About the Texas Downtown Conference

The annual Texas Downtown Conference is the only statewide conference dedicated to downtown. Our 250+ attendees represent cities of all sizes, downtown and Main Street programs, economic development professionals, chambers of commerce staff, nonprofit leaders small business owners, and entrepreneur consultants. The event features general and breakout sessions, mobile tours, events, and networking. Sponsorship and exhibiting opportunities are available.

Ivans left me hopeful, the downtown lighting session left me inspired about infrastructure improvements we could make to our downtown, and the vacancies session was informative and provided potential solutions to some of our problem areas.

I think TDA does a good job of bringing "on trend" speakers in that even the most experienced attendees can learn from.
