This year’s conference has been moved down to the Lone Star State, near San Antonio’s iconic Riverwalk. The Riverwalk is located 8 mile south of the San Antonio International Airport and hosts some of the most historic buildings in Texas, including the Alamo. There are dozens of shops, museums, and restaurants within walking distance of the conference hotel and we will give you time to enjoy them. For more information, check out this San Antonio Riverwalk brochure created by the San Antonio River Authority (PDF Brochure). For a more extensive guide to the Riverwalk, visit The Riverwalk Guide.
