2016 Annual Conference and Expo

Thank you for Joining us in San Antonio, Texas for our 2016 Annual Conference & Expo!

The phrase, "Remember the Alamo," may be synonymous with San Antonio, but those who attended the 2016 IAHCSMM Annual Conference & Expo in the Texas city can agree that the educational event is one that will also not be forgotten.
Another record-smashing group of attendees (1,280 in all from 49 states and 21 countries) were on hand at the Conference & Expo, and their excitement and eagerness to learn, network and take in all the meeting had to offer could be felt in virtually every ballroom, corridor and patio. The convention center's magnificent location - on the famed Riverwalk, and just two short blocks from the historic Alamo - provided a perfect backdrop for the event. The conference delivered a wide range of education sessions and unique knowledge building opportunities, exceptional speakers, an expansive Expo filled with the industry's leading product and service providers, and lively social functions that expertly blended food, beverage and entertainment with valuable networking opportunities.
