San Antonio is the latest city to be added to the WTTC.com network of city destinations. A 2007 Pinnacle Award winner, San Antonio is the second-largest city in the state of Texas and the seventh largest city in the United States.
Famous for its River Walk and the Alamo, and home to SeaWorld San Antonio, Fiesta Texas and the San Antonio Zoo, the city was visited by some 50,000 delegates last year alone. San Antonio is also home to the McNay Art Museum, the first museum of modern art in Texas.
San Antonio is an ideal place to hold an event — the downtown area is safe and has a lot of hotels within walking distance to the convention center. In fact the San Antonio area is home to more than 35,000 hotel rooms — about 12,500 located downtown. Twenty San Antonio hotels have received AAA’s coveted Four Diamond rating including the Crowne Plaza Riverwalk, Emily Morgan Hotel, Grand Hyatt San Antonio, Hilton Palacia del Rio and Hotel Contessa. Only New York, San Francisco and Chicago have more Four Diamond hotels.
The city also is also rich with special venues to host receptions, sales meetings and gatherings — from Western saloons and ranches, to historic cottages and manors (even an 1860’s-style antebellum mansion).
San Antonio is a member of the Convene Green Alliance, an industry initiative that strives to lessen the environmental impact of organizations and the events they sponsor by adhering to environmental best practices.
