Company Description:

The staff at the McKinney Convention & Visitors Bureau strives to assist you, the association professional, in planning meetings, working retreats, or any other event you might like to host in North Texas.

We want to help you find all that McKinney has to offer business and leisure travelers alike. Visitors to McKinney often share with us their memorable and positive experiences with our city’s unique historic charm, eclectic shopping, dining and cultural offerings, and beautiful, tranquil surroundings. Named by the U.S. Census as one of the fastest growing cities in the country for the past decade, and by Money Magazine as the #1 Best Place to Live in America (2104), McKinney has been able to maintain a hometown feel and friendly atmosphere while also enjoying tremendous growth. This blend of historic preservation and new development also provides McKinney with a nice mix of meeting and event venue options, from the historic to the technically-appointed, to meet the unique needs of each association professional.

Located a mere 30 miles north of Dallas, McKinney offers the convenience of and close proximity to the big city without the hustle-bustle. McKinney is an easy drive from either Dallas Love Field or Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport. For those association professionals who travel by private or charter aircraft, the McKinney National Airport (McKinney TKI), located just five minutes from the historic downtown square, offers the following amenities, making it an attractive destination for non-commercial aircraft travelers:

24-hour customs and rental transportation are available on-site;

A 7002-foot-long runway and 78-foot control tower are capable of accommodating large aircraft traffic; and

It sits on the inside edge of DFW Class-B airspace, simplifying and shortening aircraft arrival and departure times.

A city-owned and operated FBO that is rated by pilots among the best in the nation.

McKinney is experiencing an increase in available hotel accommodations and meeting space, thanks to the building and opening of several new hotel properties over the past two or three years. In 2015, three new hotels brought more than 350 new rooms to McKinney: the Sheraton McKinney Hotel & Conference Center, 186 rooms and 20,000 square feet of meeting space positioned; a Hampton Hotel & Suites, 79 rooms, 1200 square feet of meeting space, and complimentary hot breakfast, perfect for a retreat or committee meeting; and Townplace Suites by Marriott extended stay property, 88 rooms with complimentary hot breakfast. Then in early 2017, a new Holiday Inn Express opened in the Craig Ranch area of McKinney, adding roughly 90 more rooms to McKinney’s lodging availability and a small meeting space as well as complimentary hot breakfast. Two new extended stay hotels – Springhill Suites and Home2 Suites – will open in McKinney in late 2017 or early 2018, bringing 128 rooms and 107 rooms respectively. Both hotels will also have a small amount of meeting space, perfect for board meetings.
