Downtown Fort Worth is one of the finest entertainment and shopping districts in the Southwest.  Highlighted by Sundance Square, downtown Ft. Worth is a dazzling, 35-block development filled with boutiques, restaurants, night spots, and art galleries.  There are ample options to entertain anyone and everyone!

The Hilton's location in the heart of this area makes it easy and fun to enjoy yourself after the conference finishes each day.  We have a series of social events plans for attendees that we will update throughout the week of the meetings.  Highlights of the social calendar include the following:
