In-Person Agenda

June 21-23, 2021 | Austin, TX


TASA is planning to host txedFest both virtually (agenda to come!) and in-person at the Hyatt Regency Austin on Lady Bird Lake. To keep our attendees safe and healthy, the hotel will require all participants to take COVID safety precautions, including wearing masks and practicing social distancing. Rather than plated meals, we will serve individually packaged breakfast and snack items throughout the conference. Lunch will be on your own, and our welcome event will be held outdoors on the Hyatt’s terrace overlooking Lady Bird Lake. If, during planning, a hybrid conference becomes no longer feasible due to health and safety concerns or restrictions, we will pivot to a 100% virtual conference.

Please note that the Hyatt Regency Austin on Lady Bird Lake is requiring social distancing and masks at all events, per CDC guidelines. Register by June 11 for the in-person event, because NO on-site registration will be offered.
