Shopping and Dining, and Meeting Space, Oh My!

Convention Center Newsflash.

With world-class shopping, more than 220 delectable dining options and top-notch meeting space at two convention hotels, it’s easy to see why meeting planners flock to Allen. And with the recent announcement of adding a new $91 million four-star hotel and convention center, we’re sure to see even more planners swooping in to make Allen their next meeting destination spot. The Delta Hotels by Marriott Dallas Allen Watters Creek Convention Center broke ground in April 2017 and is expected to open in 2019. The hotel will have 300 guest rooms and a 1,000-car parking garage at the corner of Bethany Drive and North Central Expressway.

So, whether it’s browsing upscale boutiques or grabbing a glass of vino and admiring the view on the patio, meeting guests and visitors will find all this and more within walking distance, just across the street at Watters Creek. And of course the convention center will have plenty of meeting and exhibit space, 90,000 sq. ft. to be exact. With a 40,000 sq. ft. event center, 20,000 sq. ft. of pre-function space, a 12,000 sq. ft. ballroom ,10,000 sq. ft. exhibit breakout rooms and 8,000 sq. ft. of general meeting and boardroom space – the hotel will have plenty of space for a Texas-size conference, meeting or convention.
