San Antonio is the seventh most populated city in the United States of America and the second most populated city in the state of Texas, with a population of 1,409,019. It was the fastest growing of the top 10 largest cities in the United States from 2000 to 2010, and the second from 1990 to 2000.The city is located in the south–central part of Texas, and the southwestern corner of an urban megaregion known as the Texas Triangle.
The Conference Hotel, where all conference sessions will take place, is located on the River Walk in Downtown San Antonio. The River Walk is an important part of the city's urban fabric and a tourist attraction in its own right. Today, the River Walk is an enormously successful special-case pedestrian street, one level down from the automobile street.
There is plenty to see and do during the conference including visiting the Spanish colonial missions, the historic Alamo, and the Tower of the Americas.
