The Association for Women in Sports Media has canceled its 2020 convention, scheduled to open July 30 at the Fairmont Dallas. The safety of our members and attendees is our top priority. AWSM has signed a new contract with the Fairmont Dallas to host its 2021 convention from June 3-6. There are no price changes from 2020 to 2021.

Early registration, open to members only, will be available from March 31 through April 10 at a discounted price of $300. General registration will open April 11 at these rates: $750 for nonmembers, $425 for professional members and $350 for student members. Registration will close April 30 or when the event reaches capacity. The past three AWSM conventions have sold out.

Fairmont Dallas, located in the heart of the downtown arts district, will offer #AWSM2021 attendees a rate of $169/night for singles and doubles during the program. Additional adult occupants in the guest rooms are subject to a fee. The rate is good two days before and after the convention, subject to availability, and includes complimentary internet. Valet parking is available to attendees at a discounted rate of $20/night.

The closest airport is Love Field (DAL) – which is seven miles from the hotel and served by Alaska Airlines, Delta and Southwest. Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) is located 19 miles away and the country’s largest hub for American Airlines. Other North American airlines serving DFW: Air Canada, Alaska, Delta, Frontier, JetBlue, Spirit, United and WestJet. As always, AWSM will look to secure nominal airline and airport shuttle discounts for attendees.
