Conventions are the lifeblood of any major city, bringing in millions of dollars each year. Thanks to the dynamic efforts of the Dallas Convention & Visitors Bureau, Dallas is one of the nation's premier destinations for both big conventions and casual tourists. Tourism currently rings up a whopping $3 billion in economic impact for the Dallas area. More than 22 million people visit Big D each year, and tourism provides Dallas with an estimated 50,000 jobs. Under the direction of CEO Phillip Jones, the DCVB is working to make those numbers even bigger.
