In addition, we have more educational sessions—73!—than ever before, in a variety of formats to fit your learning preferences and style. The Lone Star Expo will also be our largest yet, with 424 booths and hundreds of exhibiting companies bringing you new ideas, products and innovative partnerships to help your property shine and your business thrive.
