Would you know what to do if something went terribly wrong?
Earlier this month, The Professional Convention Management Association hosted their 2017 Convening Leaders Conference in Austin, Jan. 9–11.
“We are thrilled to host convening leaders for the first time in Austin,” says Tom Noonan, president and CEO , Austin CVB. “Austin has become a premier destination for meeting, conventions and leisure business and we are confident that we will see return business from the PCMA attendees.”
The conference attracted about 4,500 attendees and is estimated to bring in around $11 million in economic return.
The Red River Canopy Walk is constructing a $6 million elevated passage in Austin. This will be the only pedestrian bridge that connects the Austin Convention Center directly to a hotel. The passageway between Fairmont Austin and the center will help bring in many high-profile events.
