Travel & Entertainment

All work and no play? Not in this industry!

If you haven’t been to Arlington, TX recently, you’re in for a pleasant surprise. Arlington’s thriving entertainment district just got better with the recent opening of Texas Live!, a 200,000 square foot entertainment complex.  Located between the AT&T Stadium and the new Ranger’s Stadium, Texas Live! will be the best place to go after a long day of working market.

Texas Live! and the AT&T Stadium have both enforced new safety measures in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. We recommend calling any restaurant ahead of time for specific guidelines, or viewing their websites.

Book your room in our hotel block (Connections Housing) and take advantage of the lowest possible rates during market.


Connections Housing is the official housing company for the 2021 Market.

Check back in October for hotel information & reservations for the 2021 market. Each property will have healthy and safety measures put into place to ensure your comfortability during market. We recommend contacting the property directly or viewing their website to learn more about their guidelines.

Beware of unauthorized Hotel Solicitations

It has come to our attention that our SWFM exhibitors, as well as other similar events in the industry have recently been contacted by outside companies referring to aspects of our market including exhibit space and hotel accommodations.


Note that the hotels on the Connections Housing site are the only official hotel providers associated with our event.

While other housing companies, hotel resellers, hotel brokers, may contact you offering accommodations for your trip, they are not endorsed by or affiliated with this market. Beware that entering into financial agreements with non-endorsed companies can have costly consequences.

Only Market Maker Events or Connections Housing staff are permitted to contact you about attending SWFM. If someone other than Connections Housing contacts you to reserve a room for market, they are trying to scam you.

If you have any concerns or if you are contacted by any outside person or company, let us know by forwarding on the email received or provide us with the name and phone number of the person you talked to, in order for our legal team to reach out and stop this unlawful practice.
