3. Exploring the Area
You Can Bring the “Hub City” to Your Event

There are many experiences unique to Lubbock that you can provide for your visitors. Host your meeting in a vineyard at one of Lubbock’s award-winning wineries. For an educational twist, hold your meeting among the interactive exhibits at the Science Spectrum & OMNI Theater, or alongside the art on display at one of the Hub City’s galleries, or at the largest windmill museum in the world.

4. Entertainment
The Live Music Scene Provides Plenty of Entertainment

The music scene in Lubbock is unmatched, as famous musicians like Buddy Holly, Waylon Jennings and Natalie Maines of the Dixie Chicks have proven. Their legacy lives on to this day, as Lubbock’s concert halls and venues host performances just about every night of the week. 

5. Seasonal Offerings
Texas Tech’s Sports Games Bring the Fun

If you’re hosting an event in Lubbock during the school year, consider adding a Texas Tech game to your itinerary. In the fall, your attendees can join fans at a Texas Tech Red Raider football game, while in the spring they can see the baseball and men’s and women’s basketball teams compete.
