|On February 14, the AdventGX team will be in Austin attending the Unity Dinner and showcasing the Rediscover Texas and Texas Education Vacation projects. “For the Love of Texas,” the annual Unity Dinner is an opportunity for the Texas travel industry to demonstrate to legislators the importance, contribution and impact of the industry. Many legislators are expected to attend, including Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst. At the event, AdventGX will present an upgraded Rediscover Texas Campaign and celebrate the official unveiling of the Texas Education Vacation project.
