    Hyatt Regency Dallas
    300 Reunion Blvd.
    Dallas, TX 75207

    Click here to reserve your room at the Hyatt Regency Dallas. The daily rate is $179 plus state and local taxes. Reservations are available until October 9, 2016 or until the block sells out, whichever comes first. Space is limited.

    ONLY make your reservation using this link or by calling the hotel directly. Hotel piracy is a new epidemic in the meeting and events industry. Scam companies may reach out notifying you that ISSA has contracted outside vendors to assist you with booking your hotel reservation. These fake companies then pressure you or your office staff to provide them with your credit card information to book your hotel stay directly through them. If you fall for their trick, you may arrive to the meeting location and there will not be a reservation under your name, but your fees for the room would have been stolen from your credit card. If you are contacted in such a manner, please capture as much information as possible and send their contact information to us at Do not make any reservations with another organization, as we will be unable to assist you with any issues that may arise. Only use official ISSA materials to register for the meeting and book your hotel stay – never work with a third party, book directly through our website or email communication. We take the privacy of our members very seriously. ISSA will never release your contact information to a third party housing vendor. Also keep in mind, this situation could happen to other similar societies or organizations for any meeting, conference, or convention you might attend.
