Convention

Save the date for Convention 2018 in Dallas, Texas!

Important Information: The Hyatt Regency Dallas room block has now reached capacity. We will be looking into either adding rooms (based on availality) or sourcing additional rooms at a nearby property. If you are still in need of a hotel room, please email Page Adams. This will assist us in getting an accurate picture of how many rooms we need to secure.

It Starts With Us from June 27-July 1 as we gather as sisters in Dallas, Texas, to conduct Sorority business, enhance our leadership skills, celebrate our ritual and embrace our sisterhood.

Join your sisters at the Hyatt Regency Dallas, connected to the iconic Reunion Tower and featuring sweeping 360-degree views of downtown Dallas. Dallas is the commercial and cultural hub of the region and features not only great Texas barbecue, but many landmark destinations including the George W. Bush Presidential Library, the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens, the Dallas World Aquarium and the Arts District, which is now one of the largest in the country. There is certainly no shortage of things to explore in the Dallas area!

Come early or stay late to experience everything that Dallas has to offer. Convention guests can even receive the same discounted Hyatt Regency Dallas rate for several days before and after Convention by mentioning you are with Gamma Phi Beta (based on availability). You will need to book your hotel reservations directly with the Hyatt Regency by clicking here.
