About The Statler
As the saying goes, everything’s bigger in Texas. And The Statler is no exception…
But it’s not just the size of the hotel that’s impressive (though when it opened in 1956 it was in fact the largest hotel in the Southwest). No, The Statler is much larger than its footprint or square footage. Its prominence and place in history are what make this hotel larger than life.
Hailed as a masterpiece in mid-century modern architecture, The Statler has spent 60 years as the hub of creativity and innovation in Dallas. Revolutionary business ideas have been sparked in its conference rooms. Iconic thinkers from around the world have laid their heads to rest in its beautiful guest suites. Oh, and the stories about creative visionaries like Tina Turner, Elvis Presley, and The Jackson Five leaving it all on The Statler’s stage? Let’s just say they’re legendary…
With this history of innovation and creativity pulsing through the walls and floorboards of The Statler, we couldn’t think of a more appropriate place to host DISRUPT. Could you?
