Houston, Texas is the 4th most populous city in the United States and the most populous city in Texas, with a population of over 2.24 million.
Known as the “Energy Capital of the World,” Houston is a hub for energy and technology, with 25 Fortune 500 companies being headquartered in the city. Aeronautics is also a major industry in the Houston metro area, and Houston is home to NASA’s headquarters – the Johnson Space Center.
A global city, and one of the most diverse in the U.S., Houston is known for its thriving culture, professional arts scene, museum district, and award-winning restaurants. That explains why, according to cvent, Houston “has emerged as one of the nation’s premier meeting destinations,” and is ranked 16th on cvent’s list of the Top 50 U.S Meeting Destinations 2017.
Downtown Houston’s growing convention district, with a variety of unique event spaces and over 5,000 hotel rooms to accommodate attendees, contributes to the city’s status as a top choice for event planners. The city boasts two major meeting facilities – the George R. Brown Convention Center and NRG Park.
Currently undergoing a major renovation, the GRB offers 1.8 million square feet of meeting and exhibition space and is one of the largest convention centers in the country. It hosts a number of well-known events, including the International Quilt Festival, which welcomes over 60,000 attendees to Houston each year. Located a few miles from Downtown Houston, NRG Park covers more than 350 acres of land and offers a total of 3 million square feet of event and meeting space. It is known as “one of the most versatile complex of venues in North America,” and is home to three main facilities: NRG Center, NRG Stadium, and NRG Arena. NRG Park hosts a number of high-profile events, including the Houston Auto Show, the International Gem & Jewelry Show, and the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo (the largest rodeo in the world).
