2019 ASAS-CSAS Annual Meeting and Trade Show
July 8-11, 2019
KNOWN FOR MUSIC....AND SO MUCH MORE.
Years ago when people talked about Austin they would quickly mention the music. But that's just the beginning of what they're saying these days. Austin is also home to a wonderful ballet, world-class museums, one-of-a-kind shopping and beautiful outdoor
spaces. You can just as easily spend your morning paddling the lake as you can strolling through a celebrated history museum. And it's okay if you don't have time to fit it all in, you can just come back and visit us again. - Visit Austin, Convention and Visitor's Bureau
