We encourage you to still see if there is anything available at the host hotel, but also consider AirBnB, or any other travel sites to try to find the best deal!

Flying In?

Dallas/Fort Worth is home to two world class airports, both within 30 miles of the Omni Fort Worth.

DFW International Airport (DFW) is the second largest airport in the United States, serving over 200 destinations via over 30 airlines, including acting as the hub for American Airlines

Dallas Love Field (DAL) serves as the hub for Southwest Airlines, and is a great option for anyone travelling on a budget.

When to Get Here?

Friday night, July 31 is when festivities get underway. At 5pm the CDT the official free-for-all red carpet ceremony and networking mixer takes place on the 2nd Floor Lobby of the Omni. Enjoy food, drinks, snap pictures on the red carpet, and connect with your fellow conference goers before Academy of Podcasters Awards gets underway at 7pm.
