Headquarters Hotel

AWCI's official headquarters hotel and the location for most convention and INTEX Expo activities is the Gaylord Texan Resort & Convention Center, 1501 Gaylord Trail. AWCI attendees are extended special group rates of $268 (single or double) per night. March 7 is the cut-off date for room reservations at the group rate or until the hotel is sold out. Reserve your room early online or call (877) 491-5138, and tell the reservation agent you are with AWCI or Association of the Wall and Ceiling Industry to receive group rates.

Your room reservation includes the following amenities:

  • Complimentary high-speed internet access in guest rooms
  • Two bottles of water per day in your guestroom

Please ensure hotel cancellations are made at least 72 hours prior to your scheduled arrival date in order to not be charged one night's room and tax. If you depart earlier than your booked departure date, the hotel will charge a one-night room and tax penalty. All guaranteed reservations that fail to arrive on the scheduled arrival date will be considered no-shows and a charge of one night's room and tax will be posted to the credit card on file.

The Gaylord Texan is a nonsmoking hotel.

Beware any outside call or emails you may receive for “discounted” rates for Grapevine area hotels. AWCI does not use a housing company for room reservations. These calls are usually scams that could result in your credit card information being compromised and no hotel room reserved.
