The Nutrition & Health Conference will be making its home in the Dallas, Texas, area for 2014. Dallas is centrally located and within a four-hour flight from most North American destinations. With the largest urban arts district in the nation, more than 13 entertainment districts, fine dining, and moderate weather, Dallas provides something for every visitor to experience. Addison, where the conference hotel is located, is one of the Dallas area's most popular destinations. With more than 170 restaurants and 22 hotels, Addison offers abundant opportunities for lodging, dining, and shopping, all within 4.35 square miles. Addison perfectly blends the diversity of a big city with the ambiance of a small town and includes the most prestigious shopping in the Dallas area, including Galleria Dallas with Nordstrom and Macy's.
