What sets Galveston apart from other locations? Galveston Island’s main appeal
is that it is a beautiful beach destination that
is affordable and easily accessible, being just
a 50-mile drive from Houston.
The beachfront Galveston Island Convention Center at the San Luis Resort is
artfully positioned to take full advantage of
the island’s sweeping gulf views, offering
the perfect blend of business and escape to
The 140,000-square-foot convention
center is served by more than 5,000 overnight island accommodations and features
complimentary Wi-Fi, onsite parking and
transportation between contracted hotels.
Galveston’s state-of-the-art facilities and
island atmosphere ensure a meeting is both
productive and memorable.
In addition to the beach, Galveston is different than other island destinations because it
offers so many opportunities for offsite events
and entertaining, including historic Victorian
mansions, unique museums and a variety of
major attractions, including Schlitterbahn Wa-terpark, the Galveston Island Historic Pleasure
Pier and the pyramids of Moody Gardens.
With tropical surroundings and world-class attractions, attendance tends to be
higher than landlocked destinations and
visitors book pre and/or post stays to enjoy
the destination with their families.
