San Antonio, Texas

With neither the modern skyline of an oil town, nor the tumbleweed-strewn landscape of the Wild West, attractive and festive San Antonio looks nothing like the stereotypical image of Texas – despite being pivotal in the state's history. Standing at a geographical crossroads, it encapsulates the complex social and ethnic mixes of all Texas. Though now the seventh largest city in the U.S., it retains an unhurried, organic feel and is one of the nicest places in Texas to spend a few days.

Founded in 1691 by Spanish missionaries, San Antonio became a military garrison in 1718, and was settled by the Anglos in the 1720s and 1730s under Austin's colonization program. It is most famous for the legendary Battle of the Alamo in 1836, when General Santa Anna wiped out a band of Texas volunteers seeking independence from Mexico. No other city in Texas reflects the state's Spanish and Mexican heritage better than San Antonio.

When Should I Arrive? Pre-Conference Workshops will begin at 12:00 p.m. on April 13. All other attendees should plan to arrive by 4:00 p.m. Monday to join our Meet & Greets. The Exhibit Hall opens at 5:00 p.m. Monday evening. Please see the Schedule-at-a-Glance for more information.

Climate

Commonly known as "the place where the sunshine spends the winter," San Antonio is situated in south central Texas between the Edwards Plateau to the northwest and the Gulf Coastal Plains to the southeast. The city's gently rolling terrain is dotted with oak trees, mesquite, and cacti, which flourish under the clear or partly cloudy skies that prevail more than 60 percent of the time.

The average high for April is 81 degrees; low, 60 degrees. Please dress in layers as the temperature in meeting rooms can vary.
