About the Venue and Area:

Located on I-35 between Dallas/Fort Worth and Austin, Waco marks the population center of the state of Texas. Not many other locations can boast to being within a 3-hour drive of 80 percent of the state, making it the most convenient spot for any Texas convention.

The Waco Convention Center is just blocks from I-35, minutes from Waco Regional Airport, and within walking distance of great restaurants, quality shopping, world-class attractions and many entertainment options. Affordable accommodations are never far away.  There are 1,000 convention-quality hotel rooms within a one-mile radius of the Waco Convention Center, 4,200 in greater Waco.

The Silo District Downtown Trolley and the DASH (Downtown Area Shuttle) are FREE shuttles designed to make getting around Downtown Waco fast and convenient! The routes makes it easy to get to Waco’s most popular shopping, dining and art venues in the downtown area.  Both routes have stops along the route but are  FLAG-STOP routes, meaning you can catch the bus at any safe location along the route by making eye contact with the driver and simply waving your arm.

Silo District Trolley – Runs every 20 minutes, Monday through Saturday, from 9:00 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. The pick up location closest to the Convention Center is located right across Franklin Avenue at 2nd and Franklin. Click here for a tracker and map of the route.
