List five things you’ve learned about Houston on social media and some of them might be true.
But, did you know Houston is also one of America’s most diverse cities? And, we are America’s fourth largest city. There are lost of us and we are from everywhere. Houstonians from around the world speak 145 different languages. It’s true. Houston is a booming and progressive metropolitan area with a mix of cultures and ideas. What better place for the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants to celebrate our many voices.
We’ll be meeting in the Galleria Area of Houston. Named after Texas’s largest shopping mall just a short distance from the conference hotel, the Galleria is a dynamic urban area packed with restaurants, shopping, office and residential spaces.
Stay close by the conference center or venture out. There are more than 100,000 places to eat in Houston – representing 70+ countries. Explore further and discover our renowned museums, Grammy winning symphony, and vibrant theater scene. Springtime is perfect to enjoy our large urban parks, modern zoo, natural history museum and bontanical gardens. The world is here for you. And, Houstonians are excited to welcome the world, and you, to our hometown.
