Frequently Asked Questions About Woodard Summit

Which Airport Should I Fly Into?

For those traveling to our event in Dallas, the main airport serving the area is the Dallas-Fort Worth Airport (DFW). From DFW, it typically takes 20-25 minutes to reach the Westin Stonebriar Hotel.

If you're flying with Southwest Airlines, note that their terminal is at the Dallas Love Field Airport (DAL). Expect a travel time of around 30-35 minutes from DAL to the Westin Stonebriar Hotel.

Is anything happening early in the day on the 13th or is that a good day to fly?

 Tuesday or Wednesday are both excellent days to fly in and get settled and take advantage of the resort amenities. If you prefer to have some R&R before Summit, arrive on Tuesday and take advantage of Woodard's group hotel rate.
