With the ongoing concerns about COVID-19 (the Coronavirus), we want you to know that the safety and health of 2020 Texas Housing Conference participants is our top priority. We fully anticipate that the virus will be contained well before the start of the Conference on July 20th. As such, we are proceeding as planned, but we’re taking precautions to make sure the conference is as safe as we can make it.

The Fairmont Austin is closely monitoring the Novel Coronavirus outbreak, and working with its partners and global leaders, including Ecolab, to implement measures to minimize risk of transmission and ensure its hotels, employees and guests are safe and healthy.

The Fairmont Austin is further reducing risk by exercising additional preventative measures as advised by Ecolab, which include but are not limited to: increased frequency of cleaning and disinfecting throughout the hotel; reinforcement of personal hygiene, proper hand-washing and use of alcohol-based hand sanitizers; close monitoring of employee health; and increased communication with our partners and government public health agencies.

TAAHP and The Fairmont Austin, along with its partners at Ecolab, are monitoring these cases with the World Health Organization, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the US Department of State, Bureau of Medical Services as they develop and will issue further guidance should anything change.

New Cancellation Policy
To ease any concerns, we are relaxing our registration cancellation policy. Registrants will now be able to cancel registrations and receive a full refund until June 20th.

Book Your Rooms Early!
The Texas Housing Conference room block is already 48% sold out.
Cancellation of individual room reservations made at the Fairmont Austin Hotel up to 30 days prior to arrival will be accepted, and the deposit refunded for those rooms for the full night’s stay.

We remain optimistic that the 2020 THC will occur as scheduled so that our industry’s most important event will continue to educate and facilitate critically needed affordable housing in Texas.
