2020 Texas Downtown Conference

The Texas Downtown Conference is our annual event that offers educational sessions and networking. In May, the board voted to go virtual this year in light of the pandemic. While we are disappointed that we won't be able to meet in person this year, we are developing a schedule of speakers and panel discussions that will provide relevant strategies and vital best practices for downtowns and communities. More details are coming soon, but please add this event on your calendar for the week of November 9-13. We look forward to holding our conference in Denton in 2021.

Sponsor and exhibitor details will be available soon. Please check back for more information.

Conference registration for attendees will open in August.

Conference Reviews

I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed the Texas Downtown Association annual conference this past November. I brought back so many ideas and found the discussions with other TDA members to be both tremendously insightful and encouraging. I am looking forward to the next TDA event!

Sabrina Martin, City of Baytown

The conference is extremely important as it provides high quality information to towns and cities that may not have the resources to send their staff to IDA or National Main Street conferences. Additionally, TDA can hone in on issues particular to Texas downtowns.
