Conference & Expo
Did we mention live music?
Highlights from the 2008 Host Committee
The Host Committee is planning three major social events during the 2008 Annual Conference in Austin. Open to all conference attendees and exhibitors at no additional cost, the events are designed to be easily accessible and attractive to all.
Join us Wednesday, just steps away from the Opening General Session location, for "A Taste of Austin Welcome Social." You will enjoy dinner with several different Austin / Texas food options (barbecue, Tex-Mex, southern soul food), soft drinks, cash bar, and live music throughout the event.
Immediately following the Welcome Social will be the "Live Music Capital of the World After-Party." Located only four blocks from the hotel and convention center on historic 6th Street, the venue will be reserved exclusively for NIRSA attendees and exhibitors to enjoy billiards, shuffleboard, darts, and of course, live music!
Plan to attend the "NIRSA City Limits Dance Party" for a legendary event exclusively for NIRSA. A selection of, yes, live musical acts will appeal to varied tastes. Bar foods and soft drinks will be provided.
The 2008 Host Committee is considering several alcohol-free events, such as paddle-boat cruises, activity night at the UT-Austin recreation center, a triple-A baseball game, a vaudeville show, kayaking, rock-climbing, and more.
Stay tuned Austin promises to be an amazing site for our 2008 Annual Conference & Recreational Sports Exposition.
