At COMMON, we are excited to host POWERUp18 in San Antonio. Learn more about this beautiful, historic and fun city below and then tell us in the comments what you look forward to experiencing in the city while attending POWERUp18.

Few destinations provide a sense of place like San Antonio. San Antonio’s River Walk, Spanish colonial architecture and parks and plazas make it one of America’s most picturesque cities. Also as one of the fastest growing cities in the nation, San Antonio offers modern convenience in the middle of a historic city with diverse culture, ethnic cuisine and exciting attractions.

Much of the city’s unforgettable landscape has grown along the banks of the River Walk (also referred to as the “World’s Largest Hotel Lobby”) where stone paths run aside the San Antonio River connecting hotels, restaurants, shops and the newly transformed state-of-the-art Henry B. González Convention Center in the downtown core. The 15-mile River Walk also links Spanish Colonial Missions (a World Heritage Site, along with the Alamo), museums, public art and the Pearl, a former brewery reborn into an eclectic mix of shops, restaurants and entertainment.

Famed for Tex-Mex, San Antonio is gaining attention for Tex-Next as the nation’s next big culinary destination. From notable restaurants to the Culinary Institute of America, there’s something to satiate every palate. Plus, with sunny weather, over 50 golf courses and theme parks like SeaWorld San Antonio and Six Flags® Fiesta Texas, San Antonio is a destination unlike any other.

When you meet in San Antonio, you’ll have an unforgettable experience that stretches beyond the conference room. As a top travel destination in Texas, San Antonio is a big draw for visitors thanks to its accessibility of location, downtown’s walkability, price and wide variety of options.
