Brace yourself: the holiday season will be here before you know it. But after the hustle and bustle has died down, have some fun with friends and colleagues at the Texas Press 2013 Midwinter Conference & Trade Show, Jan. 17-19.
This year, the biggest event in the Texas newspaper industry will be held at The Westin Galleria Houston, in the city’s Uptown district. The hotel is connected to The Galleria shopping center, the fourth largest shopping domain in the country - home to 375 stores and restaurants and an ice rink.
The conference is a great opportunity to meet new people, especially during the Trade Show, where vendors and industry professionals will converge to discuss new products and ideas.
Friday night we’ll gather to honor our newspaper veterans — men and women who have made outstanding contributions to Texas newspaper journalism — at the Texas Newspaper Foundation Hall of Fame induction ceremony.
With sessions on sales, photography, design and technology, there’s sure to be something on the itinerary for everyone. Follow Texas Press on Facebook and Twitter to get program updates.
