2019 TDA Conference in Geogetown

The 2019 Texas Downtown Conference will be held October 29 - November 1 in Georgetown.  We are excited about bringing conference back to Central Texas and having an opportunity to explore this community. 

Since 1986 we have partnered with the Texas Main Street Program of the Texas Historical Commission to present this opportunity for educational sessions, networking opportunities with downtown professionals, and field sessions that allow you to explore and learn about an amazing, historic downtown. 

The event is also an excellent opportunity for businesses to promote their products and services and network with downtown professionals through sponsorship or exhibiting.

The conference is open to the public - anyone who cares about their downtown is welcome to attend.


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!

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.

This was my first TDA conference and I was very pleased. For one, I appreciate the reality of the small conference size, in that TDA did not overload the conference schedule and provide TOO many options. I felt it was the right balance between 2-3 options per panel hour and a good mix of off-site tours. TDA's membership is very social and friendly and I immediately felt welcomed, especially attending alone. As a consultant for larger cities, I was eager to learn about what smaller cities need and are doing to compete and thrive. Looking forward to Georgetown next year!
