Location and Lodging

River Rally 2020 will take place on the ancestral land of the Tonkawa People at the Westin Riverwalk, San Antonio, in Texas, from May 15th – 18th.

Conference Center, Hotels, and Travel

River Rally participants are responsible for booking their own lodging. A block of rooms is available at the Westin for Rally attendees at a discounted conference rate. Check your registration confirmation email for instructions to book your room – rooms must be reserved before April 29, 2020. This block always sells out, so register early!

The closest airport is San Antonio International (SAT), which is only about 8 miles north of downtown. Public transportation is available from the airport to downtown, but taxis and ride shares are the most efficient way to get to the hotel and conference center.

Awards Barbecue and Celebration

On Sunday, the last night of River Rally, gather with attendees and guests for our annual awards presentation and celebration. This year, we’re celebrating in style with an outdoor Texas barbecue at San Antonio’s Witte Museum, complete with dancing and live music. Don’t miss this special celebration of the 2020 Compton Award winner, our second Emerging Leader Award recipient, and the River Heroes.

If you do not plan to register for River Rally but want to attend the Awards Reception and Celebration, individual tickets are available for purchase.

Transportation between the Westin and the Witte Museum will be provided.
