As the 1980s came to a close, Fortune Magazine
named Dallas/Fort Worth site of many major corporate relocations
-- the No. 1 business center in the land. Dallas also gained
international attention as a dominant force in the convention,
meetings and tourism industry. Dallas is one of the leading
convention destinations in the U.S., due to the city's outstanding
convention and meeting facilities, world-class accommodations,
numerous restaurants, and endless variety of entertainment
and recreational opportunities.
Important to this effort was the rejuvenation of downtown Dallas as a major center for entertainment and other pursuits. The Dallas Arts District, the West End Historic District along with continued renovation and upgrading of downtown hotels, has been a driving force in this renaissance.
As the 21st century dawns, Dallas continues to build on its strengths: friendly people, entrepreneurial spirit, flair for style and innovation, mild climate, excellent accessibility, and outstanding quality of life. Visitors and residents alike enjoy exceptional opportunities.
