Welcome Reception / Opening of Exhibits – Celebrating Austin’s Culture
The theme of Saturday night’s opening of the exhibit hall will be “Celebrating Austin’s Culture.” Whether dressing like your favorite Austin City Limits performer or kickin’ back in your boots and bandana, the Opening Reception will celebrate all that is Austin – the live music capitol of the world. Attendees are invited to enjoy the flavors of southwest food and some local music while reconnecting with colleagues old and new. Exhibitors are encouraged to incorporate the theme into their opening night plans.
