“If you build a place where people want to visit, you build a place where people want to live. If you build a place where people want to live, you build a place where people want to work. If you build a place where people want to work, you build a place where business needs to be. And if you build a place where business has to be, you’ll build a place where people have to visit.”
- Maura Gast, Executive Director
Irving, TX Convention & Visitors Bureau
