Looking forward to seeing YOU
in Waco

October 25, 26 & 27, 2022

As part of membership benefits, the Texas Association of Venues & Facilities hosts a conference every year.
Attendees can expect to hear speakers discussing topics relevant to members job functions,
meet partners and vendors that will showcase products relevant to TxAVF members,
network with fellow TxAVF members, and tour facilities within the host city.

The Annual Conference is a great way to expand knowledge within the industry by learning
some best practices from fellow members or speakers!

We are excited to celebrate our 25th Anniversary in 2022
