Advertising in Dallas


Dallas was founded in 1841, but formally assimilated as a city in 1856. The city became historically noticed with its oil, cotton, and railroad influences. Today, the economy in Dallas is centered around banking, commerce, telecommunications, computer technology, energy, healthcare, medical research, transportation, and logistics. One of the largest and busiest airports in the world, Dallas/Fort Worth International helped Dallas become a strong inland port. The city of Dallas is ranked 14th in the world by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development. It’s the only city in the South Central regional area to be recognized by the OECD.

Dallas is Texas' most mythical city, with a past and present rich in the stuff that American legends are made of. The 'Big D' is famous for its contributions to popular culture – notably the Cowboys and their cheerleaders, and Dallas, the TV series that once was a worldwide symbol of the USA. An upscale ethos makes for a vaunted dining and shopping scene, where the more conspicuous your consumption, the better.
