There’s a reason Austin is at the top of the charts, whether you’re talking Travel + Leisure’s “The Best Cities for Food in the United States”; Golf.com’s “Top 10 Best Cities in America”; Travelocity’s “Ten U.S. Cities Foreign Travelers Should Not Miss”; Conde Nast Traveler’s “2016 Friendliest Cities in the U.S.”; or Expedia’s “#1 super cool US city to visit”.

We plan to “Take It to the Limit” with a program focused on “Creative Ingenuity” as it impacts your professional and private lives. Sessions will highlight new ideas for corporate/industry members as well as our defense counsel.

 

Even with a shortened meeting schedule, there will still be enough time to take in the Austin vibe. Whether you choose biking on the Lady Bird Lake Trail, touring behind the scenes at the State Capital, testing the food trucks on Rainey Street, listening to live music on 6th Street, taking in the sunset at Congress Street Bridge with the largest urban bat colony in the U.S. or enjoying the LBJ Library Museum, Austin has something for everyone.

 

Austin-Bergstrom International Airport, only 7.5 miles from downtown, has many daily non-stop flights to/from 65+ U.S. and International destinations. Please plan to join us at the beautiful JW Marriott in downtown Austin, the heart of “The Live Music Capital of the World”. Within a few walkable blocks you’ll find all you need to know about the tag line “Keep Austin Weird”!
