San Antonio, already the seventh-largest city in the U.S., is on a population and development boom that has seen the recent opening of 10 hotels and approximately 70 restaurants in the last two years, along with a $2.5 billion expansion of San Antonio International Airport that will include a new terminal and a resulting spike in air lift.
This multicultural destination has also just been named a UNESCO Creative City of Gastronomy and joined with the James Beard Foundation to launch the first Tasting Texas Wine & Food Festival last year.
We checked in with Tyler Orwig, vice president of association and tradeshow sales for Visit San Antonio, to discover what’s new in the meetings and events world and beyond in this always-popular Texas destination that is experiencing a jobs, population and development explosion.
Always a draw because of its epic history, San Antonio will make you remember it for much more than the Alamo.
