Welcome to Houston, the fourth largest city in the U.S. and one of the most culturally diverse. We are proud of our Texas hospitality, so don’t be surprised if someone gives you a big smile and says “Howdy.” We hope you have the opportunity to visit some of our world class museums, as wells as some more eclectic areas and sample some incredible cuisine.
Registered guests are invited to enjoy the comforts of the Guest Hospitality Suite in the Hilton Americas Hotel located across from the George R. Brown Convention Center. This is the perfect place to visit with friends, relax and enjoy refreshments.
Volunteers from the Guest Program Committee will be on hand to answer your questions about the tours and about the Houston area. Let us help you get acquainted with our city and the surrounding area and provide you with the brochures and maps you need. Whatever your interest, Houston has something for everyone!
This year we have set up a Facebook page to help you connect with old friends, make new friends with similar interests, get links for useful tools, and links to navigate and enhance your stay in Houston during the convention. “Like us” now to get info and updates prior to the convention!
