DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) - Late last week, the City of Dallas hosted GOP leaders in an attempt to bring the Republican National Convention to North Texas in two years. This week, the city is in the global spotlight again as 800 world leaders descend on Big D for the New Cities Summit at the Winspear Opera House.

DFW has already hosted the Super Bowl, the Final Four, the World Series, the NBA All-Star Game and the NBA Finals — all within the past four years. So, when the New Cities Summit kicks off on Tuesday, it will be yet another event to showcase what North Texas has to offer.

This is the third New Cities Summit, and the first one in North America. The event was previously held in Paris and Sao Paulo. The theme of this year’s event is ‘re-imagining cities.’

According to event organizers, around 800 people from 40 counties will be in North Texas, including the world’s top urban leaders and thinkers. During the three-day summit, participants will discuss the future of the urban world in a series of forums and networking events. The summit is not open to the public.

Then, after the New Cities Summit concludes on Thursday, the U.S. Conference of Mayors will open its four-day annual meeting on Friday at the Omni Dallas Hotel.
