Message from the Lone Star Intergroup – the Host Committee: Lodging in downtown Austin can be quite expensive, but Capital Metro Transit puts many more moderately priced hotels within easy reach.  http://www.capmetro.org/default.aspx   The Austin Convention & Visitors Bureau’s website http://www.austintexas.org/visit/plan-your-trip/transportation/ has links to other ground transportation options.  

Most online travel services will be able to locate reasonable hotel rooms.  Being a college town, there are also other types of lodging, from upscale bed & breakfasts to dorm-style student hostels.  We suggest you consider staying north of the river to avoid Austin’s notorious local traffic bottle-necking.  Note: Austin-Bergstrom International Airport is south of the river.

Amtrak, Greyhound and MegaBus all have stops/terminals in Austin as well.   The Host Committee has established an email address to handle any logistical questions:  abclonestar@gmail.com 

Whenever possible we also hope to help attendees make connections with others who express an interest in sharing a room or a ride.   We are planning fellowship events for both evenings of the ABC, one of which should be a “Weird Austin” experience.    There is even a Comedy festival, an International Film Festival and a Food & Wine festival all scheduled for Downtown Austin that weekend, so there will be plenty to do if you want to venture out.  So come on down to Austin – come early and stay late!

For questions about the actual Business Conference meeting, please contact the ABC Committee at abc@adultchildren.org

Respectfully,

The 2015 ABC Committee
