The hotel is close to the Round Rock Outlet Malls (7 miles), the beautiful downtown square (2 miles), and Inner Space Cavern (3 miles).  The hotel looks out on Rivery Park where there are plenty of walking and jogging trails.  Or sign out one of the hotel bikes and ride the trails.

The rate is $149 per night for single and double occupancy, plus taxes.  The rate is good three days pre- and post-conference based on availability.

The discounted guest room rate is good through July 20.  Don’t delay in reserving your room.  To book a room, you can call the reservations department at 737-444-2700 and tell them you want to book a room in the BOAT 2020 Annual Conference room block.  You can also book online.


Texas Shoot-Out

This year, the Texas Shoot-Out will be on Wednesday and will be a barbecue at the park right in back of the hotel.  It is a popular networking event and a great opportunity to network and have fun.  This event is free to all registrants and their guests and includes dinner.  If you plan to attend, please be sure to mark it on your registration form so that we may plan for your participation.


After the awards dinner on Thursday, we are going to play bingo!  This gives us enough room to socially distance, have fun, and win prizes.

Other Networking Opportunities

There are plenty of opportunities for you to connect with colleagues, sponsors, and exhibitors at any of the meals and breaks!


Each attendee will receive an individual hand sanitizer in their conference bag.  We will also have large bottles of hand sanitizer around registration.  Face coverings will be governed by whatever ordinances are in effect at the time of the conference.  Even if face coverings are not mandated, we recommend you bring your own.  We will have disposable face masks available.  In addition, we will be scanning everyone temperatures.  Meeting space will be set per the Governor’s guidelines that maintain social distance.
