MERA KnowledgeFest Moving to Downtown Dallas
The Mobile Electronics Retailers Association (MERA) said Monday that its annual KnowledgeFest event will take place this year at the Hilton Anatole hotel in downtown Dallas. The event had been held the last three years at the Gaylord Texan hotel in nearby Grapevine, Tex.
The move, the association said, "allows MERA to enhance the value of the three-day event while making it more accessible and cost-effective for attendees."
“We knew that, when considering new venues for our event, we wanted to stay in or around Dallas,” MERA President Chris Cook said in a statement. “Since we moved KnowledgeFest here in 2011, attendees and exhibitors have told us they like the central location and transportation options. The move to the Hilton Anatole gives us a more versatile location with rooms priced to allow more retail professionals to attend, while staying with the Dallas locale.”
