suit up for an emotionally moving opera by night.
Impeccable service, authentic attractions and exciting venues are just the start. Let Visit Fort Worth help you plan the Texas meeting you want. For planning tools and more information, visit fortworth.com/meetings.
