APPA and Houston are ready for LIFT-OFF!
Some may be concerned about how recovery efforts will impact the 2018 Winter Training Institute. The Hyatt Hotel suffered minimal damage, never closed, and is currently operating at 100% capacity. Downtown Houston is booming--all restaurants, businesses, and entertainment venues are in full swing. The revenue APPA and attendees will bring to the city will help Houston neighborhoods and surrounding areas in their rebuilding efforts. Let’s make this upcoming training institute in the Space City one of the most well-attended in APPA history!
