City of Houston Update
Show Management has been monitoring the hurricane situation in Houston. We have received the following information from the Houston Convention & Visitors Bureau:
  • At the moment, Houston's George R. Brown Convention Center is serving as an emergency shelter for thousands who have been left homeless. The Convention Center is fully functional and the convention campus, Avenida Houston, sustained no damage.
  • According to the most recent reports, surrounding hotels in downtown Houston sustained no damage and are fully operational.
  • Many of the facilities in Houston’s Theatre District have sustained damage. Evaluations are currently underway to determine the extent of the damage, and its impact on future operations.
At this time, we aren’t anticipating any interruptions to World of Asphalt.
