Lanyon Live 2016 enriched attendees professionally and personally through its #BetterTogether theme. Evening events included an opening reception on the rooftop of the Renaissance Dallas Hotel that treated guests to all things local—from food and wine to music to indie artisan producers. Attendees let their hair down at an innovative off-site venue, CrashedToys Dallas, where they mingled, indulged and danced in a fun indoor and outdoor setting amid live music, Harleys, Italian sports cars and other treasures at an event sponsored by the Dallas CVB. LanyonLive attendees also had a chance to take a break from the show to write special birthday messages to North Texas foster children through the Friends of Wednesday’s child program. Meanwhile, Lanyon Luminaries brought attendees together for an inaugural awards ceremony celebrating thought leaders and industry pioneers who are transforming the meeting, event, travel and hotel industries.
