Texas is the second largest state in the United States of America both in size and population. It is considered a major hub for companies in the fields of energy, computers, petrochemicals, biomedical, aerospace, electronics, and finance.
Texas has a very diverse landscape ranging from deserts to coastal plains to mountains. You will find big metropolitan cities with charming urban developments and an unlimited number of cultural events and historic places to visit. You will definitely want to schedule some extra time around the conference to explore this great state.
Texas weather has multiple climates due to its size. Generally, the best times to visit are from March to May and September to November when the weather is pleasant. Texas is known for its very hot summers and mostly mild winters. For budget traveling, you may want to consider the winter timeframe, as it is considered offseason for traveling.
For traveling around Texas, we recommend you rent a car as it is easier to commute and saves loads of traveling time. Texas has access to 730 airports, with Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport serving as the second largest by area in the United States and fourth in the world in terms of air traffic.
