Opengear looks forward to hosting you at our Partner Summit in Dallas, Texas. Over the span of two days, our team will be sharing our plans for the future, examining industry trends, discussing how to amplify our relationship for continued growth and most importantly – to thank you for your partnership.

Good conversations, beautiful backdrop, networking (pun intended) and talking about tools for success. Need we say more?

So why choose Dallas as the backdrop for our Partner Summit? Big things happen in Texas. One of the largest cities in the country, it has a rich history of big ideas – like the first frozen margarita machine and 7 Eleven. It’s also home to Big Tex, the tallest cowboy in the state and our very own Channel Chief, Bryan Keepers.

Ready to saddle up?

We’ll hit the town on our first night of the Partner Summit. Once you’ve settled in, we’ve got a night filled with us going to some of Dallas’ top attractions. We’ll experience the true Texas culture before we kick off the learning portion of the summit on day two.
Once you’ve checked in, make your way down to the hotel bar by 4:30 pm where we’ll kick back, relax and have a drink before the night’s festivities begin. Thank you to Synnex for sponsoring the welcome event!

We’ll tour this legendary 3 million square foot stadium, home to the five time NFL Champion Dallas Cowboys. The locker room and Cotton Bowl offices are just a few of the stops that we’ll make before getting down to the turf through the player’s tunnel.

Located in the heart of the entertainment district, we’ll hit the Choctaw VIP Lounge for dinner. Then kick back and enjoy authentic Texas BBQ, handcrafted cocktails, craft beer, and good company.


Hotel and airfare for this event will be covered by Opengear, all you have to do is bring yourself.
