|The Conference Venue
The venue for the conference is San Antonio, Texas, with an
abundance of vacation spots and touristy activities going on year round.
The most well-known attraction is the Alamo, the site where, in 1836, 189 Texas defenders fought
4000 Mexican troops for 13 days during the Texas revolution against Mexico.
Located just one block from the conference hotel, participants of the conference may want to take this
opportunity to visit this historic site.

The nearby River Walk provides a wealth of restaurants and shops.
San Antonio has many restaurants offering a wide array of cuisines. However, one should not come
to San Antonio and not eat Mexican food. One of the most eye-catching restaurants is just a few
blocks from the conference hotel in the Tower of the Americas. The 750-foot structure
brings patrons up in glass-walled elevators to the restaurant floor, which offers a full
panoramic view of the city.
Other local attractions include amusement parks like Sea World and Fiesta Texas, and scores of parks and museums. Malls are also abundant around the San Antonio area with the River Center, and various shopping centers just up 281 in the Quarry, Northstar, Crossroads, and Huebner Oaks malls.
