Austin Horse And CarriageAPEC has long wanted to hold a conference in Austin, Texas – but we just could not find a site good enough until now. The brand new, just opened on December 27, 2003, Hilton Hotel in downtown Austin will be the site of APEC 2005.

The APEC Conference Committee is excited about Austin as it has so much to offer. Austin is known as the "live music capital of the world" with over 100 live music venues. And live music is only of Austin's many historic and cultural attractions. Austin is one of only a few U.S. cities with professional ballet, symphony, opera, and theater companies. The Austin cultural scene includes 20 museums, dozens of galleries and as many as 35 theater companies.

Musicians With Austin SkylineAs a high tech center, it is the home of companies like Dell, the International SEMATECH consortium and home of too many semiconductor operations to name. In 2003, Forbes Magazine called Austin the "Best Place For Business" with more than 1000 tech companies. As the capital of the state of Texas, it is also an important political center.

Texas WildflowersAustin's attractions are hardly limited to the indoors! Austin and the surrounding countryside are quite scenic with parks, nature preserves and lakes. Nearby is the renowned Texas Hill Country. In early March, the wildflowers should be providing a fabulous spectacle. The weather should be quite pleasant with an average daily high temperature of 21-22 °C (70-72 °F) and an average daily low of 10 °C (50 °F). For more information on Austin and Texas, check the web site 100 Best things to do in Texas (update link of Austin Convention & Visitor's Bureau Web site).
