STUDY MISSION

DATES

October 10-13, 2017

COME ONE, COME Y’ALL!

We’re heading to Austin! As the state capital, the Live Music Capital of the World, and one of the country’s fastest growing economies, Austin thinks big but holds true to their authenticity.

Accolades range from the fastest growing city, the best city to launch a startup, one of the cities most likely to prosper in the next decade and the No. 1 city for creative job growth.

Laid-back and bustling. Urban and rural. Skyscrapers and stand up paddleboards. Austin has struck the perfect balance of knowing how to get it done and how to have fun. When asked by the Mayor’s office why people stay or relocate to Austin, they quickly quipped, “it’s the quality of life that keeps people here.” 

PROGRAM

Join us as we explore what makes Austin, Austin. As a member of the 2017 Study Mission delegation, you will help set the agenda for the Capital Region as we explore a host of topic areas. Through interactive panel discussions, site tours and immersion experiences, this year’s Study Mission will focus on:

  • Start It Up: Fostering an Innovation Culture
  • Festivals & Food as Cultural Assets
  • Adaptive Reuse & Urban Development
  • Nurturing & Growing a Creative Economy
  • Public Spaces as Cultural Amenities
  • Local Economic Impact of Austin’s Music Industry
  • Building an Identifiable Brand
  • The Advantage of a University in an Urban Setting
  • Community Health & Housing: A Whole Approach
  • Texas: Open for Business
