Highlights and Heads Up for Day 1
Lovin’ this Lunch Thing
Since you’re awesome and came to State of Search, you’re getting a $30 pre-paid VISA gift card to buy your lunch on us for the next two days. Bring your badge to the concierge desk after 10 am to get it punched and collect the card. Now you’re free to spend it anywhere in Deep Ellum during the 90-minute lunch break. Pretty swanky, right? Just click here to download a map and get the 411 on all the great places to eat, or you can pick up a copy at the concierge desk.
OK Kids, Party Time!
There ain’t no party like a Dallas party, and we’re stepping things up this year with Monday night’s Halftime Party! Come rock out at Trees, the most famous performance venue in Deep Ellum. You can play games like PAC-MAN and Guitar Hero. But, if singing is more your style, we’re bringing in Time Machine, so you can sing karaoke with a live band and backup singers. And if you get hungry? The best food trucks in Dallas will be on site at 6:00 pm, serving dinner, AND there’s an onsite BBQ smoker. You’ll pay for your own food, but you’ll get two drink tickets on us! It’ll be a party for the ages.
All the details you need…

If walking isn’t your thing, we’ve got you covered…
We will be running a shuttle to and from the hotel each day. e-frogs will be on hand to get you to and from parking lots, lunch and to the Halftime Party. Dallas also has Uber – you’re covered. Oh, and we wrote a blog about it – click here.
If you’re driving in and need parking information, we have you covered. Parking options are included in the Deep Ellum map.
If there are things you still want to know, don’t worry. You’ll be hearing from us again several times from now through the end of the event. We’ll do our best to make sure you have everything you need along the way. And don’t forget, if you have questions when you are at the conference, you can ask our concierge.
