Event Summary

When it comes to potential, Downtown Dallas

takes the cake. With new apartment buildings, retail, office, and revitalization of green space, the Big D's Downtown is bustling.

Furthermore, according to a new report, there is

more low hanging fruit to pick than ever before, with over 86 acres of land full of development potential just Downtown. We'll dive deeper into those opportunities and how today's biggest players see it all panning out.

Transportation, connectivity,

innovation, tech tenants, and urban development are going to be buzzwords at this one as we'll hear more about the Dallas Smart District, the evolution of the West End, and AT&T's $100M Discovery District. As always, we're bringing you quality content, top speakers, hot coffee, and the best breakfast burritos in town. Don't miss this opportunity to network and learn
