In the past, Dallas businesses have looked to first-rate locations outside of the metroplex to host corporate retreats, seminars and travel programs, but the current market situation has executives booking “stay-cations,” keeping the essential events closer to home and minimizing travel costs. Union Station, which is conveniently located at the center of downtown Dallas, with easy access to AMTRAK, Trinity Railway Express and the DART, has quickly become the venue of choice for local businesses embracing this new trend.

Unlike typical conference centers and hotel boardrooms in the area, Union Station surrounds visitors with tall arched windows and stunning architecture, and offers world-class cuisine by Wolfgang Puck Catering. Built in the early 1900s as a train station, this triple historic registered building, which recently completed a $23 million renovation, offers 18,000 square feet of event space, ideal for board meetings, press conferences, focus groups and leadership training seminars.

Union Station, which can accommodate groups ranging from 10-2,000 guests, boasts eight rooms, each bearing the name of one of the original train lines, all of which can easily be arranged for a variety of seating layouts, from conference, to classroom, to banquet style. There are several open lounge areas as well as a covered loggia which provides incredible views of downtown Dallas. From accessing high-speed wireless Internet, to securing audiovisual equipment, the facility is also equipped to assist companies with technological needs for PowerPoint presentation, guest speakers and videos.

Wolfgang Puck Catering’s team of experts will attentively plan and execute every occasion to perfection, so guests can focus on the more important business at hand. Their seasoned sales force is available to discuss and personally tailor packages that best fit the needs of your company. Whether it is a breakfast meeting, team building lunch, or executive dinner, Wolfgang Puck Catering’s gracious service, cutting-edge creativity and dedication to using only the freshest seasonal ingredients, makes every event flawless.

Centrally located, Union Station provides unparalleled convenience to transportation, making this an easily accessible meeting place for both metroplex dwellers and out-of-towners. Beyond compare in terms of space, quality and cuisine by internationally renowned Wolfgang Puck Catering, Union Station welcomes local businesses to enjoy a “stay-cation” in the heart of downtown Dallas.
