Located on the edge of the University of Texas at Austin campus, just minutes from downtown Austin, The AT&T Hotel and Conference Center now offers personalized iPads in each guest room, allowing guests to do everything from order room service to explore the city of Austin, all with the touch of a finger. And the tech doesn’t stop there.

The AT&T Hotel and Conference Center meeting rooms are equipped with high-definition laser projectors, high-speed bandwidth (300mb up and 300mb down), wired and wireless internet connectivity, ethernet data ports and built-in audio-visual capabilities. The venue’s 300-seat amphitheater has a 12-panel ultra-clear digital multimedia wall with screen segmentation, picture-in-picture and other video capabilities. The Center also has a stateof-the-art telepresence technology that enables conference or meeting participants to collaborate face to face, nationally or globally, with up to 48 locations. Now that’s a meeting planner’s paradise.
