Air Transportation

If you are not covered by a WIN subsidy, you are responsible for your own flight costs. We encourage you to use Kim Bradford at Colwick Travel to book your flights to Dallas Fort Worth International Airport. You can do so by completing the Flight Request Form during registration or by calling Kim directly at 972‑387‑5757, ext. 248.

The nearest airports include Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (23 miles from the Omni Frisco Hotel) and Dallas Love Field Airport (22 miles from the Omni Frisco Hotel).

All flights paid for by 1st Global under the WIN or BMS subsidies must comply with the 1st Global Travel Parameters and must be booked by June 27, 2019.


Lodging

Omni Frisco Hotel at The Star

Unlike previous years, Communities 2019 registration packages have been adjusted to allow more flexibility for attendees to make their own lodging arrangements. The registration fee has been reduced significantly to $349 because it no longer includes hotel costs. All attendees are responsible for their own hotel booking and costs.

1st Global has secured a block of guestrooms at the Omni Frisco Hotel at The Star at a discounted rate of $199 (plus tax) per night. This discounted rate is available from July 18-26, based on availability. To receive this discounted rate, all hotel reservations must be completed via the Omni Frisco Hotel secure reservation portal provided to you at the end of your event registration. This link is unique to 1st Global and will ensure that the discounted group room rate is given. A credit card will be required to confirm the reservation.
