DISCOUNT ON VONLANE BUS TRAVEL
We have secured a 10% discount for those traveling to and from Dallas from either Austin or Houston on the upscale, business traveler-oriented charter motor coach service Vonlane. If you are not familiar with them, their custom-configured coaches contain only 16 first-class seats versus the 56 seats of a same-size charter bus. They feature WiFi, and you and your co-workers can reserve a private workspace to discuss important projects. Vonlane lets you make the most of your valuable (and billable) time. If you are interested in receiving the 10% discount to attend METROCON17, then apply the promo code METROCON17 at the checkout screen. (Discount good on fares through August 14th.)
>>ALERT: CONCURRENT EVENT @ DMC
The Dallas Apparel & Accessories Market is going on at the Dallas Market Center campus August 9-12, overlapping with METROCON17 on Aug 10-11, so please plan your travel times to and parking times at Dallas Market Hall accordingly.
