Associated Luxury Hotels Adds New Members In Dallas & Austin

Looking to host an event in the Lone Star State? Associated Luxury Hotels International has added two Texas properties to its portfolio. 

The AT&T Executive Education and Conference Center, located by The University of Texas at Austin, and the Omni Dallas Hotel have been accepted into ALHI’s worldwide portfolio, becoming ALHI’s seventh and eighth member hotels in Texas. ALHI now provides Global Sales Organization (GSO) support, expertise, and sales services to meeting professionals, association executives, incentive/recognition specialists, and business executives in North America interested in conducting meetings and/or programs at the hotels.
