Location, Hotel, Travel

We are thrilled to be heading back to Dallas! TAGT 2016 will be sure to keep you busy as you connect, learn and grow with fellow attendees but if you can find a moment, we encourage you to take advantage of everything downtown Dallas has to offer.


Conference sessions, exhibits and more will be held at the Sheraton Dallas Hotel.

Map and Directions

TAGT negotiates contracts with hotel/s in the annual conference cities. This is done to guarantee our attendees will have a hotel room should the city book another major event and receive a low rate based on our ability to bundle all the rooms together. When attendees utilize conference hotels, the association avoids penalties with contracted hotels and keeps conference registration for future meetings cost-effective.

Don’t Fall for Pirates
It has come to our attention that a company is inaccurately representing itself as our “housing vendor” and contacting individuals to solicit business. Specifically, they will offer to make hotel reservations within the TAGT room block on your behalf and may misrepresent themselves as the Sheraton Dallas.

TAGT does not utilize third-party housing services. You will not be contacted by the Sheraton Dallas or any other third-party to make a reservation. If you receive such a call or email, please disregard. Reservations for the TAGT Annual Conference should be made directly with the Sheraton Dallas, via our web reservation system. If you provide your information to any of these unauthorized vendors, your credit card may be charged but you may not have a reservation when you arrive in Dallas.

If you have any questions, please contact paulina@txgifted.org or call 512.499.8248.
