TAM 2018 Annual Meeting Hotel Accommodations & Transportation Information

 

The TAM 2018 Annual Meeting is happening Wednesday, April 18 –
Saturday, April 21, 2018 in Houston, Texas.  Majority of the conference
sessions and day-time activities will take place at the Hyatt Regency Houston

in downtown Houston.

 

A limited number of trolleys will be provided by the Abilene CVB to transport
attendees during the day between the hotels and the Abilene Civic Center -
schedules will be provided on-site. Ample parking is available at the Abilene
Civic Center for attendees who choose to drive their own vehicle to the conference.
Transportation will be provided from the hotels to the evening events
each night of the conference.

 

The TAM room block at host hotels is from April 3 (for those arriving
early for pre-conference workshops and activities) through April 7.
Many hotels are able to offer the special TAM rates for dates
immediately before the conference or immediately after the conference,
 based on availability.  Be sure to ask for TAM or the Texas Association
 of Museums when making your reservations in order to get the
special TAM rates.

 

A portion of each room reservation goes back to TAM to offset Annual Meeting
costs. By booking within TAM’s room block, you are helping keep the Annual
Meeting affordable and accessible.

 

The host hotels are located on the southern central edge of the city,
near the Mall of Abilene.  There are numerous shopping and dining
options near the host hotels, many within walking distance.

 

Please note – two out of the three conference hotels serve a complimentary
breakfast, for those attendees who are interested in a hot breakfast before
departing to the Abilene Civic Center for the TAM Annual Meeting.
A continental breakfast also will be served at the Abilene Civic Center
for those who prefer to eat on-site, made possible by our
generous breakfast sponsors.
