Omni Hotel Dallas, The Big Freeze, and YouPlusDallas

Posted by    |    April 26th, 2012 at 11:09 am

Today through Sunday April 29, the new Omni Hotel Dallas will be hosting hundreds of influential meeting planners from across the nation for the Grand Opening Experience. The meeting planners will get to experience the best of Dallas: visiting Texas Motor Speedway, touring Southfork Ranch with Dallas star Larry Hagman and a Dallas Cowboys Stadium tour among other exciting experiences and musical appearances from Tim Halperin and Jack Ingram.

Sounds pretty cool, eh? Here’s how we look at it: impress meeting planners + meetings eventually planned in Dallas = awesome economic impact for our city.

YouPlusDallas videographers & co will be on scene tweeting about Omni Dallas events and bringing you a video recap of the best of the Grand Opening Experience.

One of the first events for the meeting planners is happening today, and it’s called The Big Freeze. You’re probably familiar with The Big Freeze 360-degree camera experience from the Grammys, Golden Globes, and other glamorous Hollywood events. Our crew set up the Big Freeze at the Omni this morning, and meeting planners will be walking the red carpet today before having their image taken by the famous camera. Check out our set up pictures of the big freeze, and make sure to follow us on twitter @youplusdallas Omni Hotel Dallas at @omnihotels #Dallas #OmniEvent and @OmniMeetings.

11/22/63, which hits shelves November 8, is about a time traveling English teacher who tries to prevent Oswald from aiming that fatal shot. The book, which required an incredible amount of research to accurately portray the late 1950s and early 60s, is a departure for the novelist who is most famous for causing night terrors and goose bumps.
