Downtown Dallas, Inc. (DDI) is excited to announce its 2017 Annual Meeting Presented by HKS, Inc.  Our Annual Meeting will be held on March 6, 2017, from 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. at the Omni Dallas Hotel.

This year we are thrilled to welcome keynote speaker, Greg Lindsay.  Author, urban futurist, and Senior Fellow of the New Cities Foundation, Lindsay will share his work related to connected mobility, innovation and the “serendipity” in our cities, all principles that are critical to the next generation of cities, and how we, in Downtown Dallas, can embrace these trends.  Lindsay is a senior fellow of the New Cities Foundation — where he leads the Connected Mobility Initiative — a non-resident senior fellow of The Atlantic Council’s Strategic Foresight Initiative, and a visiting scholar at New York University’s Rudin Center for Transportation Policy & Management.  He is also a contributing writer for Fast Company and co-author of the critically acclaimed bestseller Aerotropolis: The Way We’ll Live Next.

He is currently Urbanist-in-Residence at MINI’s startup incubator, Urban-X, and has previously advised Intel, Ericsson, Samsung, Audi, Chrysler, and Expo 2020.  His work on the future of cities has been displayed at New York’s Museum of Modern Art, the 15th Venice Architecture Biennale, and Habitat III.  Greg is also a two-time Jeopardy! champion, and the only human to go undefeated against IBM’s Watson.

With sell-out crowds of nearly 1,500 for the last five years, this event is an opportunity to engage with others interested in Downtown’s vitality, and also to educate clients, colleagues, and employees about the latest happenings and future plans for Downtown.  It is the only event solely dedicated to center city issues.  It is also a fundraiser for DDI, helping us to achieve our mission through critical programs such as the Downtown Safety Patrol, advocacy efforts, the Clean Team, and economic development initiatives.

Sponsorships and individual tickets are available for purchase here.  We hope you will demonstrate your support and join us for an enlightening look at the future of our city!
