November 2-4, 2017
“The Live Music Capital of the World” is waiting to welcome you in November! Austin is at the top of many “best” and “most” lists for American cities: Most livable, coolest, best for jobs, fastest growing. It is a city where a college dropout can start a small business that becomes the world’s leading retailer of natural and organic foods; or, another can build a large multinational computer technology company from a college dorm room operation. Austin is the “blueberry in the tomato soup,” a city that strives to be kept weird, home to one of America’s top public universities, and the site of a Presidential library. Recently, Austin became the first, and only, United States City to receive a “City of Media Arts” designation from UNESCO.
The 2017 IAM Fall Conference will take place in the capital city of Texas – where an independent, “we will get it done” spirit thrives in all of life’s endeavors. Your Austin Conference Committee is planning a world-class conference for the world’s leading mediators, in a vibrant place where you can find the best barbecue, live music to fit any taste, and a confluence of divergent cultures. The Committee wants you to experience the feeling that causes many people say “I wasn’t born in Austin, but I got there as quickly as I could!”
We can’t wait to share ideas, conversations, and great company with you. To adapt the motto of the University of Texas, “the conversations that continue here, change the world.’
See you November 1!
