Welcome to Austin
GROUP EVOLUTION takes place at JW Marriott in Austin, TX. The secret is out. Everyone who visits Austin these days leaves with something great to say. They can’t stop talking about our legendary live music, burgeoning restaurant scene and unique culture. And a list of other things that you just have to experience for yourself to truly understand what makes Austin so Austin. The rest of the country has already taken notice. And it’s time you did, too.
JW Marriott 110 E. 2nd Street Austin, TX 78701 855-249-7533 GROUP EVOLUTION has negotiated a special room rate of $ 239.00 per night plus tax for a standard room with single/double occupancy for conference attendees. Rate includes Free Wifi in guestroom. Book your room online HERE or call 800.397.3342 and mention Group Evolution 2018. The group rate will be available until 12/05/17, or until the block sells out, whichever occurs first. **We hope that you will consider staying at the JW Marriott Austin, as it enables us to meet our commitment of rooms, which, in turn, enables us to keep meeting costs as low as possible. When Group Evolution commits to a hotel, we get complimentary meeting space in exchange for booking sleeping rooms. If we don’t make that commitment, there are financial penalties, and this leads to higher costs.**
