    Event Description:
    The Texas Food & Fuel Association Legislative Summit connects members of the Texas Legislature with convenience retailers and fuel marketers.  This event happens once every other year and provides a platform for industry stakeholders to speak directly with policymakers to discuss priorities, share ideas, and help build a bridge between the public and private sector.


     Here’s how it works:

    - Scheduling your meetings and pairing you with an experienced team leader;
    - Providing training and briefing materials on a few top legislative priorities; and
    - Coordinating onsite logistics for your entire Legislative Summit experience.

    DoubleTree Suites is offering a special group rate of $239.00/per night 
    Valet Parking Reduced to $25.00/per night
     
    Due to the legislative session, numerous political activities, and demand for sleeping rooms during this time, we urge you to make a room reservation early. Remember, it is easier to cancel a room reservation than to secure a room after the room cut-off date.  Austin is very busy when the Legislature is in session and with the high demand of other corporate and association meetings.
