"First and foremost, our 70,000 square feet of flexible meeting space makes us stand out among venues," said Silli- man. "Secondly, our event technology and event management teams do an amazing job working with our guests to address and personalize their technology needs and experiences through the use of our meeting planners app. We have the perfect venue for our expo attendees, as every- thing in The Woodlands is high-end, walkable and extremely safe. No need to provide transpor- tation to restaurants, shopping and nightlife." Walkability plays a big part in today's trade shows and expo events. People want more out of the destination than just the show. "Our Town Center is home to The Woodlands Mall, Market Street, The Woodlands Waterway and The Cyn- thia Woods Mitchell Pavilion," said Alie Brous- sard, convention development manager for The Woodlands CVB. "Attendees are able to travel by foot to discover the luxury shops at Market Street, including Tiffany & Co., Marmi, Suit Supply and J. Crew, just to name a few. If the trade show or expo happens to fall over a concert or symphony show, The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion is only a few steps from The Woodlands Waterway Marriott Hotel & Convention Center."
