Meeting Places

Meetings with More

From conventions and conferences to family reunions and trade shows, the San Marcos Convention and Visitor Bureau gives your guests more reasons than ever to anticipate attending your event. Our servicing team is dedicated to helping you achieve more attendance, offering more options for creative meeting space and finding more off-site ways to be entertained when the meeting ends.

Whether you’re looking for a place to make deals, catch up with old friends and family or make the next business breakthrough, San Marcos provides an intriguing, exciting and comfortable environment for any event.

Need more space? For large events of up to 3,000 guests, we offer our beautiful San Marcos Conference Center with 78,800 square feet of conference space and state-of-the-art technical capabilities.

In addition, Holiday Inn and Hilton Garden Inn both have three flexible function rooms, which offer 3,150 square feet of total indoor space with modern technology and can host anything from a 10-guest business meeting to a 200-attendee conference with custom catering.

Alongside more traditional spaces, San Marcos has plenty of unique venues, including craft breweries, museums, galleries, rooftop patios and outdoor locations with river views. Golf aficionados will be more than excited with the recently completed Kissing Tree Golf Course. Designed by nationally-recognized course architect Gary Stephenson and part of the Audubon International program, this Hill Country course highlights the natural character of the land to create a one-of-a-kind experience for golfers.

From intimate inns to full-service hotels, San Marcos’ 34 hotels with more than 2,500 rooms offer the right brand mix for every budget. Those options have grown too with six new properties opening in the last three years.

San Marcos Convention and Visitor Bureau conference services act as a liaison between the meeting planner and the community, directing you to the resources to make your meeting an event to be remembered.
