The AT&T Hotel and Conference Center’s 30,000 square foot expansion is now open in downtown Austin.

The new addition includes the 15,000-square-foot Zlotnik Family Ballroom and 5,000 square feet of pre-function space. Nine meeting rooms and a banquet kitchen make up the remaining 10,000 square feet.

“We’re thrilled to be offering these new, innovative spaces that groups from all over the world can utilize,” said Ted Hibler, general manager of AT&T Hotel and Conference Center. “Whether learning, discussing or celebrating, we know the expansion will provide both guests and locals with a space they can use to collaborate and come together.”

The addition brings the total event space at the AT&T Hotel and Conference Center to 80,000 square feet, which includes 53 meeting rooms, accommodating up to 1,600 people.

The five-story meeting and event space has an abundance of natural light, and each floor features its own layout and outdoor green space, including a variety of terraces and lawn areas. From the building, visitors can enjoy panoramic views of downtown Austin and The University of Texas campus.

The AT&T Hotel and Conference Center is owned by The University of Texas and is located at the south entrance of campus, between the UT Tower and Texas State Capitol.

Food trucks may be mobile, but they aren’t going anywhere, since their popularity only seems to grow with each season. A New Jersey hotel is getting in on the fun! Along with over 18,000 sq. ft. of flexible meeting space, Embassy Suites by Hilton in Berkeley Heights, New Jersey, offers the Grain & Cane “Gastro Truck” as a fun option for a mid-meeting break or post-event dining option.

 

The family-focused, Wisconsin-based Great Wolf Lodge opened its first resort in Wisconsin Dells in 1997. Over the next two decades, it slowly expanded with more properties around the Midwest, moving into the Northeast, South, West and Canada. And this summer, the greater Chicago area will get its first resort from the brand.

 

Houston First Corporation (HFC) announced their redevelopment plans for Jones Plaza, located in the heart of downtown’s Theater District. Rios Clementi Hale Studios (RCHS) was selected to lead this project and stated that they aim to revitalize the plaza into a vibrant public square for all visitors. The project will begin in May 2018 and is slated to be completed in November 2020.
