Attendees will stay at the W Dallas Victory hotel, but there’ll be fun and interesting side trips and parties at venues including the Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium, where there’ll be a foodservice and technology tour, time on the field at the 50-yard line and a drinks and dessert reception in the team’s locker room. The event is on a first-come, first-served basis to the first 50 registrants, so sign up fast.

Besides the conference’s sessions and events, attendees can also take part in our Welcome to Dallas and Election Night Watch Party, where theycan watch the Nov. 6 midterm election coverage at the W Dallas hotel.

Health-conscious and sports-minded attendees will also get to participate in our RIS Run along the Katy Trail on Nov. 7 and a RIS Rise Yoga session on Nov. 8.
