Gleaming downtown skyscrapers is certainly not the Texas of pickup trucks and cowboy boots. You can find world-class museums and restaurants, funky neighborhoods, swanky shopping malls, gritty bars, and a vibrant music scene. The nearly year-round warm weather makes it ideal for getting work done in a cafe patio or getting your heart rate racing out on a running trail.

Make the most of your time in Dallas! Shop 'til you drop, explore Dallas like a local, experience world-class dining and get your sports fix. Let the bold, vibrant spirit of Dallas, with a touch of Texas charm, guide the way to your BIG Dallas moment.

Because there are Executive Committee meetings and Board meetings taking place at the Omni in conjunction with the TASA|TASB Convention, the guest rooms at the headquarter hotel are reserved for TASA and TASB association leadership. This does not mean association staff; these guest rooms are occupied by TASA's Executive Committee and their local boards and TASB's Board of Directors and their local boards.

For questions about this process or help with problems encountered with the hotels, call 800.340.1905 or e-mail tasa_tasb@chmrooms.com.

TASA|TASB shuttle buses

Convention shuttles are provided complimentary between official TASA|TASB Convention hotels and the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

The Omni Dallas and Aloft is considered "walkable" properties to the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center. All other hotels listed in the 2019 Official Hotel list above will have shuttle serve.

If you require a wheelchair assisted service pickup, please call the phone number listed on the shuttle service sign (available in hotel lobbies) at least 30 minutes before your desired departure time to be sure we can adequately accommodate your needs.

Dallas Rideshare

Dallas has many transportation options for getting around, including Uber, Lyft, eFrogs, or Dart to get easy access anywhere in the downtown Dallas area, as well as shuttles direct to the airport. Download your preferred app or visit their website for more information.

Housing pirates

When we secure sleeping rooms at hotels for our conferences (commonly referred to as room blocks), we research the properties to make sure that our attendees will be adequately accommodated. The room block is established to ensure that rooms meet our standards and are offered at a discounted price.

We are informed that registrants are often contacted by fax, e-mail or most often by phone with offers for cut rate housing. The intent is to convince you that the offer is made on our behalf, or that the soliciting company is associated with TASA|TASB. This is not true. The exclusive service provider for TASA|TASB Convention housing is Convention Housing Management (CHM). Find out more about how housing pirates work and what to do if you encounter this situation.

Assistance with housing

Housing for the TASA|TASB Convention is handled exclusively by Convention Housing Management (CHM). Please call 800.340.1905 or e-mail tasa_tasb@chmrooms.com for assistance.​

If you have questions that CHM cannot answer, e-mail Mandy Begley at mandy.begley@tasb.org or call 800.580.8272, extension 6104.
