Getting to the 2019 Conference is easy! Whether you are flying or driving (or flying and then driving) all the information you need to plan for smooth traveling is below.
Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) is served by nearly every major airline and quite a few minor ones and is 6 miles from the resort. You can also fly into Love Field, visit their website for ground transportation options. In addition to regular daily flights, you might find some smaller airlines have flights one-way on several days of the week, and the other way on different days and sometimes are quite a bit cheaper than the big airline companies.
The Gaylord Texan is only five minutes away from DFW. Love Field is over 40 minutes away. With the exception of Southwest and Virgin, many major airlines fly into DFW; we strongly advise arranging your air transportation into DFW, as ground transportation to and from Love Field will be very costly.
If you fly in, you have several options for getting from the airport to the Gaylord Texan Resort, where the Conference will be held.
You can order an Uber to and from the Dallas/Fort Worth or Love Field International Airports via the Uber app (available on Apple and Android devices). The price for your fare will depend on what option you choose, but if you choose the economy option, the price will be comparable or even a bit less than a standard taxi.
There are several taxi companies that serve DFW Airport. Taxi service is available on the upper level of Terminals A, B, C and E, and on the lower level of Terminal D.
If you are planning to rent a car, there are several car rental agencies located at the airport, and you can make reservations in advance online or by phone. Also consider making your car rental reservation with your airline reservation; sometimes you can get good discounts by packaging them together. For a complete list of car rental services located at the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, please visit their site here.
The Gaylord Texan Resort is located Dallas, TX 6 miles from DFW Airport. The venue address is: 1501 Gaylord Trail, Grapevine, TX 76051.
