Houston, TX – Beginning January 2018, the Houston Safari Club will move its annual convention to the George R. Brown Convention Center in downtown Houston in order to expand its venue.
The move allows HSC to accommodate the ever-expanding list of exhibitors that wish to be part of the annual event. The new location affords 104,000 sq. ft. of exhibit space at a central location within Houston. The newly redesigned convention center and adjacent plazas are a destination for locals and tourists. Education programs and evening fundraising events will be hosted by Hilton-Americas Houston Hotel.
“While we held successful conventions for many years in our previous location, it was necessary to relocate to a larger, more centrally located venue. We are excited to host our annual Convention at the newly renovated George R. Brown Convention Center. The increased space will allow HSC to accommodate the waiting list of exhibitors we have been unable to host in the past and will hopefully provide easier access to more attendees in our new downtown location,” states Joe Betar, HSC Executive Director.
“The Houston Safari Club’s convention is one of our area’s largest and fastest growing events for outdoor enthusiasts,” says Mike Waterman, President of Visit Houston. “Because of the significant growth the group has experienced in recent years, they’ve looked to expand to a larger space and we’re pleased that the George R. Brown Convention Center is able to accommodate them. We believe this location will allow the group to continue to expand in coming years, welcoming more individuals interested in preserving the sport of hunting.”
