Why Georgetown?

 

3 Reasons Why Georgetown, Texas is a Top Meetings Destination

Finding the perfect destination for any event is a true balancing act. On the one hand, you want to host it in a first-class venue surrounded by one-of-a-kind experiences. Yet you don’t want to inconvenience your attendees with long travel times or all the big-city traffic. Georgetown, Texas offers the best of both worlds, all while retaining our own identity. Besides our convenient location just north of Austin, our world-class conference center and abundance of unique activities makes us the perfect choice for conventions, corporate meetings, trade shows and more.

Get to know what we have to offer below, then contact us to start planning your next event here.

Our World-Class Conference Center

Settled among verdant oak and mesquite trees near the trickling San Gabriel River, the Sheraton Austin Georgetown Hotel & Conference Center is more than a hotel. It’s a destination. Ideal for functions of all sizes, the hotel has more than 26,600 square feet of event space and 18 meeting rooms, the largest of which can accommodate as many as 1,500 attendees. All meeting rooms are equipped with comprehensive technology, and you’ll have the assistance of on-site experts and meeting planners that will help everything run smoothly. See floor plans, a capacity chart and room set-up examples here.

Beyond its meeting facilities, the Sheraton is a place where your attendees will feel at ease. More than 220 stylish guestrooms and suites include plush king or queen beds with fluffy pillows, dedicated work desks and rainfall showerheads in the bathrooms. The hotel’s inviting restaurant and lobby bar afford space to dine and socialize outside of your event hours, while the outdoor heated pool offers a convenient way to unwind year-round. When your attendees need to work up a sweat, they can either visit the 24-hour fitness center or jog or borrow a bike and explore the nearby North San Gabriel River Trail.

The Sheraton’s world-class service, amenities and convenient location just off Interstate 35 near Downtown Georgetown means it has everything you need to host the kind of event your guests will rave about.

The Best of the Hill Country is Just Minutes Away

Breathtaking underground caverns, wineries serving delicious Texas reds and whites and all the breathtaking architecture of the Most Beautiful Square in Texas. Host your event in Georgetown and your attendees won’t have to go far to experience some of the best the Hill Country has to offer.

Located just a few minutes away from the Sheraton hotel, Downtown Georgetown is centered around the Courthouse on the Square, a historic structure that doubles as a unique meeting venue. Surrounding it are countless restaurants, shops and three wineries, where your guests can fill their glass and stroll the area as they sip their new favorite wine. The arts are abundant here as well, with the works of nationally renowned artists on display at the Georgetown Art Center and live theater productions at the Palace Theatre. For unforgettable team builders, book a session in one of the escape rooms at Boomtown Escapes or a walking tour of the downtown area.

While Downtown Georgetown is a treasure trove of things to do, see and taste, there’s much more going around town. Situated just a few minutes south of Georgetown, Inner Space Cavern is a subterranean wonderland full of breathtaking formations that allows group tours. For an off-site ice breaker with locally brewed craft beer, rent out Rentsch Brewery. Yard games, TVs and an enticing selection of brews await at the brewery, which can accommodate up to 220 if you book the entire indoor/outdoor facility.

To give your guests an authentic Texas experience, host a team-building activity at Reunion Ranch, which provides a range of fun activities that’ll bring everyone together. There are also the elevated obstacles at the Challenge Course, where individual and group activities are designed to develop teamwork skills while having a great time along the way. Finally, a venture out to the Walburg German Restaurant & Biergarten is another great option if you want to give your attendees a taste of the Hill Country’s German heritage.

For more suggested activities, contact our team and we will be happy to assist.

It’s Easy to Get Here

Walk Georgetown’s downtown streets or explore its cave and you’ll feel like you’re a world away from all of Austin’s hustle and bustle. Yet this Hill Country getaway is just 30 miles north of downtown Austin. As close as it is to the Texas capital, your attendees won’t have to stress about navigating all that big-city traffic. If they’re flying into the Austin Bergstrom International Airport or driving up from San Antonio, they can cruise up Toll 130, a route that goes around downtown Austin. Not only that, but Georgetown is less than three hours from the Dallas and Fort Worth area and Houston.

Whether your attendees are arriving by air or by car, they’ll find getting to Georgetown as easy as saying “Howdy, y’all.”

Our world-class conference center, convenient location and wealth of things to see and do makes Georgetown an ideal destination for your next event. Start your planning process by seeing all our venues and service providers, then submit your RFP.
