Annual Conference

KTB Conference Header Email 0118b

We are excited to invite interested attendees to this year's conference in Georgetown, Texas June 11-13

At this year’s conference, we’re examining how strengthening the connection between people and the places they share helps communities large and small shape their public realm in order to maximize the value of the places they work and play by creating community. This type of placemaking inspires people to collectively re-imagine and reinvent public spaces as the heart of every community. Join us at this year’s annual conference – we’re excited to do things differently, together.

  • Conference Keynote

    We are pleased to welcome Allison Orr as this year's keynote speaker. Allison will be speaking at our KTB Opening Luncheon on Monday, June 11. Her keynote will speak to our community's unique opportunities to educate, cultivate and motivate cross-sector partnerships in unexpected places. 

    Activating Communities: A Collaborative Creative Process

    Sometimes inspiration can be found in unexpected places. Choreographer Allison Orr finds beauty and grace in the often-overlooked labor that sustains urban living, including the work of firefighters, sanitation workers, power linemen, and city maintenance staff. Over the past 20 years, Allison has honed a methodology of ethnographic choreography that engages a partnering community as co-creators and performers in large-scale civic spectacles. Through Forklift Danceworks, her nonprofit dance company based in Austin, Allison has collaborated with six city departments in addition to other national and international partners, and her free performances consistently sell out to audiences of 500-6,000 people. Learn how she leverages the creative process to activate communities and cultivate connection among neighborhood residents, city leaders and staff, and community volunteers. Allison received an MFA in Choreography in 1998, is a Distinguished Fellow at Wesleyan University, and was recently named a 2018 USA Artist Doris Duke Fellow—one of 45 artists nationally to receive this award.

    Allison Orr, Forklift Danceworks

    Allison Orr Forlkift DanceworksFrom sanitation workers to firefighters, Venetian gondoliers to power linemen, Allison Orr creates award-winning choreography with unlikely performers. Inspired by the beauty and virtuosity in the practiced, habitual movement of labor, Allison’s dances feature the often-overlooked choreography of work that sustains our everyday lives. Building on her background in anthropology and social work, over the past 20 years Allison has honed a methodology of ethnographic choreography that engages community members as coauthors and performers in the creation of large-scale civic spectacles. Allison’s work has played to audiences of 60 to 6,000+, been commissioned and supported by numerous presenters and funders including the Fusebox Festival, the Kyoto Arts Center, the MAP Fund, New England Foundation for the Arts, Engaging Dance Audiences/Dance USA, the NEA, the City of Austin, TX; and the City of Venice, Italy. Allison received an MFA in Choreography in 1998, studied with mentors Deborah Hay and Liz Lerman, is a Distinguished Fellow at Wesleyan University, and was recently named a 2018 USA Artist Doris Duke Fellow, one of 45 artists nationally to receive this award. Allison is founder and Artistic Director of Austin-based Forklift Danceworks, where she collaborates with a team of artists including fellow choreographer Krissie Marty, designer Stephen Pruitt, and composer Graham Reynolds.

    • Full refund for cancellations received prior to April 6, 2018.

Priority of space assignment will be based on the date and time the application and payment is received. If a number of applications are received at the same time, the company’s history as an exhibitor will be the next consideration for “ranking” the applications. In addition, conference sponsors receive preferred placement.

    The exhibitor registration fee entitles you to booth space on the days indicated and one (1) complimentary conference registration. This badge is transferable among company representatives as long as the exhibitor notifies Conference Management of the changes. Any additional representatives must pay all applicable conference registration fees. You are encouraged to register representatives in advance. All exhibitor representatives are required to wear badges while in attendance at conference functions.

    It is agreed that the exhibitor will abide by the rules and regulations cited above before, during, and after the exhibit, and by other reasonable rules considered necessary by Keep Texas Beautiful or the Sheraton Georgetown Texas Hotel & Conference Center, provided that these rules do not materially alter the exhibitor’s contractual rights.

These regulations may be amended at any time by Conference Management, and all amendments that may be so made shall be equally binding upon publication on all parties affected by them, as are the original regulations.

We’ve assembled a short list of activities you can do in Georgetown to help make your conference experience a memorable one.

    GTX Trippin'
    Check out what Chet The #Daytripper has to say about #GeorgetownTX!

And what's known as The Most Beautiful Town Square in Texas is anything but square.

    Lake Georgetown
    Keep Texas waterways clean! Enjoy the incredible Texas landscapes we work so hard to protect. Get outside with 1,297 acre lake, paddleboards and kayaks available from the Georgetown Paddle Company. To make a reservation, call at 512-868-1300 or visit their website here.

A classic steakhouse and bar located downtown, Wildfire featureseaturing delicious, wood-smoked meats and seafoods and has been described as “a reason to move to Georgetown.” Drop in for lunch, dinner, or even just cocktails. 

    Berry Springs Park and Preserve
    A few miles north of town lies Berry Springs, a beautiful park complete with gardens, fishing, and a hiking trail. Voted as Georgetown’s “Best Kept Secret” back in 2010, Berry Springs is the perfect spot to stop in and unwind. Make sure to bring your fishing poles!

    Georgetown Art Center
    Managed by local nonprofit Georgetown Artworks and free to the public, the new Georgetown Art Center is located downtown in the Historic Firehouse building, which has stood since 1892.

    Blue Hole
    Not to be confused with the Blue Hole of Wimberly, Georgetown’s own swimming spot has plenty to offer. Just north of downtown and along the San Gabriel river, Blue Hole is a great local hangout for swimming, wading, or just lying in the shade. 

    Walking Trails
    The Georgetown Parks and Recreation Department has almost 9 miles of trails running along the San Gabriel Rivers and through the various parks in the city.

    Inner Space Cavern
    One of the best-preserved caves in Texas, Inner Space Cavern can be found just south of Georgetown off of IH35.
