A New Look for the HBGCC

The San Antonio River Walk is one of my favorite places. Strolling alongside the river in the evenings, sitting at a sidewalk café or taking a river cruise... these are things I could do again and again.

What I could skip, however, is figuring out which entrance I need at the nearby Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center (HBGCC) or getting lost once I’m inside.

Go to the Perot

In the first six months after the Perot Museum of Nature and Science opened in downtown Dallas, about half-a-million visitors walked through its doors -- and I was one of them.

I can tell you it’s easy to spend an entire day in the 180,000-square-foot museum filled with hands-on and interactive exhibits. I tried to pace myself, spending equal measure on each floor, but in the end it was impossible. I lost track of time among the dinosaurs, wildlife, gems and minerals, and weather. (Create a tornado? You can!)

All in the family

We were two hours into a four-hour drive when the questions became personal. My colleagues and I were returning from an executive retreat and had already hashed our way through a strategy meeting, determined the next wave of editorial content and decided where we’d stop for lunch.
